Sheffield holiday cottages are perfect for visitors who want to explore a creative, industrial city, with easy access to the Peak District National Park. Sheffield is located in South Yorkshire, in the eastern foothills of the Pennines and the River Don valley. It played an important role in the Industrial Revolution, with a huge steel industry and the development of many inventions during the 19th century. Although no longer characterised by smoking chimney stacks, it remains a busy, innovative city with a strong identity. Exploring the city centre from your Sheffield holiday cottage, you will discover independent shops and a thriving food scene. That Place, Dos Amigos, Olive and the Hidden Gem are among the city’s best-loved restaurants, while the Sheffield Tap, Red Deer and Kelham Island Tavern are among Sheffield’s best pubs.
Underbank Hall Cottage is a romantic cottage for couples in a secluded rural location with breath-taking views of the valleys and hills between The Peak District and The Pennines in Stocksbridge, but still within easy reach of the fleshpots of Sheffield. Pets welcome.
Self-catering holidays in Sheffield would be incomplete without exploring a few of the city’s attractions. Millennium Gallery is home to excellent exhibitions featuring local artists, and provides an insight into Sheffield’s steelworks heritage. Sheffield Cathedral is the city’s oldest building, featuring stones from a Norman church dating back to the 11th or 12th century, and beautiful stained-glass windows. And the Winter Garden is a stunning temperate glasshouse with more than 2,500 exotic plants from all over the world. If you fancy an evening out in Sheffield, see what’s on at the Crucible or the Lyceum, both of which host a busy programme of exciting shows.
Walking is one of the best ways to discover Sheffield, with many spots such as Meersbrook Park providing spectacular panoramic views of the city. The Sheffield Walk of Fame honours famous residents of the city is a similar style to its Hollywood equivalent. The hills, valleys and gritstone edges of the Peak District lie directly to Sheffield’s west, providing solitude and spectacular landscapes within a half-hour drive of the city centre.
