Staying In Luxury
There aren’t a great deal of 5-star options in the city of Sheffield itself, but the suburbs and countryside around it offer a touch of luxury. Brocco On The Park, to the South West of the city, hosts Scandinavian-chic rooms that start at £100 and is highly acclaimed by travel writers and reviewers. The Norfolk Arms, in the village of Ringinglow, is a small but perfectly formed hotel with a hybrid feel of pub-meets-luxe. Popular with weddings, rooms and suites cost about £105 on a B&B basis. The Copthorne Hotel is nice and central with two dining options and spacious rooms starting from £75.
Somewhere a bit different…
If you’d like to explore the city of Sheffield from a base that’s a little less traditional, there’s lots of accommodation in the centre and further afield. From luxury penthouse apartments to garden flats, Sheffield residents in all quarters of the city offer out their homes while they’re away for holidaymakers and visitors to stay in. Airbnb’s options for Sheffield include studios, duplex apartments, annexes, warehouse conversions and shared homes.
If you’d prefer to be ‘at one with nature’, you don’t need to travel far to find the great outdoors. Fox Hagg Farm Campsite hosts tents and caravans, Fanshaw Gate Farm is a dedicated Caravan Club site and Swallowholme Camping and Caravan sits in the middle of the picturesque Hope Valley.
