A lovely Victorian house with lots of character close to the Peak District. We're looking to get away in the October 2021 school holidays and are open to offers! We would love a sunny, European swap in Summer 2022, ideally in France!

Hi! We live on the outskirts of Sheffield. There are local shops, pubs and cafes within walking distance and we are a 15-20 minute bus ride into Sheffield city centre. The countryside starts after about 5 minutes in the car and keeps on going! The Peak District up here is absolutely stunning and we continue to be blown away by its beauty. We were even lucky to have the Tour de France pass by very near! There are also plenty of really pretty reservoirs if you need a dose of being near water and the likes of Chatsworth House and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park are musts if you are in the area. Sheffield itself is a really lovely city with a mix of industrial history and an incredible amount of green space to enjoy with plenty of lovely walks straight from our doorstep. Our semi-detached house has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with lots of space and character. There is also a single trundle bed if you need extra sleeping arrangements. There is a large living room, dining room and separate playroom / kids' living room. The kitchen is compact but has all appliances you need including a dishwasher, microwave, Nutribullet and Nespresso coffee machine. Outside is a fairly small garden but it's private and walled and you can have a BBQ if you fancy. There are is also a great big trampoline to enjoy! There are playing fields opposite the house if you want to be more energetic and a playground a couple of minutes walk away. We are hoping to swap in the UK this year due to the continuing uncertainty of Covid and we hope we have interested you in coming to visit South Yorkshire and the beautiful Peaks! We will always reply to any messages sent to us.
