We have almost completed the renovation of this 18th century house which was originally two separate cottages. Hemingfield, about 5 miles from Barnsley, is on the edge of the Dearne valley with lots of country walks, two pubs (one recommended for its food) and a farm shop.

We're just 1 minute from the Dearne Valley Parkway, 5 mins from M1 J36 and 15 miles from Sheffield.

The space
*covid19 update*
Please note: this suite is in our home. To make you feel safer we have put a small fridge, microwave and some basic kitchen items in there so you can prepare basic meals without having to share our kitchen.

The attic suite will be yours. There is a large light bedroom and your own en-suite with both bath and shower. Please note that as we live in an old cottage, the stairs are narrow and winding so it might be a struggle to carry large suitcases up there.

Where you’ll be

Barnsley, England, United Kingdom

This is an ex-mining area with a lot of mining heritage celebrated in the area. Elsecar Heritage Centre (1.5 miles away) has lots of shops, an antique centre and runs many events plus we're 3 miles from the fabulous Wentworth Woodhouse stately home and grounds. A little further away there are beautiful walks, reservoirs, views and pretty towns and villages in the Peak District.

The Dearne valley is noted for its bird watching - there are seven reserves within a few miles of our house including RSPB Old Moor (3 miles away).

We're happy to point you in the direction of eateries, good pubs or other things to do. Just ask us.

After living in Sheffield for nearly 30 years, John and I made the move out of the city in 2015 and we've been doing the house up ourselves. Hard work but rewarding. I'm never happier than when I'm pottering in my garden but that has had to take a back seat, firstly because of the house renovations and recently because I'm setting up my own salads business.
