Hardwick House B&B is located in the bustling South Yorkshire city of Sheffield. We are well placed for those wishing to discover the many attractions and amenities that the city has to offer.
There are only three guest bedrooms, (2x doubles and a twin-bedded room), which are of course centrally heated and each contains a colour television, together with tea & coffee making facilities and each has its own bathroom.
Bedroom 1 is the "Victorian Gentleman's Room", (the room is, however, somewhat warmer than the original, due to 24 hr gentle heating piped up from the Aga stove below!) with gothic bed, cast iron fireplace (though with a cunningly disguised gas-powered fire!) and views across the city that extend (on a clear day) about 6 miles. Double doors open into the small bathroom (which was formerly a small bedroom) which has an original (large) cast iron bath, high flush lavatory and pictures of some rather stern family ancestors (on the wife's side).
Bedroom 2 is the "Swedish Room" (named after a certain infuriating furniture store who make you walk several miles for even the simplest purchase) in beech, chrome, low voltage lights and so on. The views are similar to the above. Off this is a walk-in shower / w.c. room, entirely clad in Chinese slate.
Bedroom 3 is the twin-bedded "French Fin de Siecle Room", with faded gilt, Toile de Jouy and large south-facing bay window. The room floods with light on a sunny day. A tiny door opens into a large bathroom/dressing room, decorated in the same vein and the view from the bath extends a mile across the valley to the wooded slopes of Ranmoor and the university halls of residence for the poor starving students; the view is one way, so they can't see you!
Breakfast is served in a large kitchen/dining area, which is the most idiosyncratic part of the house. The room is large (about 9 metres by 4.5 metres), always warm due to the aforementioned Aga, which is up to temperature 24hrs a day. Two sets of 'French windows' open onto the balcony which overlooks a surprisingly sizeable garden in which can be seen about 3 hens (for eggs and as pets, not eating...) and the sun (when available!) streams into the room in the morning. The whole room has lots of wood, combined with bright colours and has a pleasant 'ambience'; and we didn't copy any magazines or buy the kitchen from a shop!
We are actually located 2 miles (3km) west-south-west of the city centre, a small, quiet (unusual in a location so close to the city), residential 'cul-de-sac' with good on street parking.
