The Northern England / Yorkshire/Yorkshire Dales region
The apartment is situated in south west Sheffield within 5 minutes of the Derbyshire / South Yorkshire border. Derbyshire offers the visitor extensive holiday opportunities. Walkers will enjoy exploring the Peak District National Park (15 minutes away) while those interested in English historical heritage will wish to visit the impressive Chatsworth, Hardwick, and Haddon Hall stately homes. Derbyshire boasts many particularly beautiful towns and villages such as Buxton, Matlock, Bakewell etc. During the summer some of the smaller villages have their annual well dressing ceremonies which have their origins in the Middle Ages. For those interested in transport history the Tram Museum in Crich is a must. Not all attractions are above ground level as there are opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to visit the famous caves (Blue John, Speedwell, etc) around Castleton.
Slightly further afield but still only 1 - 1.5 hours distant, Nottinghamshire offers interest to the visitor whether it be in exploring Sherwood Forest (Edwinstowe) or the historic city of Nottingham itself.
Thanks to the near proximity to the M1 and its newer motorway links to the A1(M) North Yorkshire is quite possible for day visits. This opens up the opportunities to explore the Dales, the spa towns of Harrogate, Ripon, and Knaresborough, or historic York itself. A good train service operates between Sheffield and York giving the visitor a particularly convenient way of reaching this location.
The Sheffield / Broomhill area
Having had a famous heritage in the production of high quality steels and cutlery Sheffield has reinvented itself as a modern and vibrant city with an economy based around the University, light industry, and tourism.
The Millhouse's apartment is located in the South West of the city between Broomhill and the famous Botanical Gardens. A walk around the area will allow the visitor to admire the impressive residences which were once home to the steel and cutlery barons who made this part of the city their home. The Botanical Gardens are literally 5 minutes walk. Over the past 10 years they have been extensively restored to their original glory and are now impeccably maintained by an enthusiastic team of volunteers and professionals. The Glasshouse contains specimens from all the principal global regions. Staying local the flat is located adjacent to the lovely Endcliffe Park and from here one can walk through a string of interlinked parks out into the Derbyshire countryside. (30 mins) Dining out presents no problem as one only has to walk down to Hunters Bar (5 mins) and you have a selection of excellent bars, cafes, and restaurants. Public transport to the centre of Sheffield is very good with a bus route on the adjacent road and several more routes within 5 minutes walk.
