The space
La Belle B&B is part of an established country home set on half an acre. The private bed and living rooms have recently been refurbished with guests in mind. Furniture has been locally sourced and upcycled - each piece with its own story. The new queen bed and associated bedding and linen have all been chosen for their quality and for your comfort.

PLEASE NOTE: while there is no access to cooking facilities, there is a microwave (suitable for reheating food) plus a small refrigerator in the living area. Laundry facilities are not available for overnight stays. The local Sheffield Hotel is just 1km from the B&B and is available for Bar & Restaurant meals - Tues to Sun.

Guest access
Guests will have independent external access and will be provided with a key. Off street parking is available.
