“Warm welcome at Barnfield House”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

A warm welcome greeted us at this delightful place. Helen and Michael have a wonderful spot with fantastic views in Loxley. Perfect location for exploring the local area and Peak District. Rooms were large, light and very comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best we've had!

We stayed 2 nights at the fabulous Bed and Breakfast. We had a truly friendly welcome and was shown to our room, the Will Scarlet room which was spotlessly clean and fully equipped and even had robes and slippers, chocolates and a selection of beverages, which was a really nice surprise. Something you don't always get even in top Hotels.The Bed and Breakfast has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and nothing appears to be too much trouble for the Proprietors. The breakfast selection is excellent and the food prepared beautifully to your own tastes. The location is perfect for shopping in Sheffield or walking around the magnificent countryside. A true gem of a Bed and Breakfast and exceptional value for money. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent, we stayed in the Will Scarlet room which was really lovely.

... that, having once stayed at Barnfield House, you will be left dissatisfied by anywhere else thereafter. Looking at the visitors' book, I was struck by how many guests had returned, often countless times and from far away; which rather confirms my suspicion.

I was driving my son 200 miles north to Sheffield for university interviews, and (since it was, and will doubtless remain, TripAdvisor's top-rated place in Sheffield) I booked in here beforehand. Memories of the long, dull drive were instantly dispelled by the warmth of Helen's welcome. The rooms were immaculate, beautifully furnished and lavishly equipped. Each is themed to a character from the Robin Hood legend, and Will Scarlett would not be the place to wake with a hangover! The welcome pack includes pictures of the painstaking transformation from a weary, neglected retirement home to a sparkling caravanserai.

The views from the rooms are astonishing, and even the bleakness of the January weather could not detract from the majesty of the fringes of the Peak District, just 10 minutes from the centre of the city. The house is tucked up a private drive, and is therefore very quiet. After a quick shower we drove a couple of miles up the hill for supper at the Old Horns in High Bradfield.

In the morning, Michael provided us with a lavish and delicious breakfast, as well as conversation and local knowledge. The special that day was scrambled egg and smoked salmon, which certainly set the boy up nicely for his 'ordeal'. I really hope that he gets a university place there, if only because I will then have every reason to return to Barnfield House for years to come - like so very many others.

So much thought and care has gone into the design, the ambience and the whole approach to providing hospitality that every B&B owner in the country should visit, to learn how things should be, and are, done.

A very warm welcome awaits at Barnfield House.My stay of 2 nights was a very enjoyable one.The food, the room, the location and the stunning views, all perfect.
It is no surprise that this establishment has such a wonderful reputation.
I have a dietary requirement of gluten free food and this was catered for without any problem.
Thank you Helen and Michael.

Stayed 3 nights in this exceptional B&B. The proprietors were very welcoming and couldn't be more helpful.
The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean.Very nice decor too. Great scenery from our 3 windows :) a bonus!
The location was perfect for us going in and out of Sheffield.
The Yorkshire breakfast was just fab. Would highly recommend this B&B :)
Thank you for all the care given.

Room Tip: Only saw our room....which was 'Friar Tuck". Couldn't have had a better room for views...

It's taken me some time to write this review because I can't think of anything original to say; the other reviews say it all. Michael and Helen have a talent for what they do; the place is immaculate; everything is provided; nothing is too much trouble (thanks for the use of the tumble dryer, Helen, it's the couple who insisted on walking round Damflask during the storm) and, above all, they have time for you. The house is ideally located; the views stunning and there's the Bradfield Brewery brewery tap, the Nag's Head just down the road! What more could you want?

Just awarded a gold star and well deserved. We stayed one night with our 17 year old daughter. Two beautiful rooms, very clean and comfy- bathrooms spotless and towelling robes also provided. Yorkshire breakfast wonderful. Lovely welcome- hopefully have an excuse to return
