Easy-to-reach yet very rural, this B&B is a perfect spot for exploring the Peaks and South Yorkshire.

Situated just to the north of Sheffield, on the edges of the Peak District National Park, this village B&B feels very rural yet it's just ten minutes' from the M1 and easily reached from a variety of urban centres – most obviously Sheffield and Huddersfield but Leeds too is less than twenty miles to the north. Most importantly, it's a genuinely welcoming  place to stay with beautiful views over the Pennines and within easy reach of some of Britain's best walking and cycling (not least spectacular Wharnecliffe Crags).

Former publicans Rowena and Brian Morrissey's stone cottage, on the edge of the village of Wortley, Finkle Green has just four guest rooms. It's newly renovated with sustainability in mind, and with the help of their architect son they have turned it into a properly eco-friendly place to stay. A series of ground-source heat pumps provides power for the underfloor heating throughout and electricity is provided by a host of solar panels on the roof. As for the rooms, they are crisp and contemporary, with beautifully realised en-suite shower rooms with cool grey tiles. They also make the most of the cottage's countryside views, deliberately not providing TVs and preferring to focus on the peacefulness of the location and the books scattered throughout the property – though they do have superfast wifi so you can curl up with your favourite Netflix series after dark! One room has a king-size bed, two have doubles, while the fourth has a double and a single so is perfect for a family of three. Breakfasts are generous and delicious – the start to a day in the Great Outdoors.

​The cottage enjoys the benefit of a large garden, surrounded by fields and the less domesticated countryside of Yorkshire and the Peak District beyond. There are lots of good walks you can do in the surrounding area and the village has a superb local pub in the Wortley Arms as well as lots of other amenities – shop, post office, church and tea rooms. You're also just a five-minute drive from the Trans-Pennine Trail, twenty minutes from the delights of the Peak District National Park, and for culture-vultures it's an easy trip to the Barbara Hepworth Gallery in nearby Wakefield. ​​ You'e also just minutes away from Cannon Hall Farm, location of the popular Channel 5 series, 'Springtime on the Farm'.  Proper English countryside, on your doorstep!
