Finkle Green is a newly refurbished bed and breakfast on the edge of Wortley Village in the Pennine Lowlands between Sheffield and Barnsley, offering comfort and tranquillity for traveller and holidaymaker alike.
The detached cottage is set in a peaceful rural setting within 3/4 acre of private garden, surrounded by open fields and with panoramic views of the rolling Yorkshire countryside and the Peak District moorlands.
Finkle Green was completely renovated in 2018 to an exceptionally high standard. All efforts were made to ensure the building was environmentally sustainable and it has ground source heating and photovoltaic panels to generate energy, along with a wood burning cooker and stove.

All bathrooms have soft white towels, slippers, complimentary toiletries and a hairdryer. Tea/coffee, biscuits, water and complimentary Superfast Wi-Fi are also available to enhance your stay.
