The Sexton’s Lodge
The Sexton’s Lodge is in the portico of the Grade II* listed Gatehouse to Sheffield General Cemetery.
The accommodation has been furnished with original pieces, lighting and antiques from 19th century and we hope it offers a comfortable base for your stay in Sheffield. It is within a short distance of the city centre, close to Ecclesall Road with a good choice of restaurants and bars and within 5 minutes walk of Sharrow Vale with its range of quirky independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
The Sexton’s Lodge comprises a living / dining room, small well equipped kitchen, shower room and a bedroom. We have taken care to source everything in the lodge from local shops, suppliers and tradespeople. Our volunteers have created a small and simple private gravel garden with an old bench, for you to enjoy. The garden is south facing, so enjoys a sunny aspect.
The lodge has underfloor heating and a thermostatic wall control in the bedroom. The bedroom has with twin beds which can be made up as individual beds or as super king size bed – please specify which you would prefer when booking.
There is a collection of books on local history, wildlife and nature, the growth and development of cemeteries and also a complete collection of books, written by local authors, members and volunteers over the last 20 years. You will also find a series of board games to play.
Local on street parking is available and is metered – at £4.50 per day.
Volunteers doing conservation work are based at the gatehouse, so when they are working, you may experience some noise and activity as they gather their equipment to start work.
