S8 Area Guide
Batemoor, Beauchief, Greenhill, Jordanthorpe, Lowedges, Meersbrook, Norton, Norton Lees, Woodseats

The S8 postcode area covers the South part of the outskirts of Sheffield city centre down towards Dronfield. Covering a vast array of suburbs, the properties range from larger more expensive family homes in the Beauchief area to cosy more affordable homes in the Jordanthorpe, Norton area. This makes S8 a great place to look for your next property whether you want your family's forever home, or if you are just starting out on the property ladder.

At the most southern part of S8, you will find Lowedges, Greenhill, Batemoor and Jordanthorpe. These areas are removed from the hustle and bustle of Sheffield City Centre and the University campuses. There are still plenty of local amenities and with Woodseats and Chesterfield Road only being a 10 minute bus ride away, so if you fancy something a bit more lively then you've not far to go. These suburbs are close to the Dronfield bypass which leads to Chesterfield. If a daily commute is something you are committed to, then this part of S8 is conveniently placed with easy access to the M1.

Greenhill Park situated in Lowedges offers a playground, a bowling green and a skate park. Lowedges Festival is held here on the second Sunday of August each year which demonstrates the community feel of the area.

Along with all this parkland, S8 is home to a fair few allotments: Woodseats Allotments, Heeley and Meersbrook Allotments and Warminster Road Allotments.

From bistros, delis, Italians, Mexican, Caribbean and Indian, you can pretty much take your pick with any cuisine you fancy. That Place is voted number 6 on Trip Advisor for Restaurants in Sheffield. No mean feat considering that it is only open in the day between 9am and 3pm. It's speciality of a homemade scotch egg is something not to be missed. If you'd rather be eating out in the evening then Viraaj might be a good choice if you fancy a curry.

For something a little bit special then Marco @ Milano is an excellent choice. Serving high end Italian food in a beautiful building, which used to be a police station!
