“I moved to Dun Works as I thought it would be the perfect base for me to do my work – and I was right!”


We’re really proud of our apartments at Dun Works, as a lot of time, effort, planning and love has gone in to building them. We’ve all worked really hard to make sure that our tenants have the best experience living there – so it’s nice to hear our tenants love them too!

Alex moved into a one bedroom apartment in December last year, as he felt it was the perfect location for his business. Since moving he’s been really enjoying Kelham Island life since then.

What attracted you to Dun Works?

It was mainly the location. I thought Kelham Island would be good for the business I am in – and I was right! It’s a fantastic spot as I can work from home and then nip out to local cafes for meetings.

What’s your favourite thing about the apartments?

Jim! Not only is on hand to help you when you need something, and to take in your parcels but he’s great to just have a conversation with. I also just really love the location. It has great access to all of Sheffield.

Was the area a deciding factor on choosing Dun Works?

Yes, just because there is a lot of upcoming stuff about Kelham and loads of activities happening. It’s just a really exciting time to be around the area and I wanted to be part of it.

What do you like about living in Kelham?

Everything! The night life is great – I could spend a lot of time in Cutlery Works and Church. My favourite place at the moment has to be Cutlery Works – the food, drink and atmosphere is just unreal!

Why would recommend Dun Works?

It’s just a great place to live. During the whole process and even after, Kelly has been a massive help.

"From the first viewing, I fell in love with the apartment."


We’re really proud of our apartments at Dun Works, as a lot of time, effort, planning and love has gone in to building them.

But, don’t just take it from us – here’s what some of our tenants have to say… 

  • “I wanted to save money on renting, so when I came across Dun Works on Rightmove I was really excited – and surprised by the price.”

  • “From the first viewing, I fell in love with the apartments. It’s a great location, the studio is spacious and kitted out with a large fridge/freezer, great cooker and stylish units! What really stuck with me though was how informative and helpful everyone was on move in day.”

  • “My studio is furnished and I’m so happy with the overall look. It’s spacious, bright and well-ventilated plus I am a huge fan of the wood vinyl flooring. There’s plenty of storage space – even a utility room!” 

  • “I was blown away by the speed of the broadband when I moved in, and it was fantastic to be able to connect from opening that front door on day one. I’ve never had that in flats before.” 

  • “I’ve always fancied living in Kelham Island, as not only is the area itself fantastic but it’s close to the city with great transport links. Plus, my gym is in walking distance.” 

  • “The price for my studio apartment was way below what I was expecting – considering the specifications. I know I wouldn’t be able to get a flat as good as Dun Works elsewhere in Sheffield! Here’s to a happy first year in Kelham Island.”

Have you met our new caretaker?

Meet Jim, our new caretaker and handyman at Dun Works.

Jim has been doing an amazing job over the last few weeks looking after all our resident’s needs – and we couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.

Not only is he friendly and approachable but he goes above and beyond to make sure all the tenants have the best service possible and are happy in their new homes.

If you rent with us and had a repair need in your home, Jim will organise and arrange access to your apartment so a contractor can attend and fix the problem as fast as possible.

And, if you’re not in – don’t worry, as with your permission he can let the contractor in, and will wait with them until the work is done.

Not only this but Jim is always happy to sign, store and deliver parcels to your door that arrive on site. And, because he wants to make our residents as content as possible, he makes sure the buildings and communal spaces always look their best.

So, if you haven’t had chance to meet Jim yet – head on down. He’s on site within working hours all week and he may even treat you to a cuppa and biscuit.


“We wanted to create lovely homes, with our tenants at the heart of things."

A couple of weeks ago, we met with some Dun Works tenants as part of a research project with CaCHE at the University of Sheffield. The project is all about “what makes a place you’d happily call home?”

Amongst their thoughts on that, our tenants had some really fantastic feedback on how they feel about Dun Works. It was great to hear how happy they are with their new apartments and we can’t wait to welcome more of you!

Have a read through some of their thoughts below:

  • “I had three weeks to find somewhere to live. I viewed about 10 flats in total, and even though this was the same price as the other flats this one was so much bigger - you get a lot more flat for your money and the location is great. Even if I’d had more time to look I’d still have chosen here.”

  •  “I really like it here, I’d like to stay.”  

  • “The flats are so well insulated you couldn’t even hear the fireworks on bonfire night…and I’ve not put the heating on yet!”

  • “We really liked it so we snaffled it quick! You feel pressure to get independent places before they all go.”  

  • “Dun Works was the only listed place on Rightmove and Zoopla that had real life photos of the flats to view. It instantly looked nice.”

What a view!

After catching sight of the glorious sunshine, we decided to take some time to appreciate the stunning view across Sheffield.

Here at Dun Works, you’ll get to wake up each morning to this - it’ll vanish that Monday morning feeling for sure!


Just around the corner...

At Dun Works, we really are in the heart of things. No matter which apartment you live in, we’re just a few minutes walk away from the popular Krynkl.

Krynkl is a fantastic new space which showcases the best and most exciting independent businesses from Sheffield.

From Jorro and The Bunker through to Knots n Niggles and Inc Sheffield, there’s something for every occasion! If you haven’t had chance, head on down and check it out. And, don’t forget to treat yourself to a cheeky cocktail on the rooftop terrace at Inc Sheffield.

Peddler Market


7 minutes from home...

Peddler market recently celebrated its third birthday as a firm favourite within Sheffield’s must-do social calendar, and it’s not hard to see why!

The first weekend of every month sees different traders come together under one fairylight lit roof, each of them hand-selected for their reputation as the best of the best. With all the delicious food and drink, performances from local musicians, and whole host of exciting makers and artists, Peddler is the perfect place to discover new favourites.

If you’ve not yet been then clear your plans for the weekend as Peddler is returning for its renowned Christmas special. What better way to welcome December than with a few mulled ciders and live festive music from Sheffield University Big Band (Saturday afternoon).

You can also catch local faves such as Learn Create Sell, The Level Collective, Nether Edge Pizza Company, The Depot Bakery, and lots more - there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

Experience has taught us that it’s probably worth skipping breakfast (and lunch) to make sure you have enough room to sample all the goodies. We wouldn’t recommend you quote us on our nutritional advice, but you can thank us later when you manage to squeeze in another tasty dish or fancy cocktail.

Join us in the Peddler warehouse at Kelham Island on Burton Road this weekend. We’ll probably be in the courtyard swaying happily to music and deciding which food to try next!

Stew and Oyster

30 seconds from home...

Originating in Leeds, the Stew and Oyster has taken a trip down the M1 to join us here in Sheffield and it’s a seriously welcome addition to Kelham Island.

From the moment you step through the door you know you’re going to be well looked after. The staff are friendly, the whole place has an element of warmth and comfort, and the heavenly pots of fresh, homemade stew seem to last forever.

We'd recommend the red lentil dahl, chicken and dumpling stew, and the thai belly pork dish, all of which are served with a hunk of fresh bread and delicious wholegrain mustard butter. The menu is very reasonably priced and you can even get free refills on soft drinks.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Stew and Oyster experience is filled with other thoughtful little touches, like a free chocolate brownie with your first hot drink order, and a treasure trove of free essentials to use in the loos (they do say you can learn a lot about a place by their loos!).

There's something here for everyone, whether you're a new Mum looking for a change of scene, friends looking to catch up, or colleagues looking for a great space for a lunch time meeting. Don't forget about that free brownie too, although maybe keep that to yourself and get your order in first!
