Welcome to Thornsett Properties

Providing Quality Accommodation in Sheffield

Thornsett Properties have been providing quality housing for the Sheffield lettings market since 1985. We are a family owned business with extensive property knowledge and take pride in offering an end to end service to students, professionals and those needing commercial premises. We own all of our properties and are not letting agents, so we are able to offer a wide range of support services to all of our tenants in an efficient and timely manner.


Our in-house maintenance team are on hand to ensure our properties are always well maintained and comfortable. We operate an out of hours service and our online repair reporting service ensures problems are dealt with quickly.

We comply with all the current legislation regarding Gas and Electrical safety inspections, HMO (Houses of Multiple Occupancy) Licences, Deposit Protection and Energy Performance Certificates. We are members of the SSLA (Sheffield Student Landlord Association) and the RLA (Residential Landlord Association)


Our website is the easiest place to find a property. Fully responsive, it will adapt to the device you are using, so you can search and share properties whilst on the go. It will update the moment we add a new property or make any changes to our current listings. We include photographs, floor plans and videos to make choosing the right space for your needs even easier. Once you have chosen the properties of interest, we will carry out viewings for you to gauge a better idea if they are suitable.

We also advertise on Rightmove and so wherever you choose to search you’ll be able to find our properties.

Tenant – Flat 2, 146 Broomspring Lane
I would highly recommend Thornsett properties
If there is ever an issue with the maintenance in the property they come the same day to fix the problem. They are very friendly and amazing landlords can’t fault them
Tenant – 39 Barber Road
I’ve now been with thornsett for 2 years and they are the best landlords!
The maintenance team (Brad and George) are legends! Any maintenance queries are met within 24hrs of reporting and they complete the jobs quickly and efficiently and are genuinely lovely lads, could not recommend Thornsett more!
Tenant – 49 Spring Hill Road
Tony has done everything we have requested for when we move into our new house
He has repainted the whole house, put new carpet down and refurbished both of our bathrooms so that they are modern and of good quality. It feels very homely.
Tenant – 50 Spring Hill
Loved having Thornsett as my letting agency this year,
Have aways supplied us with what we’ve asked for or needed. The flat has felt really secure all year making it a safe and comfortable living situation. The maintenance has also been great, shout out to Brad who’s at our beck & call whenever we need it !! Amaze !!! ♥️♥️♥️
I have been with Thornsett for three years because of how great they are.
They are super quick with any maintenance required, from replacing the washing machine to bringing new furniture and are always super friendly and will answer any questions/problems. They were recommended to me when I was looking for student housing in my first year and I can definitely see why!
"The staff are very helpful
Brad the maintenance man is always a great chatand extremely responsive. He has come and gone within the hour many times!"
The Thornsett team have done a phenomenal job of doing the house up
They were great at communicating how the work was going and very accommodating when it came to moving our things from our first year accommodation to the house. The house looks unrecognisable compared to what it was previously and we are all thrilled with the outcome. A big thanks to Tony, Brad, James and George and the rest of the team.
I have been renting with Thornsett for nearly 5 years and that is partly to do with how well we have been treated as tenants.
My partner and I feel that we receive a high quality service over the years and management are easily reachable and always happy to help and to answer our queries. The maintenance service with Thornsett is non like any we have experienced with previous rented properties - they respond usually within the day and polite and efficient whenever they have been to the property. Thanks to all at Thornsett!
