Sheffield-born author Jacqueline Creek fell in love with Starling House near Penistone 37 years ago but, at that time it was not for sale. It took a further 21 years before she and her husband John were able to buy it and they have enjoyed 16 happy years there.

Sadly, age and ill-health have caught up with them and they want to move into a smaller and more manageable property, so Starling House on Birks Lane, Millhouse Green, is on the market.

Jacqueline says: " It will be a terrible wrench leaving here. The wildlife we have encouraged to the gardens and pond, and the number of different birds that inhabit our shrubs and trees so close to the house is amazing.
