Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in Bolsover, Derbyshire your home away from home

Nestled amidst the pretty Derbyshire countryside, a holiday home in Bolsover makes the ideal base for exploring the area. Chesterfield is just 7 miles away and Chatsworth House, Kedleston Hall and many other attractions are close by. Bolsover actually dates back over 1000 years as it was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as the property of William Peverel, a knight who fought at the Battle of Hastings. The Peverel family built Bolsover Castle in the 12th century, more as an impressive home than a defensive structure. Bolsover was once a thriving mining town and many of the homes were built for mining families. It has plenty of local shops, pubs and cafés along the pedestrianised High Street along with the local Church of St Mary.

In a nutshell, 'Perfect'!

5 of 5
Arrived on a cold February lunchtime, put heating on and very quickly the cottage warmed up. This cottage was the ideal set up for our adult family of 5, especially with the 2 staircases. Plenty of all we needed: towels, comfy seating in lounge, kitchen pots, pans, crockery, glasses. Beds very comfortable. In short, just about everything has been though of. We enjoyed lots of family time round the dining room table and there is plenty of literature to plan for activity during your stay. Unfortunately, we had wanted to do some fishing but found no day tickets available in this area after a visit to the Tourist Information in Matlock. We still found plenty to do and it didn't spoil our time away. We really couldn't have asked for more from out time here at Button cottage. Thank you Geoff.
