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

Chesterfield is just 7 miles away and Chatsworth House, Kedleston Hall and many other attractions are close by.

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.

On arrival we was greeted with a hamper of chocolate, wine, bread, butter and jam (lovely touch) the cabin itself is very spacious there's 2 bedroom each with ensuit. The hot tub was great although I would say not very well lit as it gets dark really early that time of year however wasn't a problem. The beds were very comfy. Can't really complain about anything we had a lovely stay and will Defo be returning in the future.
