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.

A fantastic base for us to meet with family. Location stunning, cottage amazing! We loved it.

5 of 5
We stayed at the Old Milking Parlour and had a fantastic time. It was a short getaway for us to spend quality time with family. Although there was 14 of us it didn’t feel cramped or we didn’t have enough room. The detail in each of the rooms is clear to see and the views are stunning. A wonderful home from home. Great location to visit other places and a real treat to come back to your own hot tub! Our girls loved joining Farmer Vic to feed the animals - he was so kind to them - and they had a magical time. Right from the start when we booked it, to coming home the service provided has been brilliant. We will definitely look to come back. Regards Jane & family April 2018

A beautifully renovated property in a great location for our party.

It's so difficult to find a suitable property for the number and diverse ages of our family party (18 months up to 92!) but this one was ideal and the owners really helpful. Would love to return another time, but hopefully with better weather!
