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 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.

This was our first time at 'Farmer Vic's, but it won't be our last. The Farmhouse South Wing suited our requirments perfectly. All the bedrooms are a good size and beds, bedding and towels of a very good quality and there was a TV in every room.There was plenty of hot water and the house was nice and toasty (a bit too warm sometimes, so next time we need to get the hang of the heating timer!) The large dining table seated us all easily for our evening meals and there were plenty of comfy seats for us to retire to afterwards for playing games and watching TV. The kitchen was well equipped and the addition of a drinks fridge meant there was plenty of room in the main fridge and freezer for our other stuff. The only items we felt were lacking in the kitchen (or we couldn't find them!) were a chopping board and a tray. The animals outside were a delight, free roaming peacocks and ducks, meerkats, sheep, guinea fowl in the field right outside our door. Lovely Farmer Vic arrived just as we were about to have breakfast on our first morning with a dozen freshly laid eggs and spent some time answering our questions about the animals. We are already planning our return visit for next year

Shops and food places are just a short commute. Walk around the reservoir is absolutely refreshing. Tim and his wife were fantastic hosts! Will be coming here again in summer for sure.
