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.

Fantastic house, beautifully kept with all the little extras. The heated flooring was a massive hit with the kids and adults! The owners obviously have thought of all the things you might need and the cupboards were well stocked. Parking is ok but the road is quite narrow. We did a fantastic walk over Black Rock and also a trip to Bakewell. Wirksworth itself was a short walk via the fields which was very pleasant. From a practical side we did have a Waitrose food delivery which was handy, Spencer's the bakery in town was well worth a visit. Overall we had a great weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the house but also the beautiful setting.
