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.

The Building was lovely and full of character, with all the mod-cons you would need. The location was beautiful too with some nice walks and pubs in easy access. We were a group of 24 but Rachel was really accomodating in arranging beds/sofa beds to suit our needs. Big Thank you to the Rachel and co. for a comfortable stay, would highly recommend!

It was a nice surprise to find the heating had been turned on before we arrived on this cold December afternoon. The facilities were generally very good and there wasn't anything we needed that we could not find ready to hand. It was clean and comfortable and in a very good location for walking our dogs with lots of local routes from the door of the cottage. Clumber Park (NT) and Sherwood Forest a short drive away. The owners were very helpful too.

Henmore Cottage has it's own parking right outside in a courtyard. The owners live in the house nearby and provided a nice warm welcome. The cottage great and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. These cottages are great inside and felt like a home from home. We would recommend staying at Stainsborough Hall and will book again!
