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.

All possible needs catered for by Sally the owner, and we have already booked for next year which will be our 3rd visit! Lovely peaceful location with fantastic walks from the doorstep - the best walk is the couple of minutes to the village pub! The cottage has a sun trap of a private rear garden that has open views beyond and our border collie had the time of his life here. Sadies Croft is highly recommended.
