The property

Bolsover 1.8 miles.

Nestled on the outskirts of the charming market town of Bolsover is the breath-taking Water Tower.

Next door to the owner's property The Works (as featured on Grand Designs, 2003), The Tower offers a truly unique experience.

This unique and beautiful converted water tower is the perfect setting for couples seeking a romantic getaway; encompassed by countryside and boasting a stylish interior with Art-Deco window surrounds, original windows and doors and a raw, authentic and Brutalist feel that pays homage to the building's origins, a great setting for those seeking something new!

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the fully-equipped kitchen where you can pamper your partner with a delicious meal while the light from the glass ceiling shines down on you.

Enjoy this together at the pull-out table and raise a toast to your romantic retreat before snuggling up on the plush L-shaped sofa in front of the soothing warmth of the crackling woodburning stove and flicking on the TV.

When sleep calls, ascend the quirky spiral stairs and head into the shower room which is separated from the bedroom by a Cor-ten steel divider, wash off the day’s adventures under the rainfall shower before sloping off to sleep in the sumptuous king-size bed.

In the morning, begin your exploration of the 6 acres of land that encompass The Water Tower, keen ramblers can also explore the nearby Poulter Country Park which joins The Archaeological Way or head into the Peak District National Park for more challenging trails leading to the summits of peaks like Bleaklow and Black Hill for breath-taking panoramas across the English countryside.

Alternatively, head into the heart of Bolsover where you can explore the fairy-tale Bolsover Castle or travel in the opposite direction to reach Creswell Crags where you can immerse yourself in the past with the help of Britain's only Ice Age cave art.

Sherwood Forest is easily accessible by car and offers an array of walks, a nature reserve and the legendary origins of Robin Hood, pay a visit to the Major Oak in the heart of the dense woodland or swing through the tree tops at Go Ape in Sherwood Pines.

Make cherished memories at The Tower.
