  • “Fantastic stay”
    Lovely cottage in a great location. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable, it had everything we needed. We went with a baby and 2 dogs and had a great stay. The garden was amazing for the dogs, fenced in and secure. A place to return to. Highly recommend for comfort, cleanliness and location.

The property

This lovely detached house sits in the centre of the village of Barrow Hill.

This is an ideal property for a family holiday.

The dining room at The Old Grocery was once the village grocery store supplying the village with all essential provisions.

Nowadays the room is just perfect for languorous dinners.

The cosy sitting room, with its lovely view of the garden and cosy living flame gas fire, provides lots of space for guests to relax following another exciting day exploring this area.

The three bedrooms offer flexible accommodation whatever the requirements.

Outside the large lawned garden offers an ideal space for the children to run off the last of their energy, or for dining alfresco on a summer's evening.

Children will also enjoy the playing field and children's playground in the village which are only a minute's walk away.

The village is close to the beautiful Chesterfield Canal with great walking on the towpath known as The Cuckoo Way.

The Trans-Pennine Trail is also close by and is just the ticket for walkers and cyclists.

Guests can look out for the brass monkey on The Clocktower and it was said that its tail pointed upwards when the Staveley Coal and Iron Company was in profit, and downwards if it made a loss!

There are lots of good local walks from the doorstep and with easy access to the Peak District, walkers will be spoilt for choice.

Chesterfield really is a gateway for exploring Derbyshire and the glorious Peak District.

Whether you’d like to visit stately homes, which the county has more than its fair share of, or castles, including the fairytale mansion of Bolsover Castle, this area has it all.

It's not all about the superb adventure playground of Britain's first National Park, or the myriad of pretty villages scattered about, or the iconic Chatsworth House and Estate, it is the huge and diverse variety on offer here to suit everybody whatever their age.

This is a wonderful holiday property.

About the location

BARROW HILL

Chesterfield 5.5 miles; Worksop 12 miles; Sheffield 14 miles.

Barrow Hill was once part of a medieval deer park belonging to the Lords of the Manor of Staveley and beneath this park the land was rich in iron and coal. Consequently these minerals were mined. Nowadays the village is home to The Roundhouse, the last surviving operational roundhouse engine shed in Great Britain. Throughout the year there are galas featuring working steam and diesel trains. The Chesterfield Canal meanders through this area and is widely recognised as one of the most beautiful and varied waterways in England and the Trans-Pennine Trail is close by and is perfect for cyclists and walkers alike. Also within an easy drive you can reach the delights of the Peak District, visit Hardwick Hall, an Elizabethan country house, explore Clumber Park or Cresswell Crags, or spend time discovering the market town of Chesterfield with its famous crooked spire.
