Located a short drive up into the hills from Bakewell, giving stunning views around the countryside you'll find Bolehill Farm Cottages. The well-presented complex comprises 8 cottages of varying sizes that are converted barns. We stayed for 4 nights during the summer hols and were impressed. Really good that they allowed short breaks in peak season and the cottages have... More

We had a brilliant stay at bolehill farm. It has everything you could need, wonderful countryside and really friendly owners! The cottage was very well equipped and very cosy. Perfect venue for dog owners and there aren't too many of those around!

We spent five days here in 'Shippon' cottage, which has one drawback, in that there is someone above, who sometimes forgot we were below, and were quite noisy. The owners are pleasant and helpful, the gardens and paddocks are great for children and dogs, and the area is as good as Derbyshire gets, with easy access to all the local... More

Thank you for your valuable feedback. So glad that in general you enjoyed your stay. Sorry to hear that the guests in the accommodation above were noisy. We have installed two layers of thick sound absorbent matting, the thickest underlay we could buy and a thick carpet to try and minimise this kind of problem. We will now monitor this... More

Been to Bolehill cottages a few times over the years and the current owners have continued to develop and upgrade the accommodation. Chris and Shirley are excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful. The place is always very clean and grounds well kept. We love the peace and quiet you get by being away from Bakewell, but you are still only... More

My wife son and his girlfriend stayed here at the beginning of June with our Cockers spaniel Tilly, this was the first week of my retirement from the prison service and what a way to start. Our cottage was clean and comfortable and on the first night we walked across the filed to the Lathkil hotel and even getting caught... More

What a lovely place to stay. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday and so did our 2 dogs. Long walks taking in the scenery then stopping off for something tasty to eat in one of the many pubs was heaven. Bolehill Farm was ideally situated just a few minutes in car from Bakewell. We found the cottages very clean... More

Beautiful location in the middle of countryside but only 10 minutes from the centre of Bakewell. The cottage was well fitted out and beautifully clean for our arrival. We were surrounded by flowering baskets and troughs and the whole site was a picture. There were a couple of lovely walks from the cottage. The town of Bakewell is a must... More

l have just enjoyed my third stay at Bolehill, l stayed in Honeysuckle Cottage and previously in Bluebell. The standards of cleanliness and comfort are high (the beds are so comfy) and the location is just idyllic. Chris and Shirley are lovely hosts and always happy to advise or help if necessary. Looking forward to my fourth trip in October!!!

We were Shirley and Chris' first guests when they took over Bolehill Farm almost eleven years ago. We have been back a number of times because we know their high standards never fall. The cottages are very clean and as well equipped.as home. Shirley and Chris, and of course Smudge and Blue, are very friendly and only too willing to... More

Good grief the 11 years have gone quickly. Well I remember your arrival that day 11 years ago. Although we had rehearsed a 100 times what to do and say when guests arrived, of course it is totally different when the first guest arrives. Obviously we didn't 'fluf our lines' too badly and you were very understanding. Amazingly we still... More

My wife and I have just returned from a week’s stay in Honeysuckle Cottage. The cottage was well equipped with everything you would need. Chris, Shirley, Blue and Smudge are very friendly and helpful. They have plenty of information about the area available in the cottage booklet and the leisure room. Excellent value for money.
