Persimmon Homes


This is a town with a national landmark as its claim to fame. Bolsover Castle dominates the skyline and is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. The town is perfectly located for easy access to Sheffield, Nottingham and Derby – all more or less the same distance away and this makes Bolsover an ideal place to set up a new home if you need to commute, especially with the M1 nearby too. The nearest train station is at Chesterfield but that’s only 5 miles away so it’s a good alternative to driving. Derbyshire has a share of the Peak District too, so you’ll have that fabulous landmark on the horizon too. The town itself has plenty of local facilities and because the castle puts it on the tourist map, you will benefit from all the independent shops, twice-weekly market, cafés and restaurants too. It’s a cheerful, thriving place to live


Bolsover Castle is the jewel in the crown for this area with views for miles and family events throughout the year. The old part of the town is full of character too. Also nearby are Chatsworth House, Hardwick Hall and Sutton Scarsdale Hall.


Derbyshire enjoys having a foot in the Peak District. This national park rises just west of Chesterfield and so is within easy reach of Bolsover. 77% of this county is classified as rural and so you’ll have plenty of opportunities for days out with the family.


Bolsover has a wide range of independent shops in its town centre, and its supermarkets include a Morrisons and a Co-op. The market is a great asset too for fresh local produce and a good browse. There’s a choice of schools, sports and leisure facilities, and good local transport links, including the M1 which you can join at Junction 29A.
