About Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages

Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages – Big Views

Bolehill Farm is a former working farm, just 2 miles from the centre of the lovely town of Bakewell but set in the most stunning Peak District countryside.

Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages is a small family business, run by Dan and Fay, who own the farm and live on site. They are there to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible, from making the initial booking right through to the end of your stay.

Fay grew up on the dairy farm opposite Bolehill Farm so she knows this part of the Peak District inside out, and both Dan and Fay are always happy to help you make the most of your stay. If there’s anything you’d like advice about, please just ask.

Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages are perfectly located to explore the local area, whether you want to visit the beautiful country estates of Chatsworth House or Haddon Hall, or go cycling on the Monsal, Tissington or High Peak Trails. There’s something here for the whole family!
