About Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages

Set in 20 acres of peaceful Peak District countryside, Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages are eight beautiful cottages positioned around a tranquil courtyard. They have been lovingly converted from traditional stone farm buildings, preserving their original character yet fitted out for today’s lifestyle. It is the perfect place for families, groups and dogs alike!

Bolehill Farm is a former working farm, just 2 miles from the centre of the lovely town of Bakewell and positioned opposite the family dairy farm. We are perfectly located to explore the local area, whether you want to visit Chatsworth House or Haddon Hall, or go cycling on the Monsal, Tissington or High Peak Trail – there is something here for the whole family.

Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages is a small family business, run by Dan and Fay, who own the farm and live on site. They are here to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible, from making the booking 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 is anything you would like or need advice about, please just ask.

We love your pets!

Well-behaved dogs are welcome in ALL Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages. Our dog friendly environment and the beautiful surrounding countryside are everything a dog could need for that home-from-home feel.  The cottages are set in extensive grounds of open fields and woodland, meaning lots of land for your dog to enjoy and walks right from the door. We also have a specially set aside dog paddock for them to explore and run in, as well as a dog wash area. We even provide a dog welcome basket, which includes a dog bed, towels, bowls and a few treats!

Dogs are charged at £5 per cottage per day – in line with the recommended dog guidelines on our individual cottage pages.  For clarity, this is a flat charge – there is no additional charge for multiple dogs per cottage. We welcome Guide dogs, Hearing dogs and Assistance dogs free of charge.

Our Accommodation

Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages are tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Each has a fully-equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher, a TV, Wifi access, and an outside seating area. All linen is provided, including towels.

We have four cottages that sleep up to 2 people, three that sleep up to 4 people, and one that sleeps up to 5 people. Our cottages are available all year round with flexible arrival and departure dates (minimum 2 night stay). Each cottage can be booked individually or in groups for larger gatherings.

In addition, we have a fun-packed games room with pool table, table tennis, table football and lots more – whether this is for the young ones, or the young at heart!

For larger groups, Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages also offer a newly-refurbished group dining area for booking at no extra charge. This has seating for up to 24 people (4 tables with 24 chairs which can be organised in different ways to suit your group). There is also a fully-equipped kitchen that comes with booking the group dining area, complete with a 6-zone induction hob and wide 1100cm farmhouse style oven, as well as a fridge-freezer, microwave and dishwasher, along with smaller items such as kettles, toasters, crockery and utensils. We allow only one group to use this space at any one period so as not to be stepping on toes! That said, it does need to be booked in advance. Please do get in touch prior to booking if it is something you are interested in.
