With spectacular views over Derbyshire, the fairy-tale Stuart mansion, Bolsover Castle, was designed to entertain and impress. Its reputation for revelry lives on as we now entertain you and your family. Wander the lavish rooms of the Little Castle, explore the romantic ruined terrace range, and delight in the views from the wall walk. Start your visit in the exhibition in the Riding House then run wild in extensive grounds (and fun play area).

We had a bit of a problem getting a park for our motorhome but eventually did. We were very impressed with the castle and how well kept it is. Spent quite a bit of time here.

Beautiful and stunning landscape. Amazing place where spend a day. In particular if there is the Atkinson Action Horses team displaying the Cavendish's horses movements. Simply amazing!
