I can imagine in its heyday it was totally stunning. Now a ruin but if you like taking photographs of great architecture then you've hit the jackpot here. Alas, that is the only good point. No visitor centre. No refreshments ie cafe or similar All...More

I see this beautiful structure on a regular basis, and I long for English Heritage to stabile the brickwork so that it will be safe to look around. I go up to the house now and again to check for progress and access; but so...More

Absolutely gorgeous surroundings and view. Clean, well kept and a historical beauty. Great for an afternoon out and a walk around. Small car park.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Would have been a magnificent house in its day. Free to visit

I followed the Derbyshire council listed walk from Bolsover Castle to Sutton Scarsdale hall. The walk is one to be avoided, overgrown, poorly signed and inaccurate instructions, but the hall itself is worth a visit. Fenced off and awaiting renovation, but gives a feeling of...More

You make you way down a lane in a quiet village and suddenly come across an elegant but roofless mansion on the top of a hill looking over to Bolsover.

English Heritage property. Free to park and visit. No other facilities at all. Cracking view of Bolsover castle across the valley, and the hall itself very interesting. Arkwright family graves in the next door church yard interesting too. Unfortunately the building is currently dangerous and...More
