  • Set in its own large grounds, perfect for summer BBQs outside
  • Private indoor heated swimming pool
Property code: PK880

This property is an impressively spacious house with its own private indoor heated swimming pool, games room and large gardens. Located just a mile from the amenities and attractions of Chesterfield.

It would be a downright shame to use this house for anything other than a party. With stunning rooms, an indoor swimming pool, and tons of extra features like a pool table and jukebox, this could be a magnificent venue for that special family occasion coming up. Plus, with the attractions of Chesterfield and the Peak District close by, there'll be amusements enough to keep you in holiday memories for years.

With four bedrooms sleeping 10 guests, the property itself is a spacious detached house, set in rolling grounds with several areas to sit and enjoy a BBQ, a “friendly” game of football or rounders, or just to lounge in the country air. Inside, a cosy porch welcomes you and then it's on to the living area, a large and light-filled space with two distinct spaces. First, the games room is the heart of the house — hang out around the jukebox or challenge your relatives to a duel at the pool table. Then the room connects to a spacious, comfortable sitting room, complete with wood burner and TV for extra cosy evenings. The kitchen is an elegant room designed for proper sit-down meals and overlooks the swimming pool through a pair of French doors. Take a leisurely swim in the morning or watch the kids splashing around. When you've finally exhausted the day, head upstairs to your chosen bedroom. A king-size master offers a spacious, stylish retreat from the fun and games of the house, with its own en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath. And with two further doubles and a dorm-style room with four single beds, everyone will find something to suit them.

  • 4 bedrooms: 1 king, 2 doubles, 1 bedroom with 4 single beds
  • 2 upstairs bathrooms
  • 2 downstairs bathrooms
  • Additional toilet accessed from outside
  • Internet access
  • 2 Woodburners
  • Off road parking
  • Private indoor heated swimming pool with lockable French doors
  • Fridge Freezer, dishwasher
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave
  • Washing machine, tumble dryer
  • 2 high chairs, 1 cot and 1 travel cot available
  • TV/DVD
  • Pool table and Juke box
  • BBQ and garden furniture
  • Regret no pets
  • Electric car charging point

The party continues with the location of this property. It's situated just a mile from the historic centre of the lively market town of Chesterfield, where you can enjoy independent shops, restaurants, galleries, or a visit to the famous crooked spire. Once you've had your fill of town life, head west 7 miles and you'll arrive at the edge of the Peak District National Park, where you can adventure in whatever way suits your team — cycling, riding, boating, climbing, it's all here. Or, head further into the park to Bakewell, home of the famous Bakewell tart and also to several historic buildings. Roam about the grounds of Chatsworth House and pretend you're landed gentry, or explore the medieval manor of Haddon Hall, with its stunning Elizabethan gardens and rugged surrounding views of the peaks.

The cottage is beautiful, well equipped with everything you could want or need etc but I do feel that the shower room off the utility room would be better if changed to a toilet, as for such a big house the only other downstairs wc is in the swimming pool area or outside of the property. also the burgundy bathroom suite without a shower is the onlyRead more other let down for what is otherwise a lovely modern property.

We all felt very much at home here, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, nice warm indoor pool that we used a lot, shops not too far away and a good pub within walking distance.

An ideal house for a large family gathering, we were a party of 6 adults and 4 children and we all had a great time. Lots of space for us all to spread out in the lounge and a good sized dining room for our family meals.

We were made very welcome by the owner but shan't be returning. The property needs a thorough clean and some furnishings (stained cushions, torn shower curtains) replaced. We all loved the warm pool, and were pleased to see so many children's toys / inflatables available. The location of the property is good, lots of things to see and do.

The hosts were extra helpful and really couldnt do enough for us. The house had everything we needed and more. Beautiful gardens too. The only suggestion I would make is that the cleaners should do a more thorough job, and a good clear out of bits and pieces would help.

We had a wonderful time with the family for my mums 70th. Everyone aged 8months to 83 loved the house. The pool is fantastic. Lovely and warm, great size and lots of toys. Rob is friendly and welcoming and even posted my dad an item that he left behind. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Excellent property for a large family group. Warm private swimming pool was the huge focus for the stay but children also enjoyed the safe and secure grounds. The property was quirky in some ways; Eg. no downstairs toilet in the main part of the house (but one outside and another in the "wet" pool area). Eg. incredibly well equipped kitchen but quiRead morete cramped to work in with very "tired" units. Eg "Rawhide" bed!! However, pleased with booking! Hide

Excellent accommodation and the pool is a great bonus. The grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed it, especially as the pool was deep enough (1.80m) for them to do all the snorkelling they were trying out. Plenty of space for all the family in the main room and for eating in the dining room.

Rural location, but close to everything you might need, Access to the peaks a bonus, the pool is well heated and great for all ages, the whole house works well with lots of people, and surprisingly the pool table was a great source of entertainment, loved it

We chose this property for a family get together as we are scattered across the uk. We looked for a property with an indoor pool as we all know that the English weather cannot be relied upon - we were not disappointed and the pool was used and enjoyed every single day. Everyone enjoyed their stay and had a brilliant holiday.
