  • 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.

Located only a mile from Chesterfield, guests are never far away from a wide selection of eateries and shops. A day spent bargain hunting at Chesterfield Market is a must, and the famous crooked church spire is well worth a visit. A short drive west will bring you to the sprawling Peak District National Park where, along with the many walks and cycle paths, historic Chatsworth House can be visited.

A small porch with handy boot racks and coat hooks welcome you into this property and into the heart of this spacious house into the games room and guide you through an arched opening into the spacious sitting room. With a cosy log burning stove, wooden floors, occasional rugs and comfortable sofas, this is a fantastic family room with a giant wide screen tv. The kitchen features cream units, a large window, good sized breakfast table and is fully equipped for your stay. Family meals can be enjoyed in the formal dining room with another log burning stove, which overlooks the garden to one side and the private indoor swimming pool through lockable French windows to the other. This offers the perfect opportunity to relax with a few lengths after a long day of walking, or enjoy some time in the water with the children. Also on this floor is a utility room, shower room and further shower area by the pool, both with toilets.

Upstairs you will find the four bedrooms, which includes a spacious master with a king sized double bed and family bathroom with a roll top bath and a large walk in shower cubicle, wash basin and toilet. There are two further double bedrooms and a fourth with four single beds – an ideal dormitory for children. A further family bathroom with a bath, wash basin and toilet completes this floor.

Outside you will find various areas on which to sit and enjoy some sun or a tasty BBQ and why not enjoy the outdoor bar area.  There is also access to a bright modern toilet room from the outside area and plenty of off road parking.

The plus points are the location and the swimming pool, the negatives the cottage would benefit from a good clean and de-clutter. The second bathroom would benefit from a shower rather than having to use the shower off the utility room (no toilet).

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.

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.

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.
