Advice on Cottage Holidays in Bolsover
From the comfort and convenience of your holiday home, venture forth to explore the delights of Bolsover. Sitting on the crest of a hill stands a medieval fortress, quite unique in its structure as it remains complete. The Little Castle is a mock medieval ruin which appears to have been built for ornamental purposes rather than a means of defence. It later became a mansion for elegant living. The artwork throughout is impeccable and the castle is in very good shape for its age. The building appears to crumble in slow motion, its decline is incredibly slow, only the moon and sun witness its deterioration. The views from the windows are amazing; you can see for miles in every direction. Take in that scenery, it is so breath-taking and the trees…you cannot help but admire them for having seen the centuries blow past the many who have occupied this noble stronghold. This is proof that the past is external, it is all around us. Follow the very helpful audio guide, packed with interesting information about Bolsover. There are no distinctive ropes or barriers around exhibits so you can sit, touch and enjoy all the reproduction furniture. There is also a children’s play area and café which is clearly a modern- day addition, the furnishings are much too 21st century to have existed in the Middle Ages! To thoroughly appreciate everything this castle has to offer, you should factor in a good three to four hours. There is a fair amount of walking for which the eyes will be greatly rewarded.

The moment you step into the Antique Centre, you leave the modern world behind. Now, for a little while you will see everything through the eyes of old man time. Such a wonderful hotch-potch of designs and cultures throughout the ages which keep presenting themselves, one after the other. The mind cannot help but imagine those hands which created such art. They must have belonged to someone warm and kind to create something so beautiful. You can almost feel that connection with those artists who lived, loved and created so many moons ago.
