We had a warm welcome from the owner who showed us round this lovely cottage. The furnishing are all excellent quality as are all the utensils and crockery in the kitchen. There is a nice conservatory looking out into a private garden. Spotlessly clean and within an easy walking distance to Bolsover Castle which we would recommend. Also, only 5 miles from the Airavana flight simulator experience, something else we highly recommend.

We had disappointing weather but found the cottage so comfortable and well equipped that staying indoors was not an issue..

The cottage is lovely and spacious and the furnishings and contents are of a high quality.. The kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge and freezer. A large conservatory leads onto a lovely garden with lots of bird feeders that entice plenty of different varieties of birds. We even saw a hedgehog and a squirrel. There is plenty to do around the area and Bolsover is a small town but has most things you need. There are plenty of supermarkets a short distance away and some lovely pubs not too far away. The hosts are friendly and helpful. I would recommend this cottage as it is home from home with plenty of space and everything you need to enjoy your holiday.

This property is the in the perfect location to explore the beautiful Peak District! It is well equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine etc and has a beautiful garden and is close to some lovely dog walks. It is also within walking distance to shops, take aways, restaurants and pubs and Bolsover Castle. The property has everything you need and the owners kindly leave wine, milk, coffee and tea, which is really appreciated after the journey there. The shower is great and doubles as a Steam Room, so enhances the relaxing break. It is a real home from home and highly recommended.
Mrs Drage

It was a very spacious property with a large secure garden.. All furnishings are of a very good standard. It is worth noting that the property does NOT have a barbecue.

Fantastic accommodation, excellent value.. We loved the high quality finish and privacy that the property offered. We have already rebooked as there is more we want to do in the area. We really enjoyed relaxing in the property, lovely garden and spacious living areas. Can't fault it in the slightest. Simply brilliant.

For a holiday cottage that accepts dogs, this is not only the best we have stayed at but far exceeded our expectations.. The cottage is immaculate and the garden exceptional. We particularly loved the vast variety of birds and also the delightful hedgehogs that visited the garden each evening. The owners are very friendly and most considerate to guests.

Millers Cottage was a delight.. The facilities provided were of exceptionally high standard and far beyond what we had expected. Longe and bedroom were extremely comfortable and the conservatory provided a wonderful place to sit and watch the wildlife activity in the private and peaceful garden. By far one of the best self catering cottages we have stayed in.

Mr Alflatt
July 2015
This cottage was excellent, there was everything you needed and more. We used the cottage as a base to visit Derbyshire, but if you just wanted to stay in during the day, there is everything you could possibly want. The conservatory was lovely to sit in and read. The shower was amazing, having so many settings, I wanted to stay in there all day! I can't recommend this cottage highly enough. I would certainly recommend it to anyone and would like to go again next year!

My Husband and I had a lovely week in Millers Retreat. We were made so welcome by David and Beverley. The Cottage is immaculately clean and very comfortable. It is home from home in every way. The sun room is delightful and we enjoyed every morning watching the birds at the feeders. They even have binoculars and a bird book. The shower is a luxury you can sit down in it! You can have your very own steam room and plenty of hot water. We were lucky enough to have some sunshine and had the pleasure of sitting outside in the lovely garden. It is in a great location only 5 minutes walk to all the shops, restaurants and pubs. Bolsover Castle is a great place to visit and had a very good event when we were there. Nice little coffee shop too. Wetherspoons is a good pub. The food is actually pretty good for a chain and the drinks are cheap. We would highly recommend a stay at Millers Retreat.
Mr French
July 2014
Delightfully relaxing. Good base for exploring. Accommodating and genial hosts. Excellent accommodation. Plenty of local areas for dog walking. This holiday wouldn't have worked if the dogs had been stressed, but they weren't as the garden area was a lovely retreat haven for them and they enjoyed their interaction with the hosts own dog. Also enjoyed the bird watching sessions and benefited from the host's bird knowledge base.
Mrs Gibson
July 2014
The cottage was really lovely and the garden was brilliant for our little dog because he was very safe. The garden was full of birds all day long. The owners were very good and friendly. Would recommend it. Overall, smashing.
Mrs Baker

Miss Greening
June 2014
The cottage was very modern and it was furnished and decorated to a very high standard - I would happily recommend to friends or family. We have stayed in several dog friendly holiday cottages now across England Wales and I have to say this is one of the best. There are plenty of places to go in the surrounding area including Chatsworth Bakewell. We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay and so did our dog!!!
Mr Croker
May 2014
The best cottage we have stayed in - much bigger than we expected. It was immaculate with all mod cons. We will be going back for another visit.
Mrs Short
May 2014
The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable; everything was of a high standard. The new addition of the conservatory overlooking the garden, with all the birds was delightful. The location of the cottage is very good with only a five minute walk to all of the shops and pubs and the wonderful Bolsover Castle. It is less than an hour's drive to get you into the Peak District for walking. Great for a relaxing or an adventurous holiday.
Mr Tahir
May 2014
The beauty of the countryside and the friendliness of the people of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Lots of things to see and do or alternatively enjoy lazing around the home. Millers Retreat provided a cosy home away from home and its Sun Room that opens up to the garden and many varieties of birds is a joy. The hosts are friendly.
Mrs Wallwork

We have stayed at this property 4 times now as it is such a delightful place and we were thrilled to find it better than ever on our latest visit. There has now been a beautiful sun-room added which is superb for watching all the bird life in the garden or just relaxing. I can't fault this property, we have stayed in a few holiday cottages over the years (being senior citizens now) and this is the only one we have ever returned to. Excellent value.
Malcolm Stevens
July 2013
Miller's Retreat is by far the best equiped, and most enjoyable cottage we have stayed in. The accommodation was superb, the fixtures and fittings excellent and the garen somewhere we felt very happy to be in. Although we didn't get to meet the Lady of the House, we found the Man of the House exremely friendly and helpful all of whic added to the enjoyment of staing in this charming cottage. Its easy access to the countryside enabled us to appreciate the beauty of the Peak District.

We stayed here in March. This was our 2nd stay at Millers Retreat. The owners always make such an effort - nothing is too much trouble for them. The cottage itself is the best holiday cottage we have ever rented. Wonderful kitchen with all mod cons -3 tvs!!! Shower experience out of this world! Comfortable living area with lots of books & puzzles & games to enjoy, Beautiful bedroom large bedroom and a lovely warm cottage. The garden was perfect for our doggies and we could watch all the birds on the feeders from the large patio windows. We enjoy walking and there is so much to do in the area. Cresswell Crags, just down the road, is a delight. Poulter Country park, Teversal trails and many more walks close by. Thoroughly recommend Millers Retreat and hope we can visit here for many more years.

Owners very welcoming together with milk and wine in fridge etc. Very clean, warm and comfortable accommodation with pleasant garden. Amazing shower! Would definitely go again. Located close to Bolsover which had all the amedities we needed but not touristy. Close to Hardwick Hall and Chesterfield and not far to Bakewell and Chatsworth. Lovely countryside and scenery.

We had a lovely holiday in this cottage. The cottage was the best we have stayed in. It was clean, spacious, very well equiped with everything you could possibly need. The owners were very welcoming and friendly, but never intrusive. We took a young baby with us (4 months) and the cottage was ideal. Plenty of space for travel cot in the main bedroom. We picked the location as it was near the Sherwood Forest and enjoyed walking around this area. Found quite a few places we could visit and walk with a pram. I would definately recommend this cottage to others.
Mrs Pearson
December 2011
Lovely, comfortable cottage. Very warm - heating excellent for a November/December stay of 3 weeks. Owners were lovely, hospitable, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Regular changes of sheets and towels. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - Millers Retreat is close to many attractions so ideally situated for sight-seeing.

We chose this property as it was convenient for visiting our son who was celebrating his 40th birthday that week. It was really wonderful with lots of little extra touches such as a box of tissues in each room and binoculars supplied to watch the varied birdlife in the delightful garden. The owners are really helpful and friendly, even bringing us some chopsticks and warming trays when hearing we were having our son and daughter in law over for chinese take-away. The cottage is in the town of Bolsover with its castle and is in easy reach of the M1. We had an excellent week there and would recommend it to anyone at any time of year.
Mr Boardman

Millers Retreat is an excellent cottage. More than we could have hoped for. We only stayed for one week but would have loved to have stayed for a month. Its a beautiful cottage, there is nothing negative to say about it and the owners were really nice and friendly.We loved the garden with all the birds visiting. We were within a couple of minutes walking distance of the local shops and the castle which was really worth a visit. We could buy everything we needed locally. We need not have left the location at all and some days we didn't go too far. We would love to go back for another visit and I hope that we will soon. All in all one the best holidays that we have had.
Mrs Taylor

The cottage was excellent, furnished fitted out to a high standard. The owners were very pleasant, sociable people and made us feel welcome.
