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 including an impressive outdoor bar where you can sit and enjoy some sun or a tasty BBQ.  There is also access to a bright modern toilet room from the outside area and plenty of off road parking.

The perfect base for a group get together in a lovely location. The addition of a pool, and its own 'pub' is just a delight. The onsite owner Rob is both unintrusive but most friendly and helpful with all matters, particularly the supply and installation of beers in the bar.

Me and some friends stayed at Southwood Chase for a much needed getaway and we couldnt fault the experience at all. The pool was perfect for us and the outdoor bar was a great addition to the property. I have to say the owner, Rob, was amazing throughout the whole week and we couldnt have asked for a better host. Definitely recommend staying here.

The plus points are the location and the swimming pool, the negatives the cottage would benefit from a good clean and de-clutter.
