We’re conserving the fragile ruins of the Old Hall. At the moment, our experts are removing harmful plants, repairing the masonry and working on the historic plasterwork. Most of the work will be done by hand without the use of large machinery. Conservation in action workshops are taking place throughout the project, and our visitors and holiday cottage guests are very welcome to join in and learn more about our vital work.

We had everything we needed and the surroundings were beautiful. It was really lovely having the old hall in the back garden and the new hall opposite!

Excellent communication from Graham. The VIP tickets to Bolsover Castle were the icing on the cake. Will definitely stay there again.
