Holmebrook Valley Country Park lake


A large country park on the outskirts of Chesterfield with a beautiful lake, which is home to ducks, swans, coots and Canadian geese, with fishing sites around it.

There are play areas for children, cycle paths and footpaths through and around the park popular with dog walkers and cyclists, linking with the other cycle routes around Chesterfield. It has an orienteering route as well as a popular mountain bike course.

You will find picnic tables at the Linacre road car park and also at the lake and football pitches.

The northern end of the park is elevated and offers spectacular views over Chesterfield to Hardwick Hall and Bolsover Castle and on towards Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. The high ground is great for kite flying and popular with model plane enthusiasts.

The park offers a peaceful haven with the opportunity to see wild flowers and birdlife.

Pay a visit to the Cafe where you will find home-made food served Monday to Thursday and Saturday & Sunday.
