Things To Do in Birchover
Clinging to a hillside in the Peak District village of Birchover, with the River Derwent flowing through unspoiled landscapes right on your doorstep.
Get away from the noise, fumes and stress of the big city with a unique country break, and take your faithful canine companion with you for the ride.
Pub 500 yards away, shop and restaurant 1 mile. Take a doggie walk down to Main Street in the village, and try either of the dog friendly pubs while you plan your day out.
Birchover is associated with druids, as one of the pubs will testify, and you and pooch can explore the Hidden Druids Caves just to the west of the village itself.
From the woods where the caves are hidden, cross over The Mires and look for Doll Tor (or Six Stones), another mystical local landmark, or follow the path down to the Ivy Bar Brook, across the B5056.
Just up the hill is another bronze age landmark, the Stone Circle with four standing stones in a farmer’s field. This area is Stanton Moor, famous for its ancient landmarks, and you and your furry friend might also enjoy Earl Grey Tower, which is slightly more modern and has some lovely walking paths in the woods around it.
For more earthly delights, a short drive north west up the A6 takes you to Bakewell, the jewel of this part of the Peak District National Park.
Stop off at the dog friendly pubs, cafes and eateries, and sample the town’s world famous pudding, not forgetting to give pooch a taste.
To the south east is the major Derbyshire town of Matlock, which has everything you’ll need for while you’re away, and the charming resort town of Matlock Bath, a genteel 19th Century spa town.
For a more dramatic morning or afternoon, try the cable car ride up to the stunning Heights of Abraham.
Rock Cottage is a holiday home with a difference. With its steep, terraced garden and hillside location, there are very few cottages like it anywhere in England.
Enjoy breakfast on your private patio, with the Peaks and the Derwent Valley stretching out before you. Stroll into the village and enjoy one of the dog friendly pubs, then head off into the mystical ancient woodlands which surround the area.
Enjoy the real peace and quiet of the quiet paths and riverbank walks in the area, which your four legged friend will love exploring.
Take a short drive into the National Park, and spend some quality time in Bakewell, or head down the Derwent into Matlock and Matlock Spa. Come home to your own Peak District paradise in the evening
