About the neighbourhood
Birchover is a small, pretty and quiet village, surrounded by beautiful countryside. It features two excellent pubs, both serving a varied menu of delicious food and some good local beers. There are a number of walks from the doorstep - a circular walk up to Nine Ladies stone circle, a Bronze Age monument on Stanton Moor; a walk across the fields to the fascinating rocky outcrop of Robin Hood's Stride; or a stroll across the fields to Winster, one of our nearest neighbouring villages. If it gets wet and muddy we have a stone outhouse outside the front door where you can securely store muddy boots and bicycles. Finally, for the children (or children at heart) Alton Towers theme park is only 25 miles (40km) away.
How to get there
Travel by air: the two nearest airports are East Midlands and Manchester. Travel by car: travelling north from Matlock on the A6, turn left onto the B5057 to Winster. Turn right onto the B5056 until the right turn marked 'Birchover'. Lion Cottage is on the left hand side of the main street, before the Red Lion pub. Travelling south from Bakewell on the A6, turn right onto the B5056 until the left turn marked 'Birchover'. Travel by train: the nearest station is Matlock. Take the 172 bus to Birchover.
