Eagle Cottage is a lovely cottage in a quiet little lane just down from the centre of Birchover which is a super village in the Peak District hills between Bakewell and Matlock. The cottage's cosy lounge with its log burning stove, attractive dining area, well equipped kitchen and comfortable bedrooms with crisp linen and fluffy towels make it a great holiday retreat.
Birchover is just as brilliant with its 'sleepy cat on a stone wall' atmosphere, Red Lion pub and Druid Inn restaurant. Heather clad Stanton Moor with the Kings Stone and Nine Ladies Stone Circle is just above the village. Cratcliff Rocks, Robin Hood's Stride and the Hermits Cave are down in the valley. The Limestone Way setting out across the wonderful Peak District hills runs right past the village.
With walks a plenty you may decide to while away your days in and around Birchover. But remember that Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall, the Derwent Valley Dams and all the Peak District's other famous attractions are close at hand. Alternatively take the little-uns to Gulliver's Kingdom, treat the older-ones to white water adventures at Carsington Water and perhaps all of you can revel in nostalgia on Crich's wonderful tramway. In complete contrast drop to 'Oblivion' at Alton Towers.
