Swallows Nest is an absolutely classy little holiday retreat close to the centre of the picturesque and peaceful Peak District village of Birchover. This is just a lovely little cottage with its picture window opening onto the patio and extensive garden, beautifully furnished and decorated lounge, quality well equipped kitchen and luxurious bedroom with sparking en-suite shower room.
Birchover takes some beating too! Stroll up the lane to the Red Lion pub renowned for its great food. Wander a little further into the village to the Druid Inn restaurant for a sumptuous meal.

"Hello. My wife and I have just spent a very enjoyable holiday at Swallows Nest (ref: SWNB) in Birchover. The owner, Andrew was very helpful as due to road closures getting to Birchover he 'rescued us'. That did not deter anything from our holiday as we found the best routes to use. The cottage is excellent in every way. Nothing to complain about at all. Very peaceful, clean, spacious and comfortable. We would recommend Swallows Nest to anyone who wants a peaceful location and excellent facilities. Thank you."
