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. Have exciting times exploring nearby Stanton Moor with the Kings Stone and Nine Ladies Stone Circle, Cratcliff Rocks, Robin Hood's Stride and the Hermits Cave. The Limestone Way and numerous other footpaths will take you out across the wonderful Peak District hills.
But if your legs get tired there are lots of other places you might fancy visiting like Caudwell's Mill Craft Centre, Matlock Bath's cable cars, the National Tramway Museum and Peak Rail's steam trains. It's incredible that you are in the midst of beautiful scenery yet all these attractions and famous places like Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and Bakewell market town are just a few minutes' drive away.

"We have just arrived home from a week in Swallows Nest in Birchover. We'd like to recommend this 'cottage'. We had a warm welcome from Andrew and Swallows Nest is comfortable and very well equipped. The surrounding countryside is beautiful. We had a restful and enjoyable holiday and would recommend 'Swallows Nest' to others. Thank you."

"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."
