It has a separate kitchen with dining table too. One bedroom has an en-suite shower/WC and then there is the main bathroom with bath, shower over the bath...

Wonderful place; my family and I had a great time. For me everything was great and perfect! The pub next door and Druid's Inn restaurant were excellent. The countryside all around is great. The only request for possible additions for the future comes from my sons who missed the sports channels in the TV! My wife however thought that it...

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.
