This place is magical, lots of caves to explore and the views are just amazing! Some tricky bits to climb up for adventurous people which is really fun. Definitely take a torch some parts of the caves are quite dark!

I can't describe the fun I had here but I'll try! At 31 years old and quiet possibly the grumpiest I've been in my life I didn't think I'd be able to have fun like this with such simple things. Cave, rocks, holes and views! It's all I needed. The views from the top are great and the walk up... More

Free. Entry behind the Druid Inn, amazing rocks which are partly natural and partly carved by man. A man lived a hermit-like existence here and carved out the rocks. Lots of interesting easy climbing and caving. Also lots of shear drops, so not suitable for very small children.

This is a very interesting place, there are carved steps and caves all over the place, even seats carved into the stone, be careful though, there are some steep drops, and if you have children, keep hold of their hands

If you are in the area, then check this place out, park up out the pub and walk around the back of the building and you will see the start of a trail leading up to the rocks. Really amazing bit of history to explore, wont spoil it for everyone, but you need to be able bodied and like heights.

Great views, loads of easy climbing. If you don't fancy a picnic but a drink instead The Red Lion in Birchover is a great place for a drink and also food, children are welcome.

Spent ages looking at places suggested by TripAdvisor in Birchover before finding that this site, called Rowtor Rocks, is called by TripAdvisor Druids Caves.....! Anyway, this is a most kooky place, and you get to it by a pathwya behind the Druid Inn. A vicar, in the 1700s, thought to make the natural rock formations more exciting, and set to,... More

7 mile hike around Birchover to the 9 Ladies... then a pit stop at the Druids Inn. Take a map of the area and a compass...worth a visit.
