We have been here before and enjoyed climbing on the rocks so when we saw others going up the hill to some other rocks we followed. They led us to Robin Hoods Stride an outcrop of rocks on top of the hill about 500 yards from the Druid caves. We had a picnic in the sun and payed around on... More

Firstly a comment on another review headed “This place is called Rowtor Rocks - NOT Druid's Caves which is another place altogether!” The "another place" is not Druid's cave, that is shown on the map as "Hermits cave" and since it contains a carved crucifix and Druidism is a pre-Christian Pagan belief system Hermits cave is a better description for...

Firstly, yes the correct name is Rowtor Rocks, however everyone seems to refer to them as Druids Caves! We decided to check out Druids Caves late one afternoon. Situated by the Druid Inn in Birchover, they are easy to find. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. It consists of a large collection of rocks with caves,... More

To avoid any confusion, this place is Rowtor Rocks; Druid's Cave is a totally separate place a couple of miles away outside the village which is also worth visiting. Druid's Cave is marked on the 1:50,000 OS map in its correct place - as is Rowtor Rocks. Rowtor Rocks is worth a look around and provided 20 minutes or so... More

What a great find! Spent an hour on here until we ran out of light. Slippery in the winter, and the first cave that you crawl through has a very low ceiling (and I have the split scalp to prove it - ouch) - but enormous fun and really brings out your inner child.

Facing the Druid in a very short walk to your left and up the steps you are faced with this amazing rock playground. Clambering and climbing in and around the nooks and crannies letting us oldies relive the childhood we often forget it was very do-able. After an hour or so we headed back to the steps. Unfortunately hubby pulled... More

What a great place. We went even though it was raining but despite that we found safe routes up to the top of the rocks. More treacherous paths where available and avoided. Ducking in and out of the caves,nooks and overhangs to get out the rain. It's the type of place where a kids mind would go haywire imagining what... More

Behind the Druid's Inn is a stony path covered in moss. It leads up the hillside to the Druids' Caves, a jumbled series of hidey holes, overhangs, passages, suitable for those with agile legs. Kids need supervising as there is plenty of potential for scrambling and falling. Good for photographers, and anyone who likes a good view from some very... More

Birchover is signposted but not Druids Caves, they have another local name which I can not remember but if you find the Druids Pub (which was open when we went in January 2014) then park in the pubs car park and they are up the left hand side of the pub, up a path and some steps, you will walk...
