A lovely relaxing day

Not a good place to take children or if you have walking climbing disabilities but if you want peace and tranquillity this is ideal

From the roadside you wouldn't know they are there - find the Druid's Inn and they are literally right behind. Beautiful and surprisingly big natural cave system that really makes you wonder what they were used for! Very other worldly . A word of caution they are high up and not fenced in so be extremely careful with children and... More

This is a very atmospheric place with Brilliant climbing and views to be had on Rowtor rocks. Perched on high knoll just behind the Druid s pub

The Druids caves or Rowtor rocks were a little hard to find but it was well worth it, I spent an hour by myself wandering around taking it all in. It is a magical place and so, so beautiful! Loved it here.

Am loathe to write a review as it was so deliciously quiet. We were there with our 2 year-old and he needed constant attention as it is a bit dangerous but despite this we lost an hour clambering into caves, admiring the view and wondering about the strange rock carvings and victorian graffiti.

Tucked away and can be easily missed. Take a walk behind the pub and you will find the trail up to the caves. Look out for the "throne" carved into the rocks. Careful of sheer edges especially if your dog is off lead.

We had a job finding the location but it was worth the effort. Bit of a scramble to the top but were treated to some fine views and no charge. Worth a stop off if you are passing.

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, 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
