The Limestone Way passes close by the farm, which is situated on the junction of no less than 4 major footpaths throughout the area. Bordering the farm is the mystical Stanton Moor with its ancient 'Nine Ladies' stone circle. A little farther afield the River Lathkill provides the focus of a pleasant walk through the Lathkill Dale. Robin Hood's Stride and Catcliffe Rocks are just 2 of the local climbing areas.
Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are close by. Matlock Bath boasts the children's attraction 'Gullivers Kingdom' and a cable car to the Heights of Abraham. There is also the Derbyshire Wildlife's Whistlestop Centre and Mining Museum.
Birchover Carnival Committee hosted a fun Tug o’ War event over the August Bank Holiday to raise funds for Birchover Carnival 2015.
Six teams took part, taking turns to pull (best out of three) against each other and points were awarded for winning pulls
The results were as follows:
Swell Heads 5
Craggy Island 4
Barn Farm 3
Mad Hatters 2
Shrunken Heads 0
The award winning Barn Farm Campsite in Birchover proved a picturesque setting for the family fun event and there was a great holiday atmosphere with various stalls and games being well supported by the crowds enjoying a bank holiday break in the beautiful Peak District.
The cheering crowds encouraged and supported the teams, who enthusiastically gave it their all hoping to win first prize. Teams consisted of 5 members, with a mixture of families and friends joining in the fun and eager to win.
After much sweat and tears, there were two teams at the top of the Leader Board, with the final between Swell Heads and Craggy Island.
After two more pulls in the final the Swell Heads confirmed their place as champions, winning the beer, kindly donated by Thornbridge Brewery Bakewell.
The evening concluded with a very enjoyable fun session Tug o’ War with children of all ages taking part in a chaotic finale to a memorable event with £170 made towards Birchover Carnival 2015.
The Carnival Committee would like to thank Barn Farm Campsite, Peak Rail, Matlock Farm Park, Thornbridge Brewery and everyone who supported the event.

Over the winter months we have improved 13 touring pitches which will be good news to all our caravan, campervan, trailer tents and motorhome owners who visit us! All pitches are gravelled hardstanding and as the pitches may be uneven, levelling blocks will be required as well as heavy duty pegs for the awning areas, grass pegs will not be sufficient.
