In the heart of the National Forest, this early 18th-century pub provides modern, cozily furnished rooms with free Wi-Fi. Excellent room facilities, very clean. Unfortunately hurt my ankle whilst visiting friends, the owner was fantastic suppling ice and more than happy to assist in any way possible. Like others have said the breakfast was huge and delicious.

We found that everywhere we went during our stay everyone was extremely helpful and friendly . We went to a lovely garden centre. A nearby marina ate lovely food and everywhere was clean and tidy . Also had lovely evening meals at the Bull Head .
Swadlincote is a good centre for countryside and riverside walks. It is handy for Derby, Ashby de la Zouch, Leicester and especially Burton-on-Trent. Burton is an excellent shopping centre. There is a lovely park by the river. You can take a tour of the local Brewery and have a lovely lunch, or snack in the tap house. The National Memorial Arboretum is very close just off the A38, and should not be missed - a tranquil and beautiful setting for memorials, not only to the Armed Forces but also the Police, victims of the Twin Towers, and many others.
The village is a typical Derbyshire /Leicestershire village nothing to write home about. We arrived very late evening and managed to find a local Indian Restaurant servin* food which was excellent. Their are no distinguishing feature about the village. However, the owners of The Bull made us feel very at home. A quiet place to stay if you have something else to go to as part of your stay. Saturday evening in the Pub was busy and the restaurant full, all guests seemed to be regular guests. A good sign of good host(s).
There are a few gems around like Asby (full of history) and the local reservoir but best time to go is on a sunny day, as you could easily spend a whole day there. Also on the main high street is The Jennings Room, a little tea room great for a bit to eat, cocktails and the staff are so friendly.
