You can share our lovely views over the Derbyshire countryside, be wonderfully situated for exploring the Derwent Valley World Heritage and be right next door to Belper with its award-winning high street.

If you’re a cyclist, you can test yourself on our challenging hills, before your reward of a rest at our café. If you’re a walker, you can choose from numerous long and short routes starting and finishing at the Spotted Cow – including the famous Five Pubs Walk, all five dog-friendly!

Why not find out more about Holbrook’s history? Two Roman kilns were discovered in the village in the 1960’s and the ancient Roman Portway runs through our middle. Our industrial past includes a heritage of stocking manufacture and you can see several stocking framework cottages in the village, including one, a listed building, which is accessed through the Spotted Cow car park.

The Spotted Cow pub, the Spotted Calf café and the post office are housed in a building which dates back to 1604 and stands in the centre of Holbrook conservation area. It was first listed as an ale house in 1861, then owned by James Sheldon, “a beer retailer and carpenter” back when people both ran a pub and had another job!
