The Bull's Head

Nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Peak District, in the pretty village of Foolow, The Bull’s Head is a traditional country inn dating back to at least 1753.  Today it boasts all the charm and character of its ancient heritage, but with a warm, friendly atmosphere, offering fabulous food and a wide range of cask ales, malt whiskeys and fine wines.  Even better, you can stay awhile in beautiful accommodation at The Bull’s Head, to really make the most of your time in this stunning part of the Peak District National Park!     


About The Bull’s Head

The Bull's Head

You’ll feel at home in this delightful country village inn from the moment you walk through the heavy oak door to be greeted by flagstone floors, a crackling open log fire, and a warm, cosy bar and restaurant. 

The Bull’s Head has been providing a welcome haven for weary travellers for nearly 300 years, and it’s still a refuge for locals and visitors alike. Muddy boots and muddy paws are always welcome here!

The Bull’s Head Location

The delightful village of Foolow dates back at least to Anglo-Saxon times; indeed its name suggests that it was probably the site of a now lost pre-historic burial mound.  The village today is small but very pretty, with quiet, country lanes, limestone cottages, a village green with a medieval cross … even a picture-perfect duck pond, complete with white Aylesbury ducks!  

Foolow

The scene wasn’t always so quiet and peaceful, however.  In the early 18th Century Foolow was a thriving centre for lead mining, and its population and wealth boomed.  More people arrived with the diversion of the Sheffield to Buxton turnpike road through Foolow in the late 18th Century, at which time the Bull’s Head was one of five pubs in the village.  It’s now the last survivor.  

Foolow lies within the White Peak area of the Peak District, characterised by gently rolling hills and lush green pastures criss-crossed with limestone walls.  There are beautiful walks in every direction from the village. Only a short drive away lies the historic village of Eyam, famous for its inspiring tale of courage during the Plague of 1666, and the picturesque Ashford in-the-Water, surely a contender for the prettiest village in the Peak District.  Still within easy driving distance is the town of Bakewell, home of the delicious Bakewell pudding, and the country estates of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.

How stunning is this?! 😍

How stunning is this?! 😍I have waited two whole years to get this shot and this morning was that very very special moment to achieve my dream. Stag Sunrise is now a print and canvas! What a morning seeing these guys watching the sun rise at 4.56 am. Its why i do what i do as you simply never know when that moment comes when you come across something and your heart starts instantly pumping out of your chest until you can raise the camera up and capture the moment in time. The feeling after the first click is monumental and utterly addictive as im sure you can imagine. Two years since i set myself that goal of stags in the sunrise - weheyyyyyyy another one ticked off the list 🙂 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
