Looking for a particular view
« on: July 05, 2013, 08:51:22 pm »
Doing research on my upcoming Cotwolds trip I read about a place that's at the upper side of a valley and looks down over the valley below.  It's got a spectacular view for miles and miles.  Ooh!   I think 'birdbeak' or such was in the name.  Sound familiar?  Thanks,  LRB

The village Birdlip is at: N5149.646 W00206.468

The view point is at: N5150.247 W00206.064, this is NOT on the A417 but on a dead end road just west of the A417. You can sit in your car and enjoy the view but it is better out of the car :)

Thanks so much for the replies.  Exploring the Cotswolds will be a highlight of my sojourn.  LRB


PS.   I just read that the Barrow Wake viewpoint at Birdlip is an infamous 'dogging' spot.  Hopefully the muggles won't be watching me.

As long as you are not planning any night caching you'll be fine. The views out over Gloucester on a sunny day are fantastic. I won't tell you how pretty the view is at night with Gloucester all it up so that no one jumps to conclusions about my post... oh wait  :o ;D

The Air Balloon pub is very close by too. I have only drank there, so can't tell you if they do good food.
