The best cottage I have stayed in. The location was excellent. The owner had gone above and beyond what I would expect. The cottage was very clean, smelled lovely and was warm. If I go back to the peaks I will be staying here again.

We liked the location and the cosy and homely feel of the cottage. The courtyard and conservatory was an added bonus.
Mrs Myers
February 2016
The Barn was beautifully decorated, warm and the furnishings were lovely. The underfloor heating in the shower room was a lovely touch. We also loved the flame-effect fire and the reclining seats on the sofa. After a long day of walking in the Peaks, Swallow Barn was a warm, cosy, welcoming place to come back to. The owners were very friendly and helpful when we asked for some local information. The view from the barn is stupendous. We were sad to leave Swallow Barn and look forward to returning one day.

We liked the freedom to come go but the knowledge that the owners were just a knock on the door away. It is perfectly situated to get anywhere in the White Peak area and there was lots of info in the cottage about walks activities. A wonderful quiet base to come home to relax.

Everything was great, the cottage was really lovely, plenty to do lots of great walks. You don't even need to drive any where for a good walk, but if you do there's lots to do, small towns close by if you fancy a bit of shopping. It was just great and I no the dog had a good time too.
Mrs Norman

The owners had thought of everything with lots of local information provided which was very much appreciated. Overall it was a very pleasant and comfortable stay.
Mrs Baghapour
August 2015
A lovely cottage; incredibly well-equipped, beautifully furnished and very clean. In a good location with nice local walks, but close to the A6 so it was easy to go and visit other places. The landlady couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We had a fab holiday and would happily recommend Swallow Barn.
Mrs Linton
June 2015
There was a relaxed atmosphere around Swallow Barn. The owners were most helpful and had taken a great deal of time to leave information on eating places, places to visit and the best of all places that accepted dogs. Also supplied were a comprehensive list of DVD's and CDs for rainy days. This was our first visit to Swallow Barn and we have booked to go again at the end of August.

First impressions count and this place was spotless. The view from the sitting room is stunning and the location is ideal, being far enough off the main road to be silent. This really is one beautiful place to stay and its location being halfway between Bakewell and Buxton is great for easy access to some lovely places. Go - you will not be disappointed!
Mr Backway
December 2014
Liked the location of the Cottage, the welcome received from the owners and the outstanding ambience of the cottage. Even our dog loved it!
Mr Douthwaite
November 2014
The conversion was really well done and the facilities were excellent. The owner was both helpful and unobtrusive. Well worth the money.
Mr Coles
October 2014
Great location - a secluded hamlet yet minutes from facilities. Although a small property, it makes excellent use of the space, there was plenty of room for two of us. The owner shows great attention to detail - the information packs were the best we've encountered. Special mention to the slow cooker; just the ticket after a bracing autumnal walk.
Ms Thompson
February 2014
We liked the cosiness of the property. It was lovely to return to after a day out. The owner was available and helpful when needed. The location was quiet and peaceful, with great walks from the barn and easy access to the A6.

A cosy cottage for 2 people with wonderful views and great walks from the door. Very well equipped with information about local walks and amenities - all up to date! The owners were very helpful and friendly.
Mrs Clarke
July 2014
This was an exquisite property in a lovely area. The owners have been so thoughtful and generous in the way they have equipped Swallow Barn. We particularly appreciated the amount of helpful information regarding walks and places to visit and the welcome gifts of biscuits, milk and flowers. We enjoyed the numerous footpaths direct from the barn and that there were so many places of interest within very easy driving distance. It is important to us that we can take our dog when we holiday in the UK. He was welcome at Swallow Barn but also at many pubs and tearooms in the area. And he was allowed to enjoy the gardens at Chatsworth!
Mr Prentice

Excellent base for walking holiday in the Peak District. Most well equipped cottage we have been to plus a few extras; milk,chocolates and flowers and also dog biscuits, bowl and lead. Enjoyable stress free break.
Mr Gahan

The location was perfect as was the cottage. The owner had gone to great trouble to make us welcome and has also created several folders of local places of interest, walks and sites to see. They all came in very handy. Superb.
Mrs Chiswell
October 2013
Swallow Barn really exceeded our expectations. The cottage has been decorated and equipped to a high standard. A lot of thought has gone into the details, such as folders of information on the area, local walks, places to eat, etc. The kitchen was well equipped. The comfortable recliner sofa was lovely to relax in during the evenings, and the central heating and log effect fire kept us warm and cosy. The beds were very comfortable with duck down duvets.
Mrs Bubb

Whether you want to walk or visit places of interest, this cottage is the ideal location in the heart of beautiful scenery yet only 1/2 mile from the main road. Without doubt, this was the best self catering accommodation I have ever stayed in.

I cannot rate the accommodation highly enough, it was amazing in every respect. The owners had given a lot of thought into providing everything for your holiday - a well stocked kitchen, towels and lots of little personal touches, like fresh flowers. Cant wait to go back.
Mr Hurley
March 2013
The owner added her own touches, such as providing milk, water, biscuits, and flowers which made it feel very welcoming. We loved being able to go for good walks from the property, knowing we had a very nice place to get back to at the end of the day.
Mr Ashton

Mr Parish

The cottage has everything anyone could possibly want. What a wonderful holiday. Walks from the front door, ours ended in the two good pubs, one at the end of the road, the other in Taddington both serve good pub grub, and the beer is nectar. We have several cottage holidays, this one is far ahead of all the others. Brilliant. We will be back. We wanted to stay forever.
Mrs Hollingsworth

Swallow Barn is comfortably furnished and is well equipped. The owner has put a lot of work into a file of local information which is interesting and informative.
Mrs Lister
February 2012
The Peak District was excellent for walking and photography, which are the reasons for us going there. It was nice to come back to a very comfortable warm cottage each day. There were also little treats for our dog left by the owners.

Mr Proud

Beautiful setting and wonderfully equipped and furnished accommodation. The owners were really helpful. Totally dog friendly and even treats were left for the dog. Fantastic information about the area.
June 2015
We stayed for 4 nights and it was delightful. We took our dog Charlie and it was perfect for walking him first and last thing each day as the location was stunning. We walked to the local pub, which took about 15mins where Charlie was made very welcome, we ate there one night and found the food to be home-made and enjoyable. The accommodation was amazing, the owners had thought of everything, to be honest it was more like a hotel with towels, bed-linen, kitchen full of everything needed including condiments and the local information inc. walks and places to eat was really helpful. We even had tea/coffee/sugar/water/milk/biscuits and a vase of fresh flowers waiting for us. The location was rural but near to all the places that we wanted to visit, nowhere was far away, we were extremely pleased with our choice.

Cannot praise this conversion too much. Everything was spot on. The owner was friendly and helpful and the location was ideal.the decor was tasteful, the sofa was huge but really comfortable. The TV reception was excellent and the DVDs player worked, which we found unusual judging from past experiences. Brilliant

The cottage was well equipped and clean, the owners were friendly and we were made welcome. We have just booked this property for next year.

The cottage was immaculate, absolutely nothing missing. The owner was on hand if any help needed. The flowers and biscuits were a nice touch.
January 2014
Would definitely return here. The lovely owner was very helpful, and had included comprehensive information about the area. Everything to make your stay comfortable. Reclining leather sofa, CD/DVD/TV, well equipped kitchen which even had a slow cooker. Garden is mentioned; there is a small enclosed courtyard, but didn't spot a garden.

We really enjoyed our stay at Swallow Barn, the owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The cottage is right on the doorstep of some lovely walks without the need of using the car. The owners have taken a great deal of time and care to create an excellent holiday home, thinking of everything that the holidaymaker might need to make their stay just that extra comfortable.
December 2012
The owners were very helpful with local knowledge of walks and places to eat. The cottage was modern and well equipped and a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day. Everything needed for a comfortable stay was supplied. In the middle of the Peak District situated between Bakewell and Buxton, Priestcliffe enabled us to reach most of the area during the week. The scenery is stunning and so varied, wonderful views from high up in the north to beautiful valleys in the south. We had a wonderful week despite the changeable weather.
