    Swallow Barn is a spacious, semi-detached stone cottage, which is located all on the ground floor within the grounds of the owner’s home a short walk from Carsington Water. The cottage has a stunning bedroom with a beautiful wooden bed and striking oak furnishings – in keeping with its architectural design with tall ceilings and gorgeous exposed beams. The large and airy open plan living/dining room has French doors leading out to a patio.
    Although not a working farm Millfields Farm, where Swallow Barn sits, does have some friendly residents for you to meet, which include four kune kune pigs, a pony, two miniature Shetland ponies, geese, chickens and ducks. The property is ideally situated at the southern tip of the Peak District near the picturesque market town of Ashbourne with its quaint cobbled market place and hidden alleys to explore. Carsington Water is a mere 3-minute walk away offering superb water sports, sailing and bike hire facilities with an area devoted to wildlife along with cycle and walking trails. Other places to visit nearby include Bakewell, Matlock Bath, Haddon Hall, Chatsworth House and Keddleston Hall, as well as other National Trust and English Heritage properties. It is only a short drive to Dovedale and the other lovely dales of the limestone White Peak District, which offers great walking. A little further afield, visit Alton Towers theme park for a great day out for both adults and children alike. So after a busy day exploring the beautiful area, why not open the French doors and enjoy the views over the countryside whilst sitting on the patio enjoying a BBQ on a summer day? Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
    Swallow Barn can be booked together with Woodpecker Loft (UK4022), Curlew Cottage (UK4024) and Barn Owl Lodge (UK4025) to accommodate up to 24 guests.

    "We had a great long weekend in Swallow Barn in November. The cottage is part of a complex of holiday lets but we didn’t feel overlooked and weren’t disturbed by any other guests. The kitchen, whilst small, is well equipped and the rest of the cottage was comfortable and clean with a generous supply of towels and toiletries. When we arrived (late Friday night) the cottage was cool (I think it had probably been empty for a few days) but it warmed up quickly once we worked out how to adjust the thermostat. Overall we thought the cottage was very good value and would happily return ."

    "Very comfortable cottage for two close to Carsington Water. Relaxing view from the window. Just the place to come and stay and let the world go on without you for awhile with lots of places to visit not to far away if you feel so inclined."

    "Lovely cosy, luxury cottage with fantastic views. Would love to stay again"

    "Beautiful cottages and location.Quality furnishings and well equipped. TV, dvd player, cd player and board games. Owner even left us wine, bread, milk and eggs for our arrival. Can’t recommend enough"

    "I holiday alone but I take my 2 dogs with me, I cycle, walk, read and I always take my amazon stick to relax during the evening. Swallow Barn says it has Wi-Fi, the location is good so I thought it would be a great holiday. I noticed reviews said you could not use your phone so I called the owner before my holiday to ask about wi-fi as I use an amazon stick.....he said it's not a problem. I arrived and there is no bike store (as stated) so I had to leave it in an unsecured out building. the cottage was clean but I noticed you are overlooked by 2 neighboring cottages (who share a garden right outside the living area). I plugged the stick in and although there is a wi-fi code it is NOT in range for the cottage. I tried to call the owner but there was no have to walk about outside to attempt a call....which is very quickly disconnected. I waited over 4 hours for the owner to arrive and he says "we never have any issues" which was a complete lie.....he said well I've got wi-fi on my phone.....I explained I needed to use the TV not my phone...."oh sorry I don't do anything technical" was his reply and then he said "you'll have to walk the dogs a bit more won't you"..........The fridge has not guard on the door shelf so you need to open the door with caution as it collides with the cooker and everything falls off the shelf and will smash on the tiled floor. There is no freezer in the cottage that is shared with everyone else in an out house. There is no dryer (as stated). I paid a lot of money to stop here and it was very disappointing. If I'd have known there was no wi-fi I would NOT have booked this cottage. So as long as you are are aware YOUR NEIGHBORS CAN SEE INTO EVERY ROOM except the bedroom, YOU CANNOT USE YOUR PHONE AT ALL and there IS NO WI-FI, NO BIKE STORE and NO DRYER........and The owner IS EXTREMELY RUDE!!!!......I left after 3 holiday was for 7......NEVER AGAIN...."

    "A fantastic rural location, be prepared to travel for shops pubs dining etc or take everything with you and go off grid. The cooker door is fun as opens the wrong way making it impossible to change the shelve layout, adding to difficulty to place oven trays into the oven. Animals on the farm are a real treat as are the views across the valley.No mobile reception and very poor wifi reception which is ideal for those wanting to get away, not great if you need internet."

    "The cottage was immaculate, very clean, warm and cosy. Quality furnishing, everything you need in the kitchen. The veiw from the garden is amazing. Plenty of space for the dog to run around. Would definitely stay there again."

    "Lovely, comfortable place in ideal location. Our only reason for giving a 9 was because of the bath - very beautiful roll top bath, but deadly for elderly or slightly disabled guests!"
    Elaine ‐ 30 Mar 2019
    "Ideal location for exploring The Peaks by car or Carsington Water/local walks on foot.The accomodation was ideal with lots of character & stunning views.A welcoming 'gift' on arrival & 'down to earth/affable' hosts"
    Gaynor ‐ 26 Feb 2019
    "We had a wonderful time at Swallow Barn, what an idiyic place.Will definitely go again.Bottle of wine was a lovely touch. Thank you"

    "Lovely cottage in a great location. Ideal base for heading out and exploring the Peak District."
    Claire ‐ 6 Jan 2019
    "We enjoyed the area and would visit again but not this cottage. We had an issue with the heating oil being smelt in the kitchen & lounge and had to leave the window open the 5 nights we stayed. My husband noticed there’s a leak as there was a pool of oil outside the kitchen window on the floor. Reported to the owner who blamed the wind blowing the wrong way! Also the blinds in the bedroom are inadequate. The light from the outside security light shines straight into the bedroom throughout the night. Mentioned to the owner who suggested we bloke them up, which we were already doing with cushions... not idea as it’s a barn and u can imagine how high one of the windows was. Shame, the decor and surrounding of this cottage is stunning but sadly we wouldn’t return. Also because it’s a small kitchen, but very well stocked I will add with quality crockery, the oven door wouldn’t open fully and I couldn’t adjust the shelves to fit our turkey in!"

    "we had an amazing time at swallow barn for our mini moon. the barn was always warm and everything was of super good quality. the only downside was the internet was hard to get hold of, but that added to the experience of getting away from everything for a few days. would really reccomend this place for a quiet get away"

    "A great location ,would benefit from a shower."
    IAN ‐ 24 Oct 2018
    "Very clean and comfortable cottage, which was also very well fitted out with all kitchen equipment etc that you need for a weeks stay.The only thing we missed is a shower, after a days walking, cycling or golfing it was in to the bath, which was fine for us but may be difficult for someone who has restricted mobility. (It was a high roll top bath).Overall a very enjoyable and comfortable week.Wi-fi is non existent so best to check places to go before you get back to the cottage."
