    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.

    "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"

    "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."

    "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."

    "Swallow Barn is a cosy well equipped cottage ideal for two people, in a lovely location. It was beautifully presented and the sofas and bed are very comfortable. The roll top bath looks very stylish but could be a problem for some as it is quite high and it’s difficult to regulate the water temperature in the hand held shower. There was no phone signal and no WiFi in the cottage which might be a problem for some people."
    Judith ‐ 29 Sep 2018
    "Perfect cottage in perfect surroundings for a lovely break. Stunning views from the lounge, comfortable and cosy throughout. Everything you could possibly need was available, welcome gift of wine was a nice touch. Our dog enjoyed the open spaces and we loved the peace and quiet. Would definitely return, highly recommended. Beautiful walks from the cottage or just a short drive away."

    "The accommodation was incredibly clean and very cosy. The views were breathtaking and whilst just outside the Peak District National Park, it's still a great base from which to explore the area with excellent road links. The only suggestion I would make is that the bath with shower attachment doesn't work well in terms of convenience - a standard shower in the bathroom would have made this a ten out of ten property."
    Peter ‐ 12 Sep 2018
    "Excellent place to stay for the two of us to explore this region."
