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 .

    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.
