The Derbyshire region

The Peak District National Park encompasses some of the most breathtaking scenery in England and draws walkers and outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world. The countryside is spectacular and varied – from the gritstone moorland of the 'Dark Peak' to the gentler limestone landscape of fields and valleys in the 'White Peak'. Situated in the middle of England, it is easy to reach by car or public transport.

The historic villages and towns of the Peak District are a real pleasure - with their alleyways, courtyards and arcades of small individual shops. Bakewell, Leek, Buxton and Ashbourne all have a wealth of outlets selling crafts, antiques and speciality foods, as well as regular traditional markets. Bakewell's farmers market (held on the last Saturday of the month) is the second biggest in the country. Buxton's splendid Opera House hosts a full theatre programme, including the renowned Buxton Festival of opera and literature.

The area also boasts a wealth of historic houses, castles and splendid gardens to discover. Chatsworth, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, is the most well known stately home, medieval Haddon Hall is a lesser known gem and the National Trust has several grand properties within easy reach including Sudbury Hall, Kedleston Hall and Hardwick Hall.


Swallow Barn is situated right at the heart of the National Park and therefore offers the perfect base for exploring the area. It is situated in Chelmorton, an ancient Derbyshire village in the 'White Peak' renowned for the surrounding narrow strip fields bounded by limestone walls which trace the patterns of medieval farming methods. Today the fields enclose herds of nibbling sheep and grazing cows. As a conservation village, not on the way to anywhere, it is peaceful and safe. Very little traffic goes up and down the road and you are just as likely to see sheep being herded up the street or a few hens wandering about. There are no shops in the village, however the Church Inn (which serves good food) is just 2 minutes walk up the road.

The picturesque dales of the rivers Wye, Lathkill, Dove and Derwent are all nearby. There are countless footpaths, bridleways and quiet lanes to explore and a selection of leaflets, brochures and maps at Swallow Barn can help you plan your day. Secure bicycle storage is available for your bikes at Swallow Barn. However if you prefer to hire bikes there is are excellent cycle hire centres just a few miles away on the Monsal Trail and Tissington Trail – former railway lines which offer miles of safe, traffic-free cycling.

The nearest railway station to Swallow Barn is Buxton (6m), served by trains from Manchester. The airports at Manchester, East Midlands and Liverpool are all less than 1.5 hours away by car.
