The Heart of England/Peak District

The stunning and diverse landscapes of The Peak District National Park offer something special to all visitors. It could be a gentle stroll by a river watching the wildlife, or a picturesque village to enjoy tea and homemade cake. However, this is serious walking country and offers walks to challenge the most energetic visitor. You may have seen Julia Bradbury or Ben Fogle on TV who know the area well.

Other outdoor activities including cycling, horse riding, fishing, water sports, golf and climbing.

Stately Homes include Chatsworth House (home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire), Hardwick Hall (built by Bess of Hardwick), Haddon Hall (home of Lord Edward Manners) and Tissington Hall (home of Sir Richard Fitzherbert). Yes, Chatsworth, Haddon and Tissington are family homes and it is not unusual to meet family members. You may have seen these places in movies including The Duchess, The Other Boleyn Girl, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice and the Deathly Hallows.

Come and find out about our Well Dressings, try the original Bakewell Pudding, sample some local beers (we have 30 micro-breweries), see Chesterfield's famous Crooked Spire, take a tram at Crich Tramway Village, visit World Heritage Mills, see Britain's only Ice Age Engravings at Creswell Crags or just relax and enjoy the fantastic views.


Chesterfield is Derbyshire's largest town, famous for its Crooked Spire. Visit the Chesterfield Museum to find out why the spire is twisted. The oldest part of the town, The Shambles, dates back to medieval times and has an interesting mix of shops and cafes. Shoppers love Chesterfield's outdoor markets (including a Flea Market and a Farmers' Market) and the traditional Market Hall just reopened after extensives improvements

Other nearby places of interest include Barrow Hill Roundhouse Railway Centre and the Chesterfield Canal where you can take a trip on a narrowboat.

The cottage is located in the hamlet of Overgreen, on the eastern edge of The Peak District. This is a quiet agricultural area. There are walks from the door through the picturesque Linacre Valley with its woods and 3 reservoirs. A very short walk in the other direction takes you to The Gate Inn pub/restaurant.

"Cottages and B & B of high quality"

Whilst this review refers to "The Swallows" we have also stayed in "The Robin" and enjoyed a bed and breakfast room in Barbara and Alan's House. We have been delighted with the quality and standards of accommodation offered by the Campbells. Proof of our satisfaction is the fact that we have booked another week at Cutthorpe in August 2012 when we will again be staying in "The Swallows".
In addition to the excellent accommodation there is access to a large garden and play facilities are available for young children. Outdoor furniture is provided on a sheltered patio behind both "The Swallows" and "The Robin".
Those who book will also find the welcome by Barbara and Alan second to none. They are ideal hosts as they let one enjoy the peace and quiet of these desirable properties but if you need them they are there to assist in any way possible.
If you need more reasons to book any of this accommodation can I suggest you might like The Gate Inn which is a quality pub just across the road and the myriad of footpaths in the area which make it a walkers paradise.

"Quiet and Tranquil but close to everywhere."

Had a fantastic time staying at the Swallows. The hosts are very helpful and friendly and could not do enough to help. Being close to the reservoir reserve made for some nice family walks. The cottage was spacious, clean and warm with all the amenities required to undertake most household tasks. Enjoyed our stay so much we will return on our next trip to the UK.
