“Beautiful welcoming Farmhouse Cottage in a great location” We have just enjoyed our third visit to Farmhouse Cottage. You feel at home as soon as you step through the door. Warm and cosy with a lovely kitchen/living room very well equipped with everything you need for your stay. It is beautifully clean. The bedroom is very spacious with a large and very comfortable bed and a lovely shower room. The location is excellent with beautiful countryside on the doorstep. You can enjoy lovely walks, spectacular scenery and country pubs serving excellent food. National Trust properties and many other places of interest are all within a short drive. Thank you Brenda and Tom for a lovely stay we look forward to our next visit.
“Wonderful home-away-from-home” We stayed at Dane Cottage for 9 nights, as we have family in Congleton, but didn't want to spend all our time in hotels and in spare bedrooms.
Hilary and Andrew have done a wonderful job with Dane Cottage. It's beautifully appointed, scrupulously clean and very comfortable. The surroundings are outstanding, especially if you're a walker or fisherman.
Many rental cottages serve as a place where all the things the owners don't want, but don't want to throw away, end up. That isn't the case here. The kitchen is well appointed with a proper oven and gas hob, sharp knives, and there isn't a warped pot or pan in sight. There's also a dishwasher and washing machine, complete with a couple of tabs for each. The shower was powerful, with plenty of hot water, and little bottles of shower gel, shampoo and body lotion, which was great, since we didn't bring any.
The bed and living area is very comfy, and there's free wi-fi. I worked whilst we were there, and the signal was more than enough to conduct VOIP calls. Mobile phone signal was a little less reliable, but connecting to wi-fi and using a messenger service instead of texting or calling was fine.
All in all, it was a wonderful home-form-home, complete with a lovely doggy called Bailey., who was happy to be petted, but equally happy to ignore you! I highly recommend
“Beautiful rural retreat” Lovely, spacious, immaculate, modern but homely cottage. Fantastic, relaxing Christmas break with 2 under 5's. Beautiful surrounding countryside and views. Will certainly visit again.

Excellent cottage in an ideal location
We had a great stay in this lovely cottage. Well equipped and tastefully furnished, we had no gripes at all with the accommodation. It is ideally situated for visiting both the Peak District and the many National Trust places that are within easy travelling distance. Highly recommended. …
Perfect start to a New Year
Staying at Swallows Barn with our daughter and son in law to see out 2018 and welcome 2019 was the best choice we could have made. The Cottage is beautiful, cosy, immaculate and spotless. We arrived just as daylight was fading and the cottage was lit and warm complete with xmas tree and decorations which was such a nice touch. Brenda was lovely and friendly and gave us some room in her own freezer ( we cooked all meals as we have mixed diet requirements) and the kitchen and equipment was perfect for self catering … we even made a full roast dinner.
The surrounding countryside has lots of walks within a short starting distance. Brenda recommended the climb to the top of The Cloud …. so pleased we did it as what a view.
There are absolutely no buts when it comes to Swallows Barn just when do we get to go back. Thank you and a Happy New Year to you and family Brenda. …
