The cottage has been newly created from a farm barn and has been tastefully converted to create a spacious, warm, cosy and comfortable cottage with two en-suite bedrooms, open living/dining/kitchen area with wood burning stove, utility room with washer / drier, and flat screen TV's in all rooms. Ample parking is available on site for up to four vehicles and an exclusive patio and garden are provided. Lovely walks are available from the doorstep including a farm walk and you can even fish in our stream. The Gritstone Trail is nearby and lots of other superb walks.

Golf courses, fishing, sailing and horse riding are nearby. This is the perfect base from which to explore the beauty and delights of our lovely coutryside. We are ideally located to visit the delights of Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire. Numerous local attractions are within easy access including historic houses, NT properties, superb gardens, Jodrell Bank, Alton Towers, the historic market towns of Leek and Macclesfield and the spa town of Buxton.

“Lovely cottage”

Reviewed 20 Apr 2019

We chose the cottage as it was close to the venue for our daughter's wedding,and were not disappointed. This excellent cottage is warm, cosy and immaculate. Equipped with everything you need and was spotlessly clean. Brenda and Tom were friendly and helpful, and were available if we needed anything, either by phone or just a knock on their door. Loved meeting the dog Bess and sitting with her on her bench. We would have no hesitation is recommending this cottage and would return again.

“Perfect start to a New Year”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2019

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.

Owner's reply: Thanks you so much for your review - your lovely comments are very much appreciated. I'm so pleased to read that you found the cottage to be 'immaculate'. - as I work very hard to maintain high standards of cleanliness and decoration - which, from your comments, you obviously recognised during your stay. I'm also pleased that you managed the walk up to the top of our local hill - Bosley Cloud - and that you were able to enjoy the fabulous views. Happy New Year - it would be lovely to welcome you back in the future. kind regards Brenda

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. The owner gave us a friendly welcome and the cottage was so cosy, warm, clean and a very special place to stay with all amenities catered for. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone - there is even a welcome from Bess the dog!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your lovely comments following your stay at our Swallows Barn holiday cottage. We strive to ensure that it is to a very high standard in terms of cleanliness and that it is warm and cosy with all that you need for a 'home from home' stay. Your positive comments in this regard are therefore very welcome and much appreciated. I'm sure that Bess (our very soft sheepdog!) is missing the attention which you gave her. Thank you for staying with us and kind regards, Brenda & Tom.
