Location description from owner

The England region

Swallows Barn is situated on a working farm in a small rural village with a view of Bosley Cloud - the local landmark - and superb walks from the doorstep or within easy access. The location is a perfect 'central' position for exploring the many delights of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The farm is nestled in the foothills of the Peak National Park of Derbyshire - with it's outstanding beautiful countryside, villages, the spa town of Buxton and stately homes such as Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall. Staffordshire similarly enjoys outstanding countryside including the Roaches and also has lovely villages, the towns of Stoke 'Potteries', Trentham Gardens and Shopping Village, Rudyard Lake and Alton Towers theme park. Cheshire has an abundance of places to visit - from historic houses, spectacular gardens, museums of all types, historic woodlands such as Macclesfield and Delamere Forests, Jodrell Bank and National Trust properties such as Styal Mill. If you wish to enjoy the great outdoors - then this area is a must for fantastic panaromic views and fabulous walking routes whatever your walking ability. Teggs Nose and Shuttlingslow are a must ! Cyclists can get 'off road' in the forest routes or on the nearby Biddulph Valley Way or Middlewood way. Golf courses are in abundance and horse riding, fishing and sailing opportunities are nearby. You can even bring your horse to our farm and perhaps visit Somerford Park Farm's superb farm ride and facilities. Country pubs and lovely restaurants are all nearby. Visit the market towns of Leek, Congleton and Buxton during your stay and enjoy a trip to the theatre - Buxton Opera House is an absolute gem. The historic 'Roman' city of Chester is under an hour's drive away and also the cities of Manchester and Liverpool. Serious shoppers may enjoy a trip to the Trafford Centre or to Cheshire Oaks. All in all - whatever your interest may be - it can be found here from a beautiful location - and we guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

Congleton

This must be one of the most beautiful areas in England - from the Cheshire plains - to the fabulous 'Peaks' of the Peak District and Staffordshire. There is an abundance of things to see and to do - whatever your interest may be. Lovely quaint villages with their own annual well dressings or fetes, market towns with outdoor markets, and the spa town of Buxton with its original well of healing water, pavilion gardens and historic Opera House. Canals - such as Macclesfield canal with its 12 locks at Bosley and other waters such as Rudyard Lake, Tittesworth Reservoir and the three reservoirs at Langley are there to be enjoyed. The Gritstone Trail and Pennine Way can be accessed nearby, as can Macclesfield Forest and Delamere Forest, rural pubs and restaurants. Golf courses to play golf, reservoirs for sailing, rocks to climb, horses to ride, fishing lakes to fish , a local brewery to enjoy, Alton Towers for a theme park or 'go ape' in the woodlands - the list of interesting places to see and activities to do are endless! The roman town of Chester with its racecourse and Zoo are under an hour away. We can guarantee that there is something for everyone of all ages in this lovely area. But be warned - once seen - you will have to return again and again to further enjoy the fabulous countryside and local experiences on offer.

“Delivers in so many ways”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2016

We were not sure what to expect after staying in other cottages, but looking at other revues and experiencing it ourselves, what a wonderful place this is. I traveled with my wife and our 30 yr old daughter to find this delight in the countryside. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need, the beds are lovely and comfortable, the bathrooms are clean and tidy. A big must for us was no squeaking floorboards and there was none. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage - and experienced some of the superb attractions and beautiful countryside which this area has to offer. I hope we'll meet again in the future. kind regards Brenda

“Wonderful in every way!”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2014

We enjoyed an extended stay at Swallows Barn during February and March 2014, and highly recommend it . Brenda and Tom went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. The cottage is beautifully renovated to a very high standard, and everything is provided that you may need. Our young children loved being on the farm and being able to see the animals and pet the farm dog. The area is beautiful, with wonderful views from the cottage itself and lovely walks directly from the farm, which Brenda was happy to show us. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and thank Brenda and Tom for looking after us so thoughtfully.

Thank you for your lovely review of Swallows Barn. It was our pleasure to have you to stay and it seemed so strange when you left after your extended stay. We particularly missed the children walking round the farm and being so inquisitive - and enjoying sitting on the tractors and playing in the hay barn. It was fortunate that your stay coincided with lambing time so they were able to see and hold the new born lambs. We wish you well in your new home and life abroad. With kind regards Brenda & Tom
