Holiday Rental House
Come to Swallow Barn for an idyllic rural retreat in the heart of the Peak District National Park. A detached 17c stone barn for two, it combines contemporary style with oak beams – the perfect mix of old and new. Set in the conservation village of Chelmorton, there are walks from the door and beautiful countryside to explore in every direction, plus a traditional village pub serving good food just 5 minutes walk away. In the summer you can sit out on your private patio and enjoy the peace and tranquility. The market towns of Buxton and Bakewell are within easy reach, as are the historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. South facing, the property is approached from the road by a walled path which leads to a private, flagged patio area with garden furniture. French window...Come to Swallow Barn for an idyllic rural retreat in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

This little cottage was just right for a week exploring the peak district. Well furnished and well equipped, it was the ideal place to stay in a very quiet location.

About the neighbourhood
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, Lathkil...
How to get there
Follow the A6 from Bakewell or Buxton or the A515 from Ashbourne. Turn onto the B5270 (signposted Chelmorton) and then left into the village. Going up the main street, meet the owners of Swallow Barn at the house called 'The Green' on the left hand side of the main street, just past the stone telephone box and bungalows.
