“The Old Byre”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

One the best holidays we've had. Beautiful cottage in a beautiful position with views. We enjoyed the local villages and many walks in the area. We enjoyed it so much we booked next year as soon as we got back! Highly recommend this property for two.

“Beautiful cottage.....”
Reviewed August 2, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed in the Old Byre which is in a group on 3 cottages adjacent to the owners house. Swainsley Farm are beautifully converted stone barns set in a stunning location. The cottages are in a very secluded area with many walks and the manifold trail on your doorstep. The owners Chris and Liz were very helpful but also respected the privacy of guests. Each cottage is very private and the outside dining areas are well designed with beautiful views. The Old Byre is a one bedroom cottage with an open planned ground floor. The lounge area looks as though it's been recently decorated as the website photo is out of date. It now has a biomass stove within a traditional fireplace and a modern grey leather sofa and chair. The cottage has everything you need and the bedroom has the postcard view. We would definitely recommend this cottage to a couple who would like to get away into the middle of the beautiful Peak District and to relax in a traditional stone cottage. We had a lovely stay and will hopefully be back soon.

“Stunning views, perfect location”
Reviewed July 19, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

These cottages were extremely comfortable and well presented and the views were incomparably beautiful. There are plenty of walks in the area, many of which are possible with a buggy and small children in tow. We had some delicious meals outside and it was a wonderful place to spend time with friends. Highly recommended!

“Super location”
Reviewed June 28, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

What a wonderful week we had in the Old Byre - stunning views from our very well appointed cottage which provided everything you could need. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and the foodie basket awaiting us on arrival was a lovely touch. Walking trails on our doorstep, interesting places to visit and plenty of good food pubs nearby - what more could you want!

“Perfect cottage stay”
Reviewed May 24, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed for seven nights at the Haybarn in May 2017. We cannot recommend this destination highly enough. The cottage was clean, well looked after and contained all the facilities you would need for your holiday. The layout of the Haybarn makes it ideal for families with young children. In terms of location, this is an ideal base from which to explore the Peak District – remote enough to feel like you can relax in tranquil surroundings but close enough to some of the towns (like Bakewell and Ashbourne) for days out. Overall, this was a fantastic cottage stay – we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts and we felt well rested after our break.

“A 5* cottage in a perfect tranquil location ”

What can we say - this is the only place to stay in this area of the Peak national forest. Chris and Liz are the perfect hosts. They have thought of everything to help make your stay home from home. From cheese graters to mountain bikes. This place is probably the best we have stayed in and we cannot recommend highly enough. The accommodation is of the highest quality. We stayed in the coach house which is ideal for 6 people. There are a further two luxury cottages. The inside is modern but also contemporary and in keeping with a beautiful country cottage feel. A wonderful kitchen too which we enjoyed cooking and eating in! The outdoors are amazing. We would love to come back in the spring and summer when we really could enjoy a BBQ and a glass of wine in our private outdoor patio area. Wow - and the scenery...... What a find. Don't look past this place. Also ideal for walking and driving to the many villages, towns, pubs and attractions which can be reached in 5-30 mins. Perfect, relaxing and tranquil and with the nicest hosts you could wish to meet. Highly recommended.
