Chelmorton, Peak District National Park, England
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.

The barn was very well equipped and clean making maximum use of the small space. The village is very friendly with an excellent local pub within easy walking distance providing great food and a weekly quiz on a Monday night. Delightful walks in all directions directly from the barn with many pretty villages to explore. Both Buxton and Bakewell are...

Everything was ideal, the cottage was clean and well equipped. The location was great - a very small village with a good pub in walking distance. It is nicely placed for walking and there were very useful maps and guides in the cottage. The owners were very pleasant and helpful.

Management response:

Really glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again, Gill

Fantastic service and hosting, no bother and the place is small and cosy - just what I needed to retreat into the peak district. Highly recommend this place to get away from the hustle and bustle of hectic everyday life.

Management response:

Thanks Diane, glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again.

About the neighborhood
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,...
