Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely cosy pet and child friendly cottage
Great location, perfect for Alton Towers. Lovely peaceful surroundings, plenty of dog walks and places to visit, Dove Dale nearby is worth going to. Cottage is cosy and has everything you will need for a family break, perfect as a base to visit the Peak District. Great hosts who made us feel so welcome on arrival, thank you Graham & family for a lovely Easter break.

Half Term Holiday
We had a lovely stay here. We are a family of five. Fabulous area and easily accessed from this cottage. Our children enjoyed the farm environment. The cottage was cosy and the owners were very pleasant and helpful. Elliott the Pony was a highlight of my children’s stay.

Very cosy with beautiful surroundings.
Great place to stay in fabulous surrounding countryside. Owners very helpful and friendly. Very cosy cottage with lots of space and amenities and very peaceful. Would have given five stars apart from the lack of shower (bath only) and poor wifi connection which would have been helpful for work. Would thoroughly recommend and will definitely return sometime.

Great place to stay
Had a lovely weekend here with family. The cottages are quaint, but more than adequate. Decent sized rooms, kitchen fully equipped. I would recommend this for someone who wants to do some walking or cycling, and people visiting Alton Towers. I managed to get a morning run in also, mostly off road. The cottages are located in farmland, and the cows are quite curious, and there are a lot, but, a gentle flash of the headlights at night shifted them. Elliot, the resident pony is very friendly. Graham and family are also very helpful and always available. The rooms were warm and well ventilated. There was a TV with a DVD player, and loads of DVD’s. My only negatives would be the lack of shower and WiFi. Both could easily be remedied. Even one of those cheap shower hoses that goes over the taps would be ok. We went in late October and got very muddy, hence a shower would have been useful. Also, WiFI was non-existent in our cottage. We had to go outside to get a weak intermittent signal, which isn’t always practical. If they could use a repeater or extender from the conservatory, this may help, but, I think this may have already been tried as there were 2 similarly named WiFi signals. It may just be that the walls are too thick, so, an external LAN cable and router would solve the problem. For these reasons, I knock off a single star. We didn’t get the opportunity to try the local pubs unfortunately, but we tried the Indian takeaway on Graham’s advice, and that was fine. To sum up, a great place to stay, well situated, and very friendly. I would happily go again and may take bikes next time.

Lovely cottage, great setting!
Spent 3 nights there in Oct17. Lovely cottage in a very rural setting, excellent location with Alton Towers 10-15 minutes away. Graham was very welcoming on arrival. Rooms were fine, double beds in both rooms (one also had bunkbeds if necessary). Also supplied a cot, baby gate and high chair for our 2yr old. No shower only a bath in our cottage, but that was fine nice to relax. Grounds and surrounding area were well kept, with a playing field, picnic tables, kids outdoor toys, chickens and a pony named Elliot. Would definitely stay there again, if up that part of the country.

Brilliant stay
Me and my family (6 adults and 1 child) stayed at the cottage for 3 nights and couldn't asked for anything better. Was greeted on the first day and given a tour around the cottage and the area. There was a lovely area full of children's outdoor toys, 3 pet chickens and a pet horse. The house had everything you need, washing machine, iron, DVD player etc. Alton towers was only 15 minutes drive away. Which is the reason we stayed. Would definitely recommend this cottage and stay here again.

Perfect Everything
We had a short weekend stay in July and it was fantastic. Graham, Joyce and thier daughter Mandy were very welcoming and accommodating. We had forgotten to bring towels - not a problem they sent some to our cottage immediately. The cottage is quaint, clean with a kitchen that had everything we needed. The two bedrooms were cosy and the bathroom and lounge were clean and neat! Leek town, Buxton and Ashbourne are all within easy driving reach as was Alton Towers and the cottage had a booklet with lots of local places to visit. The picnic bench right outside our cottage door made outside dining lovely. There was a barbecue, chickens with fresh eggs and even Elliot the unicorn pony! We will definitely stay again.

Lovely holiday
We stayed at Swallow Cottage as a group of 5 for a New Years get-together and had a lovely time. The cottage was clean and cosy and the location is simply beautiful. A highlight was a day out in nearby Dovedale - definitely would recommend! Graham and Joyce were very friendly and helpful, even letting us set off a celebratory firework in their field (hope we didn't scare the pony too much!!). Don't be put off by the comments mentioning the pound coin meters - the electricity was not expensive (we spent about £3 per day) and we weren't charged for heating. The WiFi was also fine. Overall not luxury but good value for a very reasonable price.

Quaint but outdated
Lovely quaint cottages in a beautiful quiet rural setting. Perfect to get away from hustle and bustle. Owners were lovely and helpful, but cottage itself badly needs renovating. For us in particular the double bed, kept rolling into each other as so soft, And kids bunk beds rickety. Really needs a shower of some sort too, or a way of washing hair without using a jug and water. Despite that we did still enjoy our stay.
