Cottage
Swallows Barn is set on a lovely working farm in Cheshire - nestled in the foothills of the Peak District National Park. The cottage has been newly created from a farm barn and has been tastefully converted to create a spacious, warm, cosy and comfortable cottage with two en-suite bedrooms, open living/dining/kitchen area with wood burning stove, utility room with washer / drier, and flat screen TV's in all rooms. Ample parking is available on site for up to four vehicles and an exclusive patio and garden are provided. Lovely walks are available from the doorstep including a farm walk and you can even fish in our stream. The Gritstone Trail is nearby and lots of other superb walks.

About the neighbourhood
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, r...
