Swallows Cottage has been running for over five years now...we've had some fabulous reviews. We lived in the Cottage when we were doing the house up so have made sure there are plenty of home comforts - and a few special things, too such as a Nespresso machine.
We want guests to come and relax and have fun in the Peak District. There are no house rules apart from sadly no pets and smoking outside only. Because of the swimming pool and ponds in the garden we suggest that the property is unsuitable for children under the age of 8 - but do please contact us if you have any questions. Travel cot and high chair available for babies.
Simon and I moved back to Derbyshire from London 20 years ago - we absolutely love living here and relish being so close to Ashbourne. With three children (now early twenties and teen) it has been a fabulous place to bring up children. We love travelling but always look forward to coming back to The Peak District - whatever time of year. Our perfect evening would be having great friends round to supper in the kitchen - with relaxed, easy food so that we can enjoy their company! Although our children (young adults!) are growing up it's always lovely to have families to stay. Dottie, our rather ancient Westie, is particularly pleased to see new faces and will drag herself away from the Aga to give you a warm welcome!
