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. Set in the conservation village of Chelmorton, there are walks from the door and beautiful countryside to explore in every direction, plus a traditional village pub serving good food just 5 minutes walk away. In the summer you can sit out on your private patio and enjoy the peace and tranquility. The market towns of Buxton and Bakewell are within easy reach, as are the historic houses of Chatsworth and Haddon Hall. South facing, the property is approached from the road by a walled path which leads to a private, flagged patio area with garden furniture. French window...Come to Swallow Barn for an idyllic rural retreat in the heart of the Peak District National Park.

About the neighbourhood
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 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, Lathkill, Dove and Derwent ar...
Getting around
The nearest train station is at Buxton, one hour by train from Manchester. The most regular bus service to the village is the Transpeak (TP) route which runs between Derby and Manchester hourly and stops 10 minutes walk from Swallow Barn. If arriving by car you can park free on the roadside within sight of Swallow Barn.
