"Great Welcome. Lovely cottage. Everything of an excellent standard.  Thank you for a lovely stay, will definitely come again"

"Fantastic breakfast, compliments to the Chef.  Gorgeous house and comfortable room, thank you!"

"A Lovely clean and friendly B&B.  Rooms perfect.  Breakfast yummy! Just Perfect!"


Superb! ...

"The barn is quintessentially English with bags of character, yet it has touches of modern and is spotlessly clean. Leather sofas, stylish curtains and lovely bed linen is what we hoped for and what we got. The bathroom is clean and modern with a new shower that you could spend a month in coupled with fresh towels and soaps.

Our dog was welcome and he loved the floor to ceiling windows which allowed him to bark at passing tractors.

Nice pubs nearby, fantastic walks and friendly people. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to book again. 5 / 5"

"We stayed in the B and B for one night on a break to Alton towers. The hosts were excellent and easy check in with no fuss I was a little worried as we had our two boys and sometimes they can make a little noise in someone else's house. Nothing was a problem lovely clean room fresh bedding, and a fresh breakfast with all you could want.

Comfy clean beds, toiletries and fresh towels. Thanks again and we will be back next time we decide to visit Alton towers. 5 / 5"

"My husband and I stayed in the B&B for just one night as we were meeting up with several sports car clubs for a run around the countryside very early the next morning.

We wish we could have stayed longer! The location is perfect for exploring the fabulous Peak District. It's very quiet but not far from local amenities and the pretty town of Leek. Darren and Louise are the nicest people, we felt welcome from the first moment we arrived. ...

All in all I think this is the best B&B we've ever stayed in! We'll be back! Thank you Darren and Louise for a wonderful stay! 5 / 5"

Well equipped and clean. Loads of things to do near by, can't recommend it enough!"

"Wish I stayed longer than 4 nights but hopefully will come back next year."



"One of the best holidays ever (and I've been to some wonderful locations abroad!)

I was just able to relax for 7 days in a wonderful comfortable cottage in a lovely peaceful location! Exactly what I needed and wanted.

Even my gorgeous dog who is sometimes stressed in new locations chilled out."

We have just returned home after a lovely holiday in Swallow Barn (23rd Feb to 3rd March). The Cottage was very cosy and comfortable and extremely well equipped. Whilst on holiday we had 'The Beast from the East' and 'Storm Emma' which meant that for three days we were unable to go out anywhere. Darren and Louise were extremely kind and helpful, even sharing food with us when we ran out. Recommend this Cottage very highly, so much so that we have booked to stay again.
