Curl up on the massive leather sofa in front of the log burning stove or chill by the heated pool (June,July,Aug). Relax in rural peace, fish in the river or explore local Georgian gem Ashbourne, just 2 miles away. Walk directly to Tissington, Dovedale and The Stepping Stones and beyond from your back door. Chatsworth House is only 30 mins away. Lockable storage for bikes. Antiques, books, games and dvds, pure cotton linen. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, large fridge and Nespresso.

The space
Just two miles from the Georgian market town of Ashbourne, but nestled down a private lane, Swallows Cottage allows you to explore the Peak District in luxury. Antique four poster master bedroom (with duck down duvet - all linen is 100% cotton) , twin bedroom, bathroom with underfloor heating, large sitting room with log burning stove (first basket of logs included) and large kitchen/dining room overlooking the swimming pool and gardens beyond. Plenty of books, dvd's and games. Sleeps four comfortably. Travel cot and high chair also available. Well equipped kitchen with all the basics provided - tea, coffee, olive oil, spices, dish tabs etc. All linen and towels provided. You'll also find plenty of guide books and our very own guide to plenty of special walks from the cottage.

Guest access
Outdoor heated swimming pool with sunloungers, shared only with us - but we very rarely use it. Pool is heated and available for use during June, July and August. Large 5 acre gardens with orchard, croquet lawn, table tennis and fishing rights on the Bentley Brook. Patio area with bbq. Plenty of parking.

Other things to note
Swallows Cottage has been running for over ten 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 and plenty of kitchen essentials.

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!
