SWAINSLEY FARM is set on high ground looking south over the beautiful River Manifold which flows through spectacular crags and wooded valleys before joining the Dove a few miles down stream. There is great walking straight from the door but the less adventurous may prefer to stroll along the banks of the river into Dovedale or explore our pretty villages with their lovely old churches and ancient inns. We are located on the Manifold trail which offers wonderful cycling (and which also has easy access for pushchairs). We have some cycles for our guests to use at no charge. Fishing, pony-trekking, golf and water sports are all available locally. There are many attractions including Chatsworth, National Trust properties, gardens and Alton Towers. The market towns of Buxton, Bakewell, Ashbourne and Leek are a short drive away in different directions. We offer our guests a complimentary Leisure Centre pass if they wish to use the swimming pool, gym etc.

The Haybarn, 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4/5 + cot. Originally a barn and cornstore built in the 18th Century, the Haybarn has beamed ceilings, a wealth of original features and stunning views!

A new, deluxe kitchen with granite worktops has integrated appliances, under floor heating and a full range of cooking and dining ware. There’s a lovely, comfy lounge, with wood burning (bio-mas) stove.  Upstairs a landing provides access to a modern, deluxe bathroom (with bath/over-bath shower, WC and heated towel rail) and a spectacular king-size double bedroom. A separate, second bedroom has twin beds (which can be made into a king-size double by arrangement). This cottage easily accommodates two couples but the layout (second bedroom leading off the master bedroom) means that it’s particularly suitable for families, especially those with small children. The cottage also has a folding single bed.
