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.
