About Swiers Farmhouse

Swiers Farmhouse sleeps eighteen guests and is located in the picturesque village of Carsington in the Peak District National Park. The farmhouse provides tastefully furnished, well equipped, character holiday accommodation that is perfect for a large family get together, reunion of friends or for those looking for a venue to celebrate a special occasion. Stag and Hen parties welcome.

Carsington is a superb base from which to explore the Peak District and its many attractions including Carsington Water which is only a few minutes away from Swiers Farmhouse. Beautiful Chatsworth House, the popular market town of Bakewell, Hardwick and also Haddon Hall, and Alton Towers (popular with the younger ones) are also within easy reach.

The village location makes the Swiers Farmhouse perfect for strolling down the lane to the pub of a lunchtime or evening where you can enjoy good local ale and food. Afterwards, why not stretch your legs and take a short walk to Carsington Water.

There are plenty of fabulous walks from the door and for the more energetic you can enjoy a walk or cycle around Carsington Water (eight miles) in the fabulous wildlife haven around the lake (which also offers excellent water sports).

There are many things to do and see in this lovely area including: canoeing, fishing, birdwatching, walking, cycling, golf, horse riding, rock climbing, sailing and windsurfing to name just a few.
