About the neighbourhood
The village of Slaithwaite boasts of places well worth a visit, from the Handmade Bakery to the Green Valley Grocer (ideal to stock up on essentials ahead of a family meal in the cottage). There are plenty of places to pick up great value food and drink, including Aldi and the Co-op, as well as a post office, swimming pool and leisure centre and a train station in the village centre offering convenient links to the surrounding area. Here are some other places worth a visit in the village and surrounding area. The Emporium/The Gallery - Vintage clothes and finds along with a Gallery displaying local work.

Getting around
Swallows Nest is only a few minuets drive from the village centre. If venturing further afield we are less than 10 minuets from the M62. You can drive in the opposite direction and be in Derbyshire within 30 minuets. If you are coming by train the station is in the village and there are taxis available. Should you wish to walk the uphill walk is very scenic (much faster back down).
