Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent location for visiting Cheshire and Peak District. The cleanliness and standard of the furniture and fittings in the cottage could not be faulted and Brenda was very helpful. Outdoor space not private.

Absolutely fantastic property and location, Brenda, the host was very helpful throughout the booking process and during our three week stay, she really couldn’t do enough for us. Swallows Barn is easily accessible from Congleton with a short drive through Buglawton and was a home from home on our stay.

We stayed at the cottage for a long weekend for a wedding at Heaton House wedding venue. We had a super time and the cottage was so comfortable and lovely. Barbara is such a lovely lady and was so welcoming. We would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to return some time again

Really lovely accommodation, very comfortable and very clean. The cottage had everything you would need to make you feel welcome, and your stay a home from home; even down to the small things like fresh flowers on the table when we arrived. Brenda, the host, was easy to contact with any questions we had and replied quickly. We would definitely stay here again.

Great holiday
The cottage was modern inside comfortable and spotlessly clean. Brenda the owner was friendly and helpful. The surrounding countryside is beautiful.

Absolutely perfect
I can’t say enough good things about the farm. The rental was gorgeous and impeccably done. The farm was scenic and pleasant. We stepped out in the morning with some coffee and watched the sheep grazing in the field. Most of the animals were out in farther pastures and with the rain we didn’t see too many more, but had it dried up we would have walked the area more. The owners were friendly and not at all intrusive. We bumped into our hosts one morning and had a long nice conversation about the property and history as well as some new projects he had going on around the farm. Beautiful property and accommodations. Thanks for a great stay.

Not as pictured
The picture makes the place look very special. You don’t see the dilapidated barns and broken windows just out of the picture. We also saw no evidence of the advertised “working farm,” other than an unhappy, chained up border collie . This was the first time in a 2week trip,that we were not welcomed by the owner with a sweet treat of homemade cake or cookies. In fact, she wasn’t even there when we finally arrived, having drive. Back and forth on the road for an hour because the veto website didn’t identify the property correctly. Don’t look for swallows barn, you will never find it.

A hidden gem with 5* Hosts
If you are looking for a home from home cottage holiday set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside, we highly recommend Colley Farm Cottages. We were lucky enough to stay in both cottages (the Farmhouse cottage and Swallows barn) each one with its own unique charm, both well equipped, sparkling clean, with everything you need for a long stay (and a good nights sleep in the comfiest beds!) There are plenty of attractions near by, we enjoyed a walk up Bossly Cloud and a picnic in the walled garden at ‘Hare Hill.’ Brenda and Tom are fantastic hosts and they were a big part of what made our holiday 5* From check-in to check-out they were always just a text or a knock next door away and will go that extra mile for anyone. We would 100% book again and checking out the guest book of glowing reviews lots of guests return each year.
