The internet was re connected yesterday so I am happy to report that we are back on line here in this lovely Peak District village. A big thank you to all our lovely guests that have been very understanding about the lack of internet. To make it even better the weather has been lovely here today, all the spring flowers are out, the lambs bleating in the fields, longer days and a little bit of warmth coming through. Still some availability in Douglas’s Barn for the rest of April. Why not treat yourself to a few days away in this idyllic spot. Happy Easter to all our guests past and present and too all those hoping to join us in the future.

Come and see for yourselves, and make the most of it with a stay in Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. Robert and myself are thoroughly enjoying life in Parwich and its surroundings and totally agree with it being one of the best places to live. We look forward to meeting all the lovely people that visit the barns as well as getting to know the people who live in this lovely village.
To top it all there is a welcoming village pub, The Sycamore, that has earned its place in the Good Food Guide 2015.
There are still some short breaks available to book in Douglas’s Barn before the peak season starts early April or why not experience a longer stay in one of our lovely peak district cottages.
We have had such a mixture of weather here over the last week but the sun has still managed to shine most days. This weekend saw the return of snow showers but we still managed a lovely walk with our friends from Monyash to Alport and back down Lathkill Dale. A welcoming cup of tea and a toasted teacake in Monyash was just what was the perfect end to the day’s activities.
The BT communication challenge continues in this idyllic spot but thanks to the BT hotspots around and free WiFi in all sorts of establishments it is business as usual for us. Our next review is the 2 March 2015 so I am keeping my fingers crossed for a successful broadband connection. Meanwhile the barns are continuing to get booked up so if you are hopefully thinking about booking it is worthwhile doing it now.We have received great feedback comments from the lovely people that have stayed in the barns since we took over. All very encouraging for us as the new owners.
Hello everyone our BT communication challenge in this romantic setting is still ongoing but there is some progress in that we have a telephone number that people can at least speak to us on. The number that BT have assigned to us is 01335 390 134. We are still facing the challenge of trying to get the internet re installed in our little Peak District haven and hopefully at the BT summit talks on Friday 20 February discussions may result in the capacity issues being resolved. We can but hope. In the meantime it is business as usual, Since we moved in we have had lots of visitors to the barns and the reviews are great. A big thank you to Marion for holding my hand for a month ensuring that what people have come to expect from the barns is still being delivered but now with a new face and a new smile.
