Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn join Friends of the Peak

We have recently as a business joined Friends of the Peak. This charity is run and managed by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and its aim is to safeguard the landscapes of Britain’s first and most beautiful national park.
They challenge and campaign against developments that threaten the Peak District’s beauty and tranquillity.They support homes for local people, sustainable jobs and local services.
Climate change is the biggest threat to our countryside and Friends of the Peak champion suitable renewable energy, environmental building design and green transport schemes in the national park.

In support of the charity we have added an optional extra for our guests, at the time of booking, to donate £1 to support the Peak Pound Partnership which helps to raise funds for the work to protect and enhance the Peak District landscape and support rural communities. In addition there are collecting tins in the barns for people to donate small change.
More details about the Friends of The Peak and there work can be found at www.friendsofthepeak.org.uk

Spring clean in the barns

Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn have been closed this week for a complete repaint and spring clean. The painters have already completed Douglas’s Barn and Janet and Louise have worked their magic to get it all spruced up and ready for business again. Tom’s Barn will be open again next Friday and Douglas’s is available for a last minute break. Both barns are starting to get busy so worth booking early to avoid disappointmentIMG_0646[1]

Monsal Trail has been voted the UK’s favourite cycle route. We have 2 bikes and helmets that our guests can use. Monsal is just one of the many safe cycle routes around here.

An engagement in the barns

Its has been a very romantic weekend in Douglas’s Barn. I decorated the barn at one of the guests request setting the scene for a surprise marriage proposal which was a definite YES!. So nice to see two very happy people and to have shared their happiness. Wishing them all the best for the future.image2

Bookings now being taken for 2016. Prices held!

Good news, you can start planning for those special breaks away in 2016. The calendar has been updated with the 2016 dates and even more good news is that the prices are going to remain the same for next year. For those that prefer Douglas’s Barn, or those that are yet to experience a stay there, it is being offered at a slightly less price for most weeks. The same discount of approximately 5% is still being given for returning guests. Terms and conditions remain the same. Looking forward as ever to meeting all our guests.

Awards for Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns

Following re assessment we are delighted that Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns have been awarded a rating of Five Stars by Visit England.I addition they have both achieved a Gold Award for exceptional quality of accommodation and customer service. This is a real boost for us and confirms that the quality standards that Marion and John worked so hard to achieve are being maintained.

Parwich ‘One of the best place to live in Britain’!

According to the Sunday Times, Parwich is one of the best 50 places to live in Britain!

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.
