Happy Easter from Orchard Farm Parwich

Happy Easter to all our guests, past, present and future. Thought today’s guests in Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn would appreciate special cakes.

Ashbourne’s Thursday Market

Ashbourne’s first ever Thursday market in the new location of Civic Square has got off to a bustling start, with traders turning out early to await their first customers.

The new location, alongside Waitrose off Shaw Croft, is part of a trial to see if new life can be breathed into the Thursday market, which has seen fewer stall-holders every week and occasionally none at all.

Magnolia in full flower

The magnolia at Orchard Farm is in full flower today and is resplendent. Hoping that it is going to keep its flowers if the weather is colder next week.The plum tree is also starting to show a bit of blossom so hoping for a bumper plum crop as there are no plums in the freezer to make lovely jam and plum crumbles. Great weather for the guests all sitting out on he patios getting a bit of early English sun.

RHS Chatsworth update

PEAK’S RHS CHATSWORTH SHOW June 2017 – GARDEN DESIGN REVEALED.
Premier Cottages are one of the sponsers of the Peak District Garden so we are very excited about the design.
Fabulous landscapes and the formal gardens of the area’s many historic houses have inspired official tourist board Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire’s imaginative show garden at the first-ever RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.
RHS Chelsea Flower Show award winning designer Lee Bestall is the creative brain behind the Experience Peak District & Derbyshire Garden, one of a range of innovative floral features that will be visited by tens of thousands of visitors between 7 and 11 June 2017.
Lee, whose business Bestall & Co is based at Renishaw Hall & Gardens in north Derbyshire, has focused on the health-promoting and mood-boosting benefits of fresh air and fantastic views in his simple, yet striking design.
Rough grass, native trees and hand-painted cows representing the area’s landscapes lead through to the clipped topiary and herbaceous planting favoured by the Peak District and Derbyshire’s great country houses.
“We’re delighted with Lee’s design, which reflects the huge variety of the area’s natural and man-made landscapes and gardens in a relatively small space,” said tourist board Director Jo Dilley.
“Interest from visitors in the first-ever RHS Chatsworth Flower Show is high, and it will be a great opportunity to showcase the Peak District and Derbyshire to tens of thousands of people from both Britain and overseas.

Douglas’s Barn for a last minute get away break

Spring may not quite be here but it is a great time to for a visit to the Peak District. The weather has been quite mild here and although we have had some mixed weather, guests are still enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The evenings are getting longer and the countryside is starting to take on its springtime appearance. Douglas’s Barn is very warm and cosy and just the place for a quiet get away. The prices are being held at January rates until the 24 March so why not treat yourself to a few days away.

Time to book a spring break

‘Doris’ has just blown through and no damage at Orchard Farm Parwich. The days are getting longer. the spring flowers are starting to poke their heads through, the snowdrops are in full bloom at Hopton Hall so why not treat yourselves to a few days away. There are still a few days available in Tom’s Barn before the end of April but more choice of days in Douglas’s Barn. This barn is warm and cosy and there is plenty of space to relax in. The jaccuzzi bath is delightful after a days activity. There are plenty of places to wander to from Parwich and the newly refurbished pub offers a good menu so why not treat yourself to a few days away in the Peak District.

It may be cold outside

It may be cold outside but it is a great time to visit Parwich. We have had some lovely frosts and the cosy barns are a great place to come back to after a nice stroll around the Peak District. Douglas’s Barn has an electric fire to give instant heat, not that you should need it with the central heating, and Tom’s Barn has a lovely log burner to toast your toes by. Dates are filling up but still plenty to go for. Short break are available all year. Just give us a call if you can’t find what you are looking for.

Happy New Year to you all – our 3rd here!

Happy New Year to you all. We are about to celebrate the start of our 3rd year as the owners of Orchard Farm and Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. We are still loving every minute of it and really enjoying all the lovely people and dogs that come to stay in the Barns. This year by we are changing our policy on short breaks. Previously these were limited between October and Easter but people’s lifestyles seem to be changing with more short breaks being taken. In response to this we have decided to offer short break throughout the year. Hopefully this will still allow those that want a longer break to be able to book them. If you can not find what you want available on the calendar or you are looking to book in on a different day or need a shorter break than usual please give us a call to discuss.
