It doesn’t often happen but when it does, it is quite special. Let’s hope it will be the golden opportunity for someone for whom an unexpected treat – peace, quiet and total comfort might be worth more than any present, hover lavish, bought in a shop.
We have suddenly woken up to the fact that Douglas’s Barn is still available this coming weekend. What an opportunity for someone so highly organised that they can go away at the drop of a hat. We know they exist even if we ourselves do not belong in that category. The normal price is £375 but we have taken a deep breath and have reduced it to £275: to the mathematically minded, a reduction of 26.66%. People on our Reserve List and returning guests are offered the weekend at £255.
Now you can probably get a whole week for this price if you want a bargain basement deal – here is not the place to find rock bottom quality/rock bottom prices. We do not expect you to have to rough it in any way. Our principle is that you should find your surroundings quite as comfortable as you would at home, if not better, because you are here to relax with no responsibilities! In both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns you can take for granted that it will be spotless, and warm, the bed will be comfortable, the sheets and towel top quality and so on. We hope you’ll lack for nothing.
Now, just for fun I am hoping to be able to produce a preview of some of our new photographs that our webman Jeremy Brough took a couple of weeks ago (it isn’t very kind because he hasn’t yet adjusted them for public viewing) in a grid at the bottom of the page that another wise and ‘webby’ friend, Mike A has tried to show me how. Let’s hope I don’t let either of them down but I already see my grid for some unknown (to me) reason) is somewhat haphazard.
Still, you get the picture… let’s call it superb quirky comfort! And it’s all yours this weekend, at knock down rates!!
Douglas’s Barn is available to book for short breaks 3 or 4 nights between 2 and 20 May 2016. Bookings usually start on a Monday or a Friday but if you want a break that starts on a different day get in touch. We are very flexible with bookings.
There are some new attractions added to the list of treats available with the Premier Cottages special privileges card. Amongst them are Renishaw Hall, Thornbridge Hall Gardens (new discounts), Hassop Station Cafe, Village Green Cafe Eyam, Carsington Water Sports and Leisure, Hartington Cheese Shop.
There are still a few free dates at the end of March/April in both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. Short breaks, 3 or 4 nights, which are not normally available are on offer. Please look at availability and give me a call or book on line.
