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!!
We have just moved the outside tap to a new position which is lot more accessible for the guests. Great for washing boots, dogs and bikes.
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 […]
‘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 […]
