Way back last January the local Peak District Premier Cottages owners (there are eighteen of us, all with Five and top-level Four Star Holiday cottages) arranged an email campaign to about 6,000 of our joint contacts reminding everyone of the joys of visiting our cottages in the spring. A prize of chocolates and champagne was offered to the first people to book a holiday in any one of our cottages (over 50 between us all).
And we are delighted to say that the first people to book were Michael and Julie, who booked a weekend here in Douglas’s Barn; rather than opting for a spring break, they decided to come here in the late autumn and are staying here now! We didn’t tell them of their prize – so having purchased a box of Belgian chocolates and laid some very nice champagne on ice in Douglas’s Barn we awaited their arrival with some excitement.
Of course they were fairly amazed, and very delighted. They admitted that they, like probably most of us, usually mistrusted tempting promises of prizes such as this, so they were delighted to discover that when Premier promises things they do happen!
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.
