“Absolutely shattered!” “I feel so stressed!” Work has been a nightmare!”
See how Richard and Joanna enjoyed relaxing with their two Cairns last week:
“How hard it was to leave Orchard Farm, Toms Barn was everything we had hoped for and much more.
What a fantastic location, buttercup meadows, wildflowers and peace. Great walks of course and great pubs especially the Old Gate at Brassington, The George at Alstonefield, both happy to accept dogs… “.
“And now we are simply going to chill out, relax and do nothing.” When our guests arrive here they often confide how exhausted they feel, how stressed and overworked, how in need of a complete break from all outside pressures.
Their dream is to completely switch off , with time miraculously theirs to do with what they will. And this is surprisingly easy to achieve. Both our barns have a delightful aura of calm where it is all too easy to forget that any other world exists.
After a few days doing nothing much in the peace and quiet surrounding them it doesn’t take long usually before they start feeling a bit more energetic and keen to explore the area, take a few walks, sample a few local pubs.This is all part of relaxing.
We are always glad to hear from our guests about where they’ve been and what they have enjoyed – or not, as the case may be. It helps us when we are recommending to new guests before they arrive, and also, we know that many others log onto the blog to see what’s new and what people have enjoyed doing.
Even having lived in the area some time now, we are still constantly amazed how much there is to do locally and end up wishing we were permanently on holiday ourselves so we could spend more time following up some of the recommendations guests make; perhaps we’re not so keen on the gliding lessons someone recommended earlier but hiring a boat and having a picnic on Carsington sounds just the ticket!

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 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 […]
