And here are the comments from our recent guests in Douglas’s Barn…
“The accommodation is beautiful, the setting superb. We have really enjoyed our stay here.” April 2010
“Our stay here has been truly relaxing: lovely weather, lovely cottage, perfect hosts. What more could you ask for?” April 2010
“Losing track of how many times we have been here now – beginning to feel a little possessive! Having left a little black and white cat in Birmingham, Boots made us feel even more at home. We found her patiently waiting by the door after our lie-ins! Hope the next guests aren’t allergic…” April 2010
“Our first time in Douglas’s Barn (but sixth visit overall)…enjoyed lazy walks by the Dove, north from Milldale and south from Hartington. … Excellent weather and a very peaceful and comfortable break. Thank you for all the comforts in Douglas’s Barn.” April 2010
“Had a great week, cottage was superb, cake and marmalade delicious! The village pub and shop was very accommodating. The Bluebell Inn (Tissington) was very good, the Old Gate at Brassington – very good meal, friendly staff but a bit dark and smokey (coal fire).” April 2010
“A wonderful, relaxing anniversary break. Everything we could have wanted and more! Thank you, lovely to meet you both, and Boots.” March 2010
“More than met our expectations after reading up on TripAdvisor etc! Cake and flowers lovely, as is the cottage and Peak District. We will be back, and writing our own review on TripAdvisor. Thanks to you and Janet.” March 2010
“You really have thought of everything to make Douglas’s Barn perfect. No wonder couples who want time away, choose here. Those extra touches really do make a difference. Thank you both of you.” March 2010
“Second visit to Douglas’s Barn, which is as wonderful as ever! We managed a couple of cycle rides – coming back from the cold to luxury and comfort. We loved every minute. Thank you!” March 2010
“Wonderful home away from home. Glorious weather for exploring hills and dales. Lived up to all expectation and beyond – many thanks.” March 2010
