Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Douglas’s Barn: ‘This place is a gem’.

Now here as promised are the latest comments from our guests, gleaned this summer from the Visitors’ Book in Douglas’s Barn.

In many ways, Douglas’s Barn is the ‘dark horse’, dwelling with quiet dignity beside  the older, better-known dog-friendly holiday cottage, Tom’s Barn. It has been going just four years. Its name is not reflected in our website and as you know Douglas’s Barn does not take dogs.  However, it has a loyal band of followers and has an even higher occupancy rate (99% last financial year) than its older sibling! Tom’s was 95% (still excellent!)

“Our 4th visit and just as wonderful as the previous three. Our usual good weather was the icing on the cake! Thanks so much to John, Marion, Janet and Boots and see you all in 2011.” July 2010

“What a perfect way to spend out first week of marriage! This place is a gem and we definitely want to come back! The weather, place, amenities and people have all been wonderful. Thank you John and Marion!” July 2010

“It’s great to return after six years (NB they stayed last time in Tom’s Barn!) and find everything as wonderful as we remembered. We’ve had an action week of walking and cycling and have enjoyed returning to the peace and tranquillity of Orchard Farm and the comforts of Douglas’s Barn.

Thank you John and Marion for your warm hospitality and all the ‘little extras’, especially the seriously good Bakewell Tart.” June 2010

“We have had the most wonderful stay here – beautiful surroundings, fabulous cottage and warm hospitality…” June 2010

“A wonderful stay again. I can’t contribute to the suggestions book as everything is just perfect. Many many thanks to you all.” June 2010

“Excellent accommodation, extremely well-equipped, superb location!” May 2010

“The perfect place to relax and unwind. Cakes were delicious. Thanks for all you do to make this cottage so special.” May 2010

“Wonderfully relaxing holiday in the best-equipped cottage we’ve had the pleasure of staying in. Bath is a real help in easing the aches from the delightful walks which abound.” May 2010
