We had our annual (except it was only ten or so months since the last one) Visit Britain Quality Assurance Scheme inspection on Thursday June 4. It was conducted by a new to us inspector who was very pleasant, very thorough we felt, and very fair.
So we were somewhat surprised to discover, in spite of numerous ‘improvements’ in Tom’s Barn since the last inspection, that our total score remained the same.
We had been hoping we might notch up another percentage point to get a Gold Award for Tom’s Barn as well as Douglas’s Barn (see paragraph above) but apparently the fact that the cooker in Tom’s Barn is now being outshone by the newness of the fridge and the washer dryer meant we can’t, which seems somewhat tough. We had already indicated that a new cooker was on the agenda for next year but one can only do so much each year. Oh well. At least we still get 100% for cleanliness
We got married at Parwich Church on 16 September 2016 at 12noon so now are Mr and Mrs Roebuck. We had our reception at Tissington Hall followed on the Saturday with a Garden Party at Orchard Farm. Great celebrations lasted for 3 days. Here are a couple of photos
Due to unforeseen circumstances Tom’s Barn is now available 24 June to 1 July 2016.
Douglas’s Barn is available to book for short breaks 3 or 4 nights between 2 and 20 May 2016. Bookings usually start on a Monday or a Friday but if you want a break that starts on a different day get in touch. We are very flexible with bookings.
