Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Five Stars again, for 2009-2010

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
