…How quickly can you move for a treat?
There’s been a lot going on recently, churning out marmalade, buying lots of new bits and bobs – radio/CD player/iPod dock in Tom’s Barn, electric handmixer in Douglas’s barns, the 2013 guides Good Food, Good Pubs, Good Beers, for both cottages, new ironing board in Tom’s Barn and so on, not to mention the tax return which keeps getting shelved until the last minute, as each year…
Also, at last, having waited for genuinely ages, we are having the ‘yard’ redone. A huge (but is it huge enough?) mound of chippings was delivered today; Shaun our builder starts work tomorrow.
So you can sort of understand that we have been a bit slow to realise, and even slower to act upon, the fact that Tom’s Barn has a midweek gap on Monday, and Douglas’s Barn a ten day gap on the 18th. We hate to see them empty, when for so much of the year we are turning away disappointed souls all the time.
We have decided that, for the available gaps in January, we will offer any available short breaks at £275 (plus of course £25 per dog in Tom’s Barn). It would be cheaper for us to have them empty than do it for less. Any available weeks we’ll offer for £415.

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.
There are some new attractions added to the list of treats available with the Premier Cottages special privileges card. Amongst them are Renishaw Hall, Thornbridge Hall Gardens (new discounts), Hassop Station Cafe, Village Green Cafe Eyam, Carsington Water Sports and Leisure, Hartington Cheese Shop.
There are still a few free dates at the end of March/April in both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. Short breaks, 3 or 4 nights, which are not normally available are on offer. Please look at availability and give me a call or book on line.
