What a treat for someone!
Do you fancy a memorable week in Douglas’s Barn at the end of the year, seeing out 2010 and welcoming 2011?
We have just learned this evening that the week is unexpectedly available again, having been booked for months by the same couple as came last year and had so wanted to repeat their happy time.
Unfortunately they suddenly find themselves unable to come here after all and we – having turned away goodness knows how many enquiries – are suddenly faced with a prime blank week on offer. What a chance for someone!
Our New Year week this year goes from Wed 29 December until Wed 5 January. The price, all found, is £555; we don’t on principle put the price up from our normal High Season rate for Christmas, New Year or indeed any of our Bank Holidays.
We would normally advertise the fact on our website too, but my laptop has been in a prolonged internet sulk since the Apple Macs arrived and refuses to connect in spite of all inducements. At present the laptop is the only computer from which we can edit the main website, as against the blog which is in WordPress so the only thing we can do is to tell the world via our blog…
That will all change the minute Jeremy our webman returns home from Spain (next week) and moves the whole website over to WordPress, but, meanwhile, we are left powerless and unable to write a single word on the website.
It will be intriguing to see how long we wait before the week is snaffled up. It is a bit late but there is always likely to be someone who hasn’t found that perfect place yet and Douglas’s Barn might just turn out to be what they were waiting for. Let’s hope so.
It has been really hot here as it has in most parts of the country. We are getting ready for Open Gardens next Sunday, 25 June 2017. The rose above the stone barn has prolific blooms that we are hoping will still be there at the end of the week. Lots of hot air balloons […]
Chatsworth House played host to RHS flower show for the 1st time this year. The setting is delightful and the show gardens all very natural which is lovely to see in this Peak District setting. Peak District Premier Cottages contributed to the sponsorship of the Experience Peak District garden which won a Silver Gilt medal. […]
The Eroica Festival will be taking place at Friden Grange between the 16 and 18 June 2017. This is one of the most popular events in the cycling and festival calendars and Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns are ideally placed being only 5 miles from the venue. You do not even need to get in the […]
