Of ourse, no doubt like all holiday cottages owners, we want them both to be the best. Like all fond parents we think they are the best. We have tried to make them the kind of place we would like to stay in ourselves …
And what is that?
We want going away to be a treat, better than home (and we most of us have quite high standards these days).
We hope to come back retored and refreshed. We want to have a complete break, free from worry; having arrived we don’t want to be fussing abut paying extra for anything, or making do without something.
We want to be sure everything is spotlessly clean, that the bedding and towels are top quality and that everything that we might possibly need has been provided.
We want to feel welcomed and valued (not just a body paying for a bed) comfortable, warm and secure, in a cottage that itself feels cheerful and welcoming and not gloomy and cold.
We’d like to be somewhere rural but not too far from good food and interesting things to see and do. Attractive walks from the door, a villlage pub and a shop within walking distance all these wouold be an added bonus.
Not much to demand you may think…! But actually we do hope we have succeeded. Many of these qualities you will find in our two barns simply because of our having the good fortune to live in a lovely place in a beautiful Peak Park village setting. The rest we have done our best to provide for you.
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.
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.
