I have been trying for days to upload a (small) map showing which parts of the country all our guests come from. So far success has eluded me so instead we are going to show you two rather lovely Parwich pictures.
John got up early this to capture some peaceful morning scenes after a wonderful cleat, crisp and frosty night with the most enormous full moon, apparently nearer the earth than it has been for 20 years…
In spite of cheerfully dire predictions about the inevitable effect this proximity of the moon might have, today dawned as peacefully as any other for us lucky people in this little corner of the world. With all the ghastly things that are going on elsewhere the tranquillity and beauty seems all the more fragile and special.
So many of our guests come from busier parts of the country (back to our map…!) and the peace and quiet is something they all remark upon and appreciate.
The following is a small extract from a delightful email we received earlier this week: “Tom’s Barn was so welcoming and comfortable without being pretentious that (my husband) instantly relaxed, something that he finds tricky!! We were so taken by the peace and lack of light pollution, we live in such a busy part of the country that this made a big impact on us. We felt like we had gone back in time in a very good way.”
As winter seems determined to creep into Spring it seems appropriate to have a post Easter offer. Mid April is a lovely time to start to blow away the cobwebs. What better place to be than a brisk walk or leisurely stroll in the Peak District. The weather will be warmer, can’t be any colder […]
Douglas’s Barn is available for last minute bookings between 2 and 23 March 2018. Why not treat yourself to an early Spring Break in the lovely Peak District. The nights are getting lighter and after the promise of snow this week I am sure spring and the daffodils will be waiting to burst through. Minimum […]
Still chance to surprise you Valentine with a couple of days away in the Peak District. Douglas’s Barn is available for a mid week break. Cake and a romantic barn awaits. Worth sneaking off from work for a couple of nights
