Don’t worry if you have either forgotten or have been leaving it to the last moment wondering what to do? A solution – your salvation – might be at hand. You’ve only one mother, or mother of your children and she deserves the best. Mothering Sunday is on Sunday, if you need reminding and what could be a better present than a weekend in Douglas’s Barn. Check Availability or book here.
We don’t take children, and Douglas’s Barn only sleeps two so for the sake of the exercise we’ll assume either that your loving children have given their mother the weekend and she has of course chosen their father to accompany her, or it could be a grateful partner wanting to acknowledge his love for the mother of their children with a present which neither would ever forget…
However you choose to spend your time, you will return home wonderfully refreshed and revitalised. What could be a better present for anyone than that?
It would be one of those presents with almost limitless ‘added value’ (one day I am going to write a post about jargon, cliches and the like but not today…). The basic gift is three nights in a wonderfully comfortable and well-equipped holiday cottage: you could just stay put and enjoy the luxury of time on your own together, generally chilling, listening to music, reading books, watching videos, surfing the internet on the Netbook, enjoying good food and just switching off for the whole weekend.
On the other hand you could pack a lot in, with walks, sightseeing (Chatsworth reopens this weekend), trips to local pubs or restaurants to enjoy some delicious local food and real ale, mooching round excellent bookshops or antique shops and generally making the most of your precious time.
Only Douglas’s Barn is free so you can’t bring a dog. The all-inclusive price is £295 and if you can’t make this weekend, you can always celebrate Mothering Sunday in a fortnight’s time, for the weekend of March 22, at the same rate.
