And just what is a blog, we’ve been asked? And why do you need something when you’ve already got a website?
Well, we probably don’t really but we are very excited all the same at the idea of having the two different species running side by side, complementing each other.
As we see it our Tom’s Barn website provides the more conventional, factual element, with information provided by us, which we hope will give guests and others a real insight into our holiday cottages and what to expect.
On the other hand, the Blog & Gallery will be the more dynamic section of the same site. Here you will find latest news from us and input from guests and friends, constantly changing as the things evolve. There will also be masses (eventually) of photos from John and others.
We hope that guests will also share tips and suggestions for the benefit of others guests – and us – about good walks, lovely restaurants and wonderful pubs; we have already had two guests keen to share successful recipes for the slow cooker ‘crockpot’. Watch this page!

The next lecture in this series will appear after Christmas… Bloggers forget that it is all rather overwhelming to he uninitiated; we’re only a couple of steps ahead of that ourselves but years of enjoying the Parwich Blog has helped initiate us, slightly. It has certainly taught us what fun they are.

There are still a few days available in Tom’s […]
It may be cold outside but it is a great time to visit Parwich. We have had some lovely frosts and the cosy barns are a great place to come back to after a nice stroll around the Peak District. Douglas’s Barn has an electric fire to give instant heat, not that you should need […]
