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.

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!
