Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Tom’s Barn Abroad

A Cornish Swallow on the Little White Alice pool

Don’t get us wrong. We just love the Peak District, and thoroughly appreciate being in such a beautiful part of the world which is so easily accessed from all corners of Britain. We wouldn’t swop it for the world but John and I both have long and happy family connections with the west country – mainly Devon but (ssh, don’t whisper it abroad in Devon) we love Cornwall too. When daughter Ruthie told us that the choir she sings with were planning a tour in Cornwall over the Bank Holiday weekend we needed no second bidding.

Much as we hate leaving home (we always feel bad not being here when our guests are) the groupie/Cornwall instincts took over. We immediately booked a holiday cottage and are happy to pass on a good tip. if ever any of you are looking for a romantic cottage for two of course please look at Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. However, if you are heading to Cornwall we aren’t anyway near so can’t help. I am sure there are hundreds of lovely cottages there but we would have no hesitation recommending you look at another Premier Cottage property,  Little White Alice

Little White Alice is very new, very ecologically ‘green’ and very attractive. There are seven cottages I think, a natural pool and a wood-fired hot tub, so very different from us but – swings and roundabouts and all that – we are both super but very different and in very different parts of the world so neither of us need have any fears from the other and we are very happy to recommend Simon and Rosie’s cottages whole heartedly.

I didn’t set off the write a blurb for Little White Alice but it sort of took over. Tomorrow I will let you know what we have been doing on our time off – more puffs for Cornwall and things Cornish! And a big puff for the Addison Singers. They are the greatest!

(Just listened to the weather forecast for tomorrow – not good- so plans for a trip to St Michael’s Mount may be jettisoned…)
