Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Tom’s Barn Mystery Shoppers

Not so mysterious after all, but we are taking the quality research very seriously.

We’ve always loved both our barns, and it felt really lovely staying there last night, quite cocooned from the real world and feeling very relaxed and holidayish.

We tried another telephone on the line and that doesn’t work either, so what a relief – although it is still embarrassing – it looks as if we can blame BT rather than the cottage owners.

We’ve tried the bath, again, and absolutely no complaints there (there never have been!). The shower fitting will never hit the headlines (in  a good way, anyway) but we’ve known all along that we can’t do anything about it. It’s a pity it isn’t slightly more forcefully invigorating but for a not-power-shower it just passes muster.

John did a fry up for breakfast (don’t worry, Janet, we cleaned up immaculately after ourselves!). Everything was fine except we could not find the frying pan!! So had to use a small saute pan instead which did  the job but where is the frying pan?

We’re trying the slow-cooker for the first time tonight. I must admit the kitchen is well equipped and I found it easier than I do in our bigger kitchen at home, because everything (apart from the frying pan) is close to hand.

We went as planned to the White Peak Butchery for the meat (buying some Tissington Bangers at the same time) so the meat will be the best it could possibly be but I am beginning to get cold feet – hope I haven’t been too ambitious with the plans for tonight. Time will tell – more later.
