… With Valentine’s day fast approaching, and with both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns having frequently been identified as romantic cottages for two I suppose we shouldn’t have been surprised to find Tom’s Barn selected by Kate Quill of the Times for her list of 18 “Love Nests to Rent” in an article headed “Sexy Places”. (Unfortunately we can’t give you a link to the actual article as we don’t have a subscription to online Times but if you do have it is on Page 4 Sexy Places in the Travel section on Saturday Feb 12th 2011.)
But surprised we were; in fact the first we knew of it was when someone rang to book a week, explaining she had just read about us in the Times. So that’s twice this year already – first in Country Homes and Interiors, with Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns highlighted as one of their four recommended Romantic Getaways and now the Times with their love nests in Sexy Places…
Of course we’re always delighted to have our two cottages recognised and recommended by the press; we just always feel the need to reassure everyone that we love all our guests whatever their ages, and as far as we can tell all our guests – no matter how old or young – love our barns. They are a highly attractive destination for couples of any age.
We never ask people’s ages, but we get a wonderful spread from early twenties to mid to late 80’s, from 21st birthday treats to Golden Wedding celebrations and masses of couples in between. You’re obviously fond of each other and want some happy time together so let’s not be shy – let’s shout abroad about how romantic and sexy Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns are for everybody!
Due to a late cancellation Douglas’s Barn has become available from 23 to 30 October 2017. Full week, Monday to Monday or part week Monday to Friday or Friday to Monday. Late deal rates, 7 day break £495, 3 night weekend, Friday to Monday or 4 day Monday to Friday break £345.
Why not treat yourself to a few days away in the Peak District in Douglas’s or Tom’s Barns. The prices have been reduced from 17 November to 7 December 2016. The days may be shorter but it is great to get out for a few hours for a walk or drive in the lovely countryside. […]
Decided it was time to give the outside of the barns a bit of a face lift. We have replaced all the barn doors, all the exterior has been repainted, new furniture outside and new parasols t shade that lovely sun that we are still getting. A big thank you to all the skilled trade […]
