Tom’s & Douglas’s Barns’ Big Extra:

We are often thanked and praised for our ‘little extras’. Indeed we try very hard to think of every little thing possible to make sure that your stay here is very special and just last week we were very involved in setting up the most romantic scene possible for a proposal!

Don’t get the wrong idea. If you stay at Tom’s or Douglas’s Barns we can’t promise a proposal, and realise that the very thought might be enough to terrify many of you away completely.

It’s not often that you can completely escape from normal life, with all its pressures and stresses, and more than one guest has confided to us that the only place they feel really safe and able to relax is Tom’s, or Douglas’s Barns.

What we can promise for everyone is peace, quiet, calm and great comfort, and the invaluable opportunity to be somewhere where you can be yourselves: not someone’s boss or employee, not someone’s son or daughter, not someone’s mother or father. This is more precious than you might realise.

The mobile signal is not brilliant, you have a landline in both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barn but you can choose not to divulge the number. You can really escape – effectively simply disappear.

There’s no traffic noise, no sirens, no police cars: life can completely slow down to your own pace, not one forced upon you. There’s nothing else to concentrate on but yourselves. What will we do today? Where shall we walk? Where shall we eat? Or shall we just stay put and completely relax – chat, read, write, watch, listen, chill…

Talking to some returning guests today, we realise just how incredibly valuable this is. It is a very big ‘little extra’ yet it is invisible and has to be experienced rather than described. Its healing powers are immense.

And we’re just humbly grateful, that thanks to our setting, we can provide our guests with this wonderful ‘big extra’.
