This post was originally written in Sept 09; we now have had three comments and all being well will soon have a few more!
The Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn TripAdvisor entry is live at last, and we are no longer listed as being in Teeside, which is a help! It certainly confused people, including us. And another milestone – we have now had a review. We eventually discovered who wrote it, lovely guests who are have just booked their next visit for February. Thank you both very much! We always get such wonderfully warm and appreciative comments to us privately, and in our Visitors’ Books, and now also, anonymous ones on the Visitrac questionnaire; however, these are all very discreet and not aired publicly, so it feels good to have a TripAdvisor comment and let’s hope it will spur others on to action!

We have asked several of our many overseas guests (lovely Australian ones mainly but no doubt it applies to many other nationalities as well) how their fellows down under would find somewhere in England to stay and TripAdvisor seems the place they’d look so you’d be actually helping them find somewhere nice (or at least that’s what we sincerely hope you’d feel!).
Good news, you can start planning for those special breaks away in 2016. The calendar has been updated with the 2016 dates and even more good news is that the prices are going to remain the same for next year. For those that prefer Douglas’s Barn, or those that are yet to experience a stay […]
