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 do know that at least one other review has been sent to TripAdvisor but that one must be circling round Durham Cathedral rooftops – it never reached our site, anyway! 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!).

Peak District Premier Cottages contributed to the sponsorship of the Experience Peak District garden which won a Silver Gilt medal. […]
The Eroica Festival will be taking place at Friden Grange between the 16 and 18 June 2017. This is one of the most popular events in the cycling and festival calendars and Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns are ideally placed being only 5 miles from the venue. You do not even need to get in the […]
