It’s been a busy few days and today has not exactly been a rest cure, but we got there thanks to a lot of effort all round: new carpet, ‘new’ paintwork, everything that can be washed/sent to the dry cleaners has been washed/recovered from the dry cleaners and our Friday guests are safely and we hope happily gathered in luxuriating in all the newness…
John took about 20 photos yesterday (Friday) evening when we were finished and they are all to be seen – in a somewhat random piggledy piddledy fashion (and as yet untitled) in the blog gallery. Here are one or two tasters. For those of you who haven’t visited within the past year, the most obvious new things are the oak tables and the carpet; you can’t really tell about the redecoration because this year we have stuck with the same Farrow and Ball colours – Slipper Satin on the walls and Old White on the woodwork. (Year after year we stick in Douglas’s Barn with Matchstick on the walls and Buff on the woodwork because we seem to have struck lucky first time; with Tom’s Barn we have had several attempts before finding what we like now.)
John’s photos were taken in poor light but they give a good idea of Tom’s Barn generally, and not just the new bits. We always try to keep everything absolutely spotless but everything is even more spotless having been cleaned/washed/polished and dry-cleaned…!
We have just moved the outside tap to a new position which is lot more accessible for the guests. Great for washing boots, dogs and bikes.
Spring may not quite be here but it is a great time to for a visit to the Peak District. The weather has been quite mild here and although we have had some mixed weather, guests are still enjoying the beautiful surroundings. The evenings are getting longer and the countryside is starting to take on […]
‘Doris’ has just blown through and no damage at Orchard Farm Parwich. The days are getting longer. the spring flowers are starting to poke their heads through, the snowdrops are in full bloom at Hopton Hall so why not treat yourselves to a few days away. There are still a few days available in Tom’s […]
