Visit Britain’s Gold Award for Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns

Another busy few days for us here since our inspection, including a flying visit to Dorset to help some  very  good friends celebrate a special birthday. Colouring everything has been all the drama of the election and subsequent speculation  and tension surrounding the political future as it unfolded.

It has been like living in a soap without an author; nobody, not even those taking part knowing what the outcome would be. John and I found ourselves compelled almost without a break to watch or listen to the news! However, unlike in most soaps – one couldn’t help feeling impressed by the  dignity   and restraint of the main players and  the moving sight of  Gordon Brown and his little family leaving Downing Street.  Now one just hopes that Cameron and Clegg and their team will be allowed to get on with their hugely unpleasant job without the media beginning immediately to undermine them.

To quote from the Visit Britain website, “This award reflects a very high level of quality. Properties achieving the Gold Award have exceptional levels of quality, comfort and cleanliness in bedrooms and bathrooms, and outstanding levels of customer care.”

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we have had some good news tonight: both barns easily retain their Five Star status, both now achieving a Gold Award.

We are really delighted. But don’t think for one moment that we will sit back and rest on those laurels. We are only too aware that standards increase and guests’ expectations change and we always try to keep one step ahead. This is one reason we so appreciate comments and suggestions from all our guests.
