The results, the scores and comments, have given us confidence because the average score never dips much below 9.5/10.
We have been grateful to pick up some hints of what might be improved, and have as far as possible acted on these, most notably replacing the beds; the Tom’s Barn bed had been superb but we had not realised that it had begun to pass its prime. The outcome, a Vi-spring bed and mattress in Tom’s Barn and a specially commissioned Vi-spring mattress for the slightly wider/longer bed in Douglas’s Barn.
We have acted also on suggestions of extra ‘little extras’ we could provide, such as an apron, tasting teaspoons, a thermos, a really sharp knife.
Due to unforeseen circumstances Tom’s Barn is now available 24 June to 1 July 2016.
Douglas’s Barn is available to book for short breaks 3 or 4 nights between 2 and 20 May 2016. Bookings usually start on a Monday or a Friday but if you want a break that starts on a different day get in touch. We are very flexible with bookings.
There are some new attractions added to the list of treats available with the Premier Cottages special privileges card. Amongst them are Renishaw Hall, Thornbridge Hall Gardens (new discounts), Hassop Station Cafe, Village Green Cafe Eyam, Carsington Water Sports and Leisure, Hartington Cheese Shop.
