All being well, you should now be able to book your holiday for 2011 online. There has been some pressure on us to do this as so much of this year had already gone by the end of February.
However, as always we accept all bookings for the forthcoming year at the current year’s prices so until midnight on Dec 31st 2010 the increase can be avoided completely by booking ahead.
We have pondered and agonised; finally we have taken a deep breath and decided on the prices for next year – a scary proposition because who knows what global financial/economic crises may be lurking in the wings.
With only the skimpiest of business backgrounds (if one wanted to make a killing teaching was never the career to choose…) we always feel anxious putting prices up but there is no getting round it, one’s costs increase all the time. We are also going to increase the cost for dogs to £25; much as we love well-behaved dogs and their owners there is no denying they do create a lot of extra work.
Finally, we are always delighted to take bookings on the phone so please continue to book this way if you prefer the human contact. However, we do know that lots of busy people far prefer to do it quickly and efficiently, online. At last this is now possible for 2011 too.
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.
There are still a few free dates at the end of March/April in both Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns. Short breaks, 3 or 4 nights, which are not normally available are on offer. Please look at availability and give me a call or book on line.
