What you won’t find at Tom’s Barn & Douglas’s Barn

  • Traffic noise
  • Trains – the nearest stations (Derby and Chesterfield) are 20 miles away
  • Frequent bus service (a few buses daily, mainly to Ashbourne)
  • Gas – Our heating is by oil – plus logs in Tom’s Barn; cooking etc by electricity
  • Ashtrays – although you can smoke outside
  • Deep fat fryer
  • A wild nightlife
  • Pizza/takeaways etc – but Ashbourne 7 miles away is easily reached if necessary
  • Children – there might be local ones playing in the distance occasionally
  • Lavish drapes and fancy swags
  • Under-floor heating (so the tiles downstairs might be cool for bare feet in winter)
  • Slippers – we do supply toweling bathrobes for your use but not slippers
  • Notices everywhere telling you what you can and can’t do
  • Hidden extras and nasty last-minute surprise bills
  • A cold dark cottage with keys left under the mat for your arrival
