Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns Access Statement

Introduction

Our Access Statement is an attempt to provide a clear and honest picture of our holiday accommodation at Orchard Farm, so that potential guests can assess for themselves whether either barn would be a suitable or happy choice for their own particular needs.

Our two self catering cottages for two, Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn, are very attractive, and very popular, in a beautiful area popular particularly with walkers.

Delightful as they are,  there is no denying their unsuitability for anyone with mobility problems or very poor vision, or anyone totally dependent on public transport and other amenities.

 

When you have read the statement below, please do not hesitate to ring us up to discuss any queries you might have, or what we might be able to do to enable you to be able to enjoy a stay here.

 

We converted both cottages from redundant 18C barns attached to our own house which is situated on the edge of a very quiet rural Peak Park village seven miles from the nearest town, Ashbourne.

The possibilities available to us when converting the barns were significantly limited by:

We have therefore always acknowledged, albeit with very real regret, our limited appeal and/or suitability for a sizeable proportion of the population. Neither barn is suitable for:

Each barn has one bedroom, with one king size bed, upstairs:
