Why Tom?

A former owner of Orchard Farm was Tom, a well-liked village character, but probably not the best farmer in the world and certainly not the most dedicated homemaker. After years of neglect the house and barns were in a seriously awful state.

Marion and John, who bought the farm after Tom died, took over a year just simply getting the house and outbuildings reasonably habitable. They then were able to start on the rather more exciting  transformation of the adjoining cowsheds into top of the range luxury holiday accommodation for two that they are today.

It was at least twenty years before people stopped referring to Orchard Farm as ‘Tom’s place’, hence Tom’s Barn.

Tom’s Barn History

Tom’s Barn now is bright, warm, welcoming and spotlessly clean. It is hard to believe, before they were converted it in 1999, it was the most decrepit and cobweb-festooned old barn you could imagine, unbelievably filthy and smelling pretty unpleasant, too.

Marion and John’s vision was to create top quality holiday accommodation with all modern comforts, whilst remaining as faithful as possible to the original design – this was just as well, as being in the Peak Park one had little choice. They kept as much of the original structure as they could, reusing the original stone where walls had to be repaired and retaining all the old and somewhat misshapen wooden lintels. They equipped the barns with the best they could find, and furnished them with a blend of antique and modern.
