A Guest Comments on our Blog

(By way of explanation, Derek and Jenny stayed here last year and are returning again soon. While they were staying here they met our then vicar, Christopher Harrison, and one lazy warm evening last year the five of us shared a glass or two of wine sitting outside Tom’s Barn. You can get an idea [...]

New Cooker for Tom's Barn

How frustrating! Having spent most of Friday afternoon trying to get to grips with the brand new and frighteningly modern electric cooker we were all set to announce this latest excitement (and of course answer a dozen or so emails) when our server went down… All is restored now, and there are now dozens of [...]

Parwich Primary School Sleepover

A delightful sight met our eyes last night as we came out of our Pilates Class (until the new Memorial Hall is built our classes are held in one of the school rooms). Thronging up the road towards the school, accompanied by their parents, were all the school pupils, pink and washed and in their [...]
