Douglas’s Barn – Some Recent Comments from our Visitors’ Books

Here are some snippets, all taken word for word from the Visitors’ Book this year – there are more but this will do for the moment!

“A wonderful barn with a wonderful welcome – the cake was delicious! Well worth the walk to Tissington for the most tasty sausages. A peaceful and relaxing break…hope to be back in the summer.” Feb 2011

‘Thank you for a wonderful weekend, it has been very special for us. We didn’t know the true meaning of relaxation until we visited. We hope to return soon to this beautiful barn and peaceful little village.” Feb 2011

“I knew this place would be special but the ‘little extras’ really make this time away an exquisite luxury…We’ll be back!” Feb 2011

“:…the cottage was amazing and we have had an amazing few days – a birthday to remember!” Feb 2011

“We have had a gorgeous, restful stay in the most beautiful little cottage. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. We will definitely be back! Thank you!” Feb 2011

“A fantastic cottage in a lovely location! We had a brilliant three days and will definitely return and recommend! Thanks very much for all the lovely touches – really is a lovely place!” Jan 2011

“Our second visit and just as good as last year but with a little less snow! We had a wonderful relaxing break and thanks to Marion and John for their hospitality. We will no doubt return.” Jan 2011

  1. Observation.
    Since you began your excellent web site things have moved on at a pace and it is natural that duplication will take place.
    Originally you used the Home page of your site to report visitors’ comments – Trip Advisor was then used to support the comments- and now you are using your Blog page.
    Sadly Marion you may well run out of steam some days and I was wondering could I suggest that you no longer place them on the front page of your site as they are the entries most likely to be ” a little out of date ”
    Your total information pack revealing the public face of Tom and Douglas Barns always get 11 out 10 from us.
    Best wishes,
    Jenny and Derek

    • Derek, thank you for this – as always, you speak much sense with a most most helpful and constructive suggestion. I can’t envisage running out of steam just yet but who knows – perhaps I am already… I have been feeling very guilty about the sorely needing to be updated comments, and as you imply, keeping them updated is they are just another – however pleasant – thing to remember to do or remember about and worry over not doing.

      Over an editorial meeting of two over an early supper – we both have (separate) village meetings to go to this evening we decided we might perhaps try keeping one NEWish comment on the Home Page and leave all the others to TripAdvisor and our occasional posts on the blog.

      Thanks for the 11/10!
