What our guests think of us

Tom's and Douglas's Barns entry on TripAdvisor

This post was originally written in Sept 09; we now have had three comments and all being well will soon have a few more!
The Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn TripAdvisor entry is live at last, and we are no longer listed as being in Teeside, which is a help! It certainly confused people, including us. And another milestone – we have now had a review. We eventually discovered who wrote it, lovely guests who are have just booked their next visit for February. Thank you both very much! We always get such wonderfully warm and appreciative comments to us privately, and in our Visitors’ Books, and now also, anonymous ones on the Visitrac questionnaire; however, these are all very discreet and not aired publicly, so it feels good to have a TripAdvisor comment and let’s hope it will spur others on to action! We do know that at least one other review has been sent to TripAdvisor but that one must be circling round Durham Cathedral rooftops – it never reached our site, anyway! We have asked several of our many overseas guests (lovely Australian ones mainly but no doubt it applies to many other nationalities as well) how their fellows down under would find somewhere in England to stay and TripAdvisor seems the place they’d look so you’d be actually helping them find somewhere nice (or at least that’s what we sincerely hope you’d feel!).

  3. Thank you Mary for your comment and thanks for all your help the other day. I didn’t see your comment at first hence my rather slow reply. We’re still finding our way round WordPress too, learning all the time; I’m sure it never stops!

  4. Two more reviews! Thank you Leicestershire Fox and Nichola – this time two we recognised easily! Thank you all for your very encouraging comments. It is lovely for John and me to hear how much you have all enjoyed yourselves. We so enjoy having you all to stay in our barns. We don’t intrude on each other at all, but when we do meet up we always find our guests’ company great fun and very stimulating – everyone is different but all so very nice! I think we must be very lucky.
