The Eroica Festival will be taking place at Friden Grange between the 16 and 18 June 2017. This is one of the most popular events in the cycling and festival calendars and Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns are ideally placed being only 5 miles from the venue. You do not even need to get in the car if you fancy either cycling or walking there. The back lanes and High Peak trail will get you there without being hassled by traffic on the busy A515. There is plenty going on over the 3 days Live music including legendary 80’s icons ABC. If you want to join the bike ride on the Sunday you can choose a distance to suit your ability. The atmosphere is magic and you can be sure of a good send off at the start and being cheered home at the finish. How about getting dressed up or dressed down, always great fun and there are prizes for best in show. There is award winning food, Gin bars and boozers as well as premium vintage shopping. On the 18 June you will be treated to the Lancaster Bomber flying over Friden Grange, a return to the Peak District where the bomber practiced its dam-busting techniques at Derwent Dam. It all makes for a great weekend away and you will be able to relax each night in one of the cosy, well equipped barns.

Missed out on the Antiques in Ashbourne though which is always worth going to. Izzy did better than me by getting 1st prize as the Prettiest Bitch at Hartington Show […]
