So the sun may not be shining at the moment but we are going into one of my favorite times of year – AUTUMN. If the weather follows previous years we are in for a lovely September and October and even November can still be delightful. This time of year attracts reduced rate for some weeks as it is not always the most popular time to away – not sure why as I could do a few days away at any time. The bonus of visiting in the Autumn is it can be quite and makes travelling around to beauty spots in the Peak District more enjoyable. Check out the prices for this time of year and treat yourselves to a few days, or even a week, in one of the lovely, cosy, romantic holiday barns. keep a look out for last minute deals or give us a call if you can’t find available dates to suit your requirements. Hoping to see as many people as we can for a lovely Autumn in Parwich, Derbyshire.
Summer may be coming to an end so you need to start planning a nice autumn break. There are vacancies in October and November and the prices are cheaper from the end of September. If you want a specific break that doesn’t appear to be available on the web site please give me a call. We are very flexible about number of days stay and also the days you can book in and book out. 5% discount for returning guests make it even more attractive.
We have been having the most glorious May. The gardens are looking splendid and we have had lots of guests enjoying the lovely Peak District. We have had to turn our attention, as lots of others have, to become compliant with new laws.
It may still be a bit chilly but the blossom is out at Orchard Farm. Looking forward to some nice warm weather for our guests to enjoy. Lots of bookings already for May, June and July but still a few gaps just waiting to be filled. Hoping to see new and returning guests to Tom and Douglas Barns this year.
What a difference from last week when our guests were battling through snow to get here and to get out again. Today the sun has been shining and and it had a bit of a feeling of spring. Can’t wait for spring to get out in the garden and start work in the new greenhouse. There are lots of bookings coming in but still a chance to get a short break away before Easter when it starts to get busy in the Peak District.
Happy New Year to everyone and looking forward to welcoming past and new guests in 2018. It may be cold and miserable outside so just the right time to recover from the Christmas festivities in a warm and cosy barn. Short breaks are available throughout the year and the cost of a stay is at 2016 rates. Can usually accommodate any day book in. Just contact if you have a special request for dates.
Short breaks are available for the rest of the year and still time to book Christmas at Douglas’s Barn. Reduced rates in both barns until 22nd December 2017. Start and end dates can be flexible. Look at Availability and Booking for available dates

Why not treat yourself to a few days away in the Peak District in Douglas’s or Tom’s Barns. The prices have been reduced from 17 November to 7 December 2016. The days may be shorter but it is great to get out for a few hours for a walk or drive in the lovely countryside.

Then you can return to settle down in the warmth of he cosy barns. Check out the Availability and Booking for the latest prices.
Time to get a bit of relaxation before the Christmas mayhem. There are still short breaks available in Douglas’s Barn. Plenty going on in the Peak District. Lots of Christmas markets selling lovely gifts that you don’t see elsewhere. Chatsworth House is also a must at this time of year. There are plenty of stories […]
Lots of events to go to in and around Parwich today but managed to get to the Horticultural Show in Parwich and the Hartington Show. 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 […]
