My husband and I have just spent four nights in Tom's Barn and WOW what a find it turned out to be especially as dog owners (there were even towels for our dog). Upon arrival we were greeted by Angela and shown around the beautiful cottage. The fire was lit, the kettle just boiled and a freshly baked cake on... More

Having sat on the M1 for several hours we were greeted with a tray of tea and homemade cake and a lot of TLC from the owners. The cottage had everything and all was of a top quality. The knives were like razors the dishwasher sublime and I could go on. The people of Parwich all spoke to us on... More

What an absolute joy it was staying in Tom's Barn for our first week of married life. Exactly what we needed to relax after such a hectic time! The cottage is wonderful, couldn't find any faults. The kitchen is very well equipped and the bed extremely comfortable - something our Cocker Spaniel wasn't too pleased about as it definitely encourages... More

This was our second visit and this time we stayed in Tom's barn which was excellent. There is so much going for it: Great location, well kitted-out kitchen, comfortable, warm, quiet... I could go on. And of course John and Marion who are as wonderful and helpful as ever. I would recommend this as one of the best cottages of... More

Douglas's Barn is a treasure - and so are Marion and John who have managed to get everything just right to restore and refresh you, mind, body and spirit. We were delighted by all the little extra touches (things you rarely find in self-catering) and revelled in the comfort, peace and quiet. Every day we went walking (just step outside... More

We had a wonderful welcome from our charming hosts John and Marion to Tom's Barn. The cottage was prepared with such loving and unusual attention to detail, ie. fire lit and gentle music and tea with cake on arrival. Absolutely everything provided and thought of, so much care and attention given to comfort and convenience. Spent one day at Dovedale,... More

What a glorious find! Welcomed by home baked cookies, a beautifully laid out tea tray and a warm slab of simnel cake. Marion and John couldn't have been more kind and welcoming. They really had thought of everything, music playing, dinner made by their neighbour Val ready to pop into the oven, fresh flowers which lasted the whole week. It... More
