A very impressive and well equiped barn conversion in a very quiet location. Parwich is a pretty village with lots of local walks and a pub/shop 5 minutes walk away. The owners (who live next door) were welcoming and friendly and the accommodation was spotless. A huge amount of local information and reading material was provided and this included the use of a Sony Notebook with free WiFi. The market town of Ashbourne is just 6 miles away and Dove Dale is even closer. All in all we had a perfect chill-out week, so much so we have booked Douglas's barn again for next year.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tom's and Douglas's Barns are two romantic cottages for two in the beautiful Peak District. Both Tom's Barn - which welcomes dogs - and Douglas's Barn are luxury 5 Star & Gold Award self-catering cottages, ideal for solo travellers or couples. You'll enjoy 21st century comfort and warmth in 18th century ancient limestone cowsheds, attached to the owners’ home in the peaceful White Peak village of Parwich. Next to open countryside – with walks in every direction – the generously equipped cottages are secluded and peaceful, yet only a shortish stroll from the village pub and shop. There is much to see and do nearby: the countryside is stunning, Chatsworth is nearby and also Dovedale, the famous beauty spot. There are plenty of good local pubs and restaurants to enjoy. ... more less
