A four day break at Tom's Barn is just not long enough. A truly wonderful place to stay, with absolutely every luxury provided. But this cottage deserves more than a five star rating, as it has little touches of thoughtfulness impossible to find elsewhere - the woodburner was lit on arrival; a tray (complete with starched traycloth) was set with teapot (and tea cosy of course), cups, and a fresh homemade date and walnut loaf; the scent of fresh lillies filled the sitting room; and by the bed a small vase of snowdrops. We half expected thick towels, dressing gowns, and a welcome pack of essentials but we certainly did not expect such attention to detail. But, the best thing for us was that we could bring along our labrador to share the holiday with us. Thank you Marion, thank you John - I hope you realise just how much pleasure you give to those who stay with you.
- 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
