Tom's Barn is a first class hideaway for two in Parwich. From the cosy woodburner to the well stocked kitchen and the lovely bedroom - I can't fault it. There's a kitchen and separate front room downstairs, a balconied bedroom is on the first floor. Dogs are welcome and there's a clever gate to keep them on the ground floor. The little touches make the stay - a gorgeous cake was waiting for us on the table, an ipad with relevant websites is charged and ready to go and the neighbour Val cooks up great dinners and delivers them to the door. The lasagne was very tasty and a bargain!
If you want a peaceful getaway with walks on the doorstep then this place is for you. I've already recommended Tom's Barn to friends and one day we hope to go back and do some of the walks in drier weather! And we had a lovely bonus when we left - our timing was superb, we went to say goodbye just as Marion took a Bakewell Tart out of the oven. Two slices were offered to send us on our way...how could we refuse!
- 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
