I really can't add much to what has already been said, so will just confirm that Tom's Barn is as fantastic as everyone else has stated.
We were so comfortable when we returned from a packed day of activities (this is a perfect location for walking, cycling and visiting the plethora of castles and stately homes) that we didn't even consider eating out; all we wanted to do was to relax with some scran, al fresco when the weather was kind to us, which was 5 out of 7 days in October, or snuggled down inside in front of the wood burner.
John and Marion were the perfect charming and helpful hosts.
A truly wonderful cottage, in a delightful location, designed and maintained with care and obvious love and enthusiasm.
We should have booked two weeks ...
- 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
