My Wife, Dog and I spent a fantastic week here over New Year 2010/2011. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Marion and John (the owners) who were very welcoming and explained all that we needed to know. The cottage was absolutely charming, very well stocked with all sorts of goodies upon our arrival. There is nothing one needs to...

My husband and I have just enjoyed a long weekend in Douglas’ Barn. We had a smashing time, only saddened we couldn’t stay longer. The barn is beautifully decorated, contemporary with traditional touches, a romantic feel also. We loved the warmth and cosyness, the soft furnishings and lighting all adding to the ambiance. The lilies in the lounge and the...

We stayed 3 nights at Douglas's barn and loved it. Not only is it a lovely place and the location is fantastic, but all the little touches really make it special - in fact, I don't quite know where to start on them! For a start, John & Marion provided eggs, bread, milk, butter, home-made marmalade (yum!) and bakewell tart...

My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Douglas's barn. After a long and delayed drive up from London we were very happy to walk into the barn and see the soft lighting, a flickering fire and hear soft classical music playing. Douglas's barn is thoughtfully and stylishly decorated - and an ideal setting for a couple. The...

We have stayed at Tom's Barn twice now and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The Barn is very clean and VERY well kitted out, with everything you could think of needing or wanting. The personal touches, such as home made cake, fresh flowers, flre being lit (if cold!) when you arrive only add to your experience. Lots of information...

From the very warm welcome from John and Marion, the home-made gingercake, the little extras of bread,freshly laid eggs etc, to the spotlessly clean cottage,this really was a lovely place to unwind for a week.There are walks from the cottage, but, aswell as those we chose to go further afield, including a great walk at Chatsworth and one that encompassed...

My husband and I stayed at Douglas' Barn for four weeks and at Tom's Barn for one week from August-September, 2010. We can safely say that they were the best self-catering cottages we have ever stayed at. Everything is top quality--from the appliances, to the sheets and towels and the bed in Douglas' Barn was one of the most comfortable...

We stayed in Douglas’s Barn in early April and have to say that it was pretty much perfect for what we wanted. I’ll try not to bore readers by spending TOO long eulogising yet again about all the things that make it so nice…. you’ll already have gathered by the extraordinarily high percentage of 5 star reviews (which as we...

The accommodation is in a lovely setting nestled in a green spot in a quiet village where you get a great panoramic view of the countryside. As self catering acoommodation you will struggle to find yourself asking "If only it had...." A great place for peace and quiet after returning from wandering round the nearby sights of the Peak District....

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

“Tom's Barn has character and charm, Douglas's Barn is the modern alternative.”

“The spiral staircase in Douglas's Barn would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues. Tom's Barn would be easier if that is the case.”
