We stayed as a party of 4 and a dog, so used both barns. They are immaculately clean and kitted out with absolutely everything you could possibly need. We were given eggs, milk, butter and bread to get us stared and arrived to a tea tray with delicious homemade cakes and beautiful fresh flowers. Angela made us so welcome and...

We spent a most relaxing week in Douglas's Barn and can not praise it highly enough. It is well-equipped with high quality cooking utensils, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier etc. Loads of books and maps providing ideas for walks and days out. Warm and cosy if weather is inclement (which it was occasionally) and the luxury of a jacuzzi bath...

We had a fabulous Valentine weekend in Douglas barn. Angela, the owner, had added extra touches, candles, heart cakes and roses, which were lovely and set the scene. The barn is wonderful, with everything you could ever need. It's warm and cozy, and lovely to come back to, after visits to nearby Peak towns and villages. Lovely local food in...

WArrived a bit early, but were warmly welcomed, in fact there was a home made chocolate cake along with other things such as butter milk bread etc..... The barn is very well equipped with all you need. For me the one thing I dislike is poor quality knives and cooking equipment, I normally pack my own, but on this visit...

Where to start. We stayed in Toms Barn and took our pug for a mid week break. The photos don't do the barn justice, it's so much lovelier when you're there in person. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Every kitchen utensil you could need, books, games, iPad, dressing gowns etc. The jacuzzi bath was...

We stayed here for 10 nights in June. We prefer to self cater, so I was keen this time round to make sure all our requirements were met. I wanted to make sure we had a superbly equipped kitchen, with a large enough fridge and freezer to serve us during our stay. The last thing you want on holiday is...

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.”
BoneyScamp, 19 Feb 2014 | Read review
“Both Barns are excellent. Douglas's is a little more modern and Tom's is more rustic.”

“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.”

“If a spiral staircase gives you a problem go for Tom's Barn next door as it has stairs”
