One-Off Feature

Two romantic cottages for two in an idyllic Peak National Park setting. Warm, welcoming Five Star, Gold Award comfort in imaginatively converted 18C cowsheds next to our house on the edge of a charming rural village with traditional pub. The perfect romantic bolthole for couples wanting a very peaceful, relaxing special time together. Dogs welcome, wonderful walks, Chatsworth and Dovedale nearby…

General Info

From the outside – in spite of a mass of colourful pots of flowers and the soothing blue-green paintwork – you’d be forgiven for wondering if our two luxury Five Star holiday cottages in the Peak District had in fact altered much since their more modest beginnings as cowsheds. However, fear not. Open the door and you may be taken aback – no ancient farm buildings these! You sense at once that both our 18C barns are very much 21st century luxury: peaceful, relaxing, exuding comfort, warmth and welcome. You will find yourself in the perfect romantic hideaway for two, far removed from all the pressures and strains of normal life. Your stresses will instantly start to unravel as you start to revel in the luxury of enjoying a totally relaxing time together in your own very special home from home with no other responsibilities except to enjoy yourselves.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Parwich is a charming traditional limestone village, 7 miles north of Ashbourne, in the Peak National Park. The village has its own pub and little shop (and tennis courts) and is set in a beautiful area with wonderful walks right from the door. Orchard Farm is one of the older buildings in the village, perfectly situated between the village and open countryside. Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and Tissington Hall (famous for its well dressings) are within a half hour drive, as is Dovedale, Bakewell, Ashbourne, Buxton (Opera House) and numerous pretty villages. Carsington Water - about five miles away is excellent for water sports and fishing; numerous other activities are available locally. The area excels in good food with many farmers’ markets, farm shops and specialist butchers etc.; also many pubs and restaurants priding themselves on excellent food and good beers.

Accommodation Details

Interior Details
Tom’s Barn and Douglas’s Barn are charmingly different but share a uniquely warm and welcoming atmosphere. Both are equipped with everything you could possibly want and more - what our guests call ‘little extras’. Each (only ever) sleeps two but can dine four. Tom’s Barn accepts dogs. It is more ‘farmhousey’ with a mixture of antique and modern: the sitting room is airy but cosy with its log burner, high ceilings up to the rafters and huge gable window. It has an en suite, galleried bedroom and an unusual two-seater whirlpool bath up two steps. Douglas’s Barn - with all its delightfully quirky shapes and angles - is more contemporary, with the emphasis on peacefulness and convenience. The spacious bedroom has a longer-wider ‘king size’ bed and in the ensuite bathroom there is a power shower over the whirlpool bath.

Exterior Detailss
We are next to open countryside. Each barn has its own private garden area. We live next door; we never intrude, but are there when guests arrive, and if and when needed.

Further Details
A big plus for all our guests is that our two holiday cottages are owner-run. We, John and Marion, live next door. We own and cherish Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns and our guests and are on the spot if you need us but very discreet otherwise. We are there to welcome you, to answer any questions and iron out any problems if they should happen to occur. We’re there when you need us but promise we don’t intrude! Our aim is to make our luxury self-catering accommodation in the Peak District the most perfect relaxing romantic cottages for two: the sort of holiday accommodation we would love to stay in ourselves (we keep looking…!). Luckily for us, our two converted barns are very popular and in great demand – but we don’t ever want to rest on our laurels. We are constantly trying to think what else we can do to keep everything as special as possible; we are aware that standards progress and expectations increase and a bit like over-indulgent parents are always trying to think what next we can spoil our cottage guests with. Orchard Farm is no longer a working farm. We are in a Conservation Area, in Parwich, in the Derbyshire Peak District National Park. As well as our 5 Stars we also have a Silver GTBS (Green Tourism in Business Scheme) grading.
