Flippant Friday….. Maybe a Holiday Let ?


A Barn in Dovedale, Derbyshire

As Airbnb’s are spreading everywhere.  So one might wonder just when this old barn will be converted.  B&B accommodation has sprung up in a mammoth post CV19 explosion, some in the most unlikely and inventive locations and settings.

No such fate awaits this Barn.  A Barn which I suspect was once more than just a Barn, but also simple farm accommodation, livestock below, living accommodation above.  It is currently a National Trust Property.  Simple restoration and now a visitor information post and a place in inclement weather to take shelter.

Not a bad spot for a picnic 🙂

Home or away, Please Remember to
