Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We always welcome honest reviews and are devastated that that Dutch Barn failed to live up to your expectations on this occasion.
We employ a Manager to ensure that the Hot Tub is sparkling clean at all times and are sure that on your arrival this was the case. We would encourage all guests to ring us should a malfunction develop during their stay so that we are able to immediately respond. On this occasion you chose not to do this.
The Hot Tub was due for replacement in the near future anyway and in view of your review we have brought this forwards and a new " all singing all dancing" Hot Tub is now on order to be delivered shortly.
We would like to invite you to return to Dutch Barn to review the new Hot Tub as soon as you are able.

"Stunning location, modern well kept property"
We stayed at the Dutch Barn for one week - 4 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. We found the property to be exceptionally clean with modern furnishings and lovely touches such as candles, high quality linen and canvases of the area.
All of the amenities were in good working order but, had any problems arisen the manager of the property lived opposite. Very handy! She came and introduced herself on our first night to make sure we had settled in.
The property was well situated for exploring Lathkill Dale on foot; Bakewell and Matlock were a short drive away. Lovely views from all the windows at the front of the property. It was nice to have the option to sit out the front and enjoy the view, or to sit in the private decked area out the back (where the hot tub is situated).
There were a couple of things missing in our view: the hot tub did not have a lid lifter so getting the cover on and off was very heavy/difficult - it was definitely a job for the men! All female groups could struggle!! The outdoor tables could have done with parasols. The addition of a 'Welcome pack' would have been useful...to include simple instructions for appliances and the hottub; useful phone numbers; and details of local supermarkets/pubs etc.
Its also worth noting that the front garden is elevated from the road and whilst it is enclosed, it wasnt difficult for a dog to jump over the low wall onto the road. There were few cars but lots of walkers and dogs going by. The decked area out the back was completely enclosed.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday, and would recommend staying at the Dutch Barn.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Dutch Barn.We work hard to try to maintain high standards and customer feedback is very important to us.
We are sorry you found the Hot Tub lid so heavy - we believe it is heavy due to it taking on water and following your comments we have ordered a new lid.
We already have parasols and are expecting the all important weighted bases to be delivered this week.We just hope the sunshine will arrive with them!
We have previously relied on our Manager to give out information during the meet and greet, but appreciate that our guests may like some written information aswell.Following your comments we are therefore currently putting together a welcome folder to include useful telephone numbers/ appliance instructions so if you decide to stay at Dutch Barn again all will be in place.
We hope to beable to welcome you back to Dutch Barn in the future and hope that you will recommend it to your friends.
Many thanks for your comments.
Best regards Gill and Jonathan
