Pitlands Barns Welcome to 2022
- 11th Jan 2022

As 2021 disappears into the haze we welcomed 2022 with two fantastic reviews from our lovely Christmas and new year guests and once again retained our Airbnb Superhost status which was so nice to receive considering our Christmas wasn’t quite as planned ! 

My husband had come up with a wonderful idea of disappearing with the children to the Alps as a family for the WHOLE Christmas holidays ! With Pitlands Barns amazing cleaning team all primed and everything organised we were ready to go until the latest french restrictions put stop to all our plans three days before departure. Unfortunately the accommodation he had booked did not include our very own Pitlands Barns COVID Guarantee ! Or any Guarantee for that matter - all i could do was bring out a mountain background, pull out the skis and don my goggles for a Christmas Day photo (see photo :) 

We put in place our COVID Guarantee back in 2020 to give our guests peace of mind in these uncertain times. Our personal experience over the last 3 weeks has proved to us how important this is:- To give confidence and peace of mind to our wonderful loyal guests, so we have continued our COVID Guarantee into 2022. 

Six months ago we launched our 360 tour and online air guide. We have been overwhelmed by the response to this with over 1000 views to our 360 tour already. Everyone should now receive a link after booking to our air guide enabling you to plan and book activities, restaurants etc well in advance of your arrival. 

We are very excited about the year ahead and hope you are too, it provides us with important opportunity to invest in continued improvements; We listen to feedback so look out for these. 

We are fairly booked up already and look forward to again welcoming our lovely returning guests.  We still have a few weeks available this summer for groups of 4 or 6 however If you are looking for a weekend in all three for 14 (as i write) the next available is Friday August 12th then end of Sept with more going forward. 

Break through those January Blues and look forward to an awesome 2022.

Autumn Approaches
- 22nd Sep 2021

Summer thankfully still shines through during the day here at Pitlands Barns. The nights are cooling down and those fresh autumn mornings are starting to come through. 

It’s been a busy and exciting summer welcoming some lovely familiar faces back to Pitlands farm as well as lovely new guests. We were delighted to welcome back for the tenth year running our wonderful August Granary guests. In fact it has been our busiest summer to-date. 

As the surrounding views turn from summer greens and yellows to the seasonal spectacle of oranges, reds and gold’s we swap the BBQs for wood baskets and look forward to our guests enjoying long autumnal walks in the invigorating fresh air or simply snuggling down in-front of the wood burning stoves with a glass of wine or hot chocolate or two. 

We welcome our lovely winners of our Valentines Competition in November. You may remember we gave away the date of November back in February to be as certain as possible to our wonderful guests and to give them something to look forward to. 

Look out for our new air guide link when you book. It give you all the information from the welcome folder and more straight onto your device enabling you to search, book, plan you activities, lunches walks etc. from home before arriving. We have also introduced our 360tour – find this on our website to view in detail inside the barns. 

Winter bookings are once again strong with many of you wonderful friends returning to the tranquillity of Pitlands Barns. For large groups of 14 wanting to take over as a whole we are looking towards March for weekend availability. 

We look forward to welcoming you over the autumn months. 

Kelly, Tim & Family.
