About John Marriott
Welcome to Postcard Cottages, I took early retirement from my career in the Agricultural Supply Trade to live a dream by moving from Leicestershire to the beautiful hills and dales of Derbyshire. Starting by coming on short holidays here over many years, just like you are thinking of doing and soon fell in love with the beautiful rolling green hillside, the limestone walls, numerous sheep, pretty villages and friendly folk. Watch out this area is addictive it could happen to you. We now have 2 properties with a third just starting to be renovated, the first we opened in 2015 No.3 Club Cottage at Biggin by Hartington is a charming old limestone shepherd end of terrace and it captured our hearts as soon as we saw the stunning rolling views front and back and safe south facing enclosed gardens. January 2017 sees the opening of “The Old Co-op Barn” Brassington. This has been renovated over 14 weeks during Autumn 2016. The Old Co-op barn is so called because it used to store agricultural supplies for the old co-op store in the village and has been called the old co-op barn ever since when. Please feel free to ask questions or message me. Hope to hear from you soon Regards John www.postcardcottages.co.uk
John Marriott purchased this cottage in 2016
Why John Marriott chose Brassington
The Barn is very special and everyone loves the unique character. You will see dustbin lids, potato baskets and ladders used as light fittings, old sacks, and picnic blankets for curtains. John made the kitchen from used pallets delivered to site during the renovations and they painted them to look like a garden potting shed. There are many more surprises, such as the double ended bath in the upstairs bedroom. The main bedroom upstairs is a beautiful room with double aspect windows with filed views. The luxury double ended bath is just what you need for a long relaxing soak. As a special romantic touch the bath is at one end of the bedroom! There is an en-suite loo and washbasin tucked away off the main bedroom. The twin-bedded room is on the ground floor with en suite large shower, toilet, and basin. With two full sized single beds and has relatively easy access to suit less able guests who find stairs a challenge. Also, ideal for children, friends, and relatives. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook your own meals if you want to stay in. There is a full set of crockery, cutlery, and kitchen utensils to suit four guests plus plastic dishes and cups for one child. The kitchen has a full range of appliances; electric hob, full sized electric oven, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. Choose the Barn to enjoy home from home comforts blended with traditional style and exciting design. Enjoy your break and let your imagination go. You will get plenty of ideas to take home with you. Photos are free; help yourself! Pets are welcome both in the barn and at The Olde Gate Inn is just a short stroll down the lane. It has open fires, great food, good beer, and a warm welcome.
