Two pages advertising Cromford Court as a holiday centre, from
the Friendship Holidays Association brochures of 1936 and
Above is the 1936 brochure, with charges of 55/- (£2
15s. in old money) for a week long stay. Miss Tolmie was
the manageress. The garden house advertised, which was
exclusively for men at the reduced rate of 50/- per. week,
was in the conservatory adjacent to the main building.
By the 1950s there were plants growing there so the room
was presumably no longer used as sleeping accommodation.
Below is part of the 1951 brochure, by which time the weekly
rate had risen by almost 40%; there was slightly less
guest accommodation available.
