Two pages advertising Cromford Court as a holiday centre, from the Friendship Holidays Association brochures of 1936 and 1951[1]. 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[1].

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.
