Cottage Bedroom Window

It doesn't look much, but we have had a window made for the cottage by a bespoke carpenter from Wiveliscombe It had to be made to plan as it is such a large window and needed to match the house as well as be in wood the same as the window it replaced. Some of the other house windows are metal. Painting is due to start shortly and then the scaffolding can come down and the cottage bedroom tidied ready for our spring guests.


This February and March we are having part of the house re-thatched. Terry Griffiths our thatcher and his team from Bishops Lydeard have been with us the last three weeks and with good weather forecast, hopefully they will be finished long before the end of March. Our local builder Andy Hearn is also working alongside the thatchers re-building the main chimney stack, as the old bricks were crumbling and letting in water.
