The en-suite bathroom has had a new all white Savoy suite installed, with an amazing overhead shower. The living room has some larger more comfortable furniture, a full size pool table and a new larger HD TV. We have also repainted most rooms and expect to be completed very soon. The Guest garden has been improved and has a custom built extra large oil drum BBQ perfect for entertaining with plenty of seating, with 3 large heavy duty picnic tables. Car parking has been improved with a guest car park not in front of the building, giving guests more space and better views. The kitchen has had all new, bigger & better electrical appliances fitted. All toilets & showers have had new suites, redecoration and new flooring. We have much more planned coming soon, and look forward to having you stay at the Stables cottage. Peter & Joanne Wall.More
