It's been on our 'to do' list for quite some time, 11 years in fact! Ever since we purchased A Corner of Eden, we knew that the roof of The Farmhouse needed replacing. During winter it used to let in spin drift snow and has been known to fill up so much that it leaked through the loft hatch into a bedroom!!!
The time had come to invest in re-roofing this lovely old building, so we planned a 5 week closure, along with the Cottage as well, to enable the scaffolding to be erected for the work to take place. Not ones for only tackling one job at a time, we decided to remove the ugly rough cast from the front of The Farmhouse (something we had dreamed of doing for a long time!) and re-instating the beautiful pointed stone work.
