We've removed the existing fireplace, taken out lots of bricks that had been inserted over the years, and gone back to the original fireplace. There's a huge slate lintel, which has a couple of holes drilled in it. We're not sure exactly how these were used in the past, but lots of old Lakeland fireplaces have them.
We now have a beautiful log burning stove. Cosy. You can see the new curtains, carpet and furniture too.
The back of the lounge has been opened up to reveal a couple of windows onto the banking. These were previously hidden by a stud partition. We love these windows. We're also very happy with our new sofas.
The original window seat is still a lovely feature, and the seating arrangement now makes the most of the beautiful views.
We'll be writing more and showing more pics in the next few days. We still have 1 week available in the school holidays from 27 August . After that, our next available dates are from mid October.
