18-03-19 It doesn't always rain in the Lake District - far from it but the new washing and drying facilities will certainly help. There's also a small freezer to add additional freezer space over and above what's already in the cottage. Part two of the renovations (now finished) is the larger oven and changed layout in the kitchen area - so, if you want to slave over a hot stove preparing a feast, you can! Have a look at the photo gallery to see the changes we've made.
