It was really good to welcome Hugh W from Quality in Tourism yesterday. Although after all the wet weather and the approach to the farm not as neat and tidy as I would have liked due to the incessant rain, the cottage sailed through its inspection and we have achieved our 4**** rating for the eleventh year running. The cottage is always painted, inside and out, and the carpets cleaned in November. This year we have added several new appliances into the kitchen, for example, slow cooker, coffee bean grinder, juice extractor. We have also had the old family Chesterfield completely re-sprung and reupholstered, much more comfortable!!
