We have bitten the bullet as regards the carriage windows and condensation and have just completed installing double glazed units in all the fixed windows. The original aluminium frame sliding windows remain as before so hopefully we have retained the character of the original while vastly improving the heat retention in the winter and eliminating the condensation problem which previously existed.
As last years guests know we have a new dog walk down the old railway line to the east of the property as far as the river. We are now looking into getting access to the old line west of the property. If we can do this, with a lot of work we can create access to over a mile of extra railway line walking.
The carriage now has a fold away table and four chairs as well as the stools for the breakfast bar to make eating in more enjoyable.
