Rhydd Barn

Ironwork painted

The ironwork around Rhydd Barn has all been re-painted. This includes the gutters and downpipes of the barn and converted pigsty and the metal handrail on the outside steps of the barn. Our decorator took the photographs below of the completed work.

Spring 2017 at Rhydd Barn

Our plant pots on the patio have been refreshed and spring flowers – primroses – are appearing in the little wild flower meadow despite the cold weather. The new gates installed last year have been varnished to protect them.

Rhydd Barn maintenance

We have been busy over the winter period with various maintenance works at Rhydd Barn. The converted stable to the north of the barn has been cleared out and decorated and our short-term plan is for guests to use it for secure storage (eg. for bicycles). Another water butt has been installed to help reduce mains water usage in the garden and on our patio plant containers. At the rear of the barn concrete has been added to fill in some small gaps and smoothen out the base of the stone wall. And, finally, the sewage treatment plant has been upgraded.
