Rhydd Barn

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.

New entrance gate

The single wooden entrance gate to the barn was becoming difficult to open and close. We have now replaced it with two half gates, pictured above, which meet in the middle. These new gates should be much easier to use and will hopefully last longer.

Christmas 2015

The conifer tree at the entrance to Rhydd Barn has had its top removed and side branches pruned. Sheep have been grazing the meadow for a few weeks but have now departed. The Barn looked very attractive at Christmas with its decorated tree, side lights and banisters.

A few small repairs

Bathroom - towel railbathroom - mirror shelf

The photographs show that the towel rail in the bathroom, which had become unsafe, has now been replaced.

At the same time a new glass shelf was fitted under the mirror above the washbasin which is more securely attached to the wall.
