A new extension built at the rear of the property with 7 letting rooms on the ground floor and 3 self-catering apartments on the first floor. These consist of Lounge/Dining room, Kitchen, Bathroom and two bedrooms. John was looking for a modern clean looking soft furnishings suitable for a varied type of visitor. Gailarde were able to offer a wide range of fabrics and finishes to suit his budget. John decided on a woven fabric for his curtains in Duck egg with matching velvet for the throws and cushions. The furniture was a Wengy colour downstairs and light oak in the self-catering units. All the upholstery tied in with the drapes.
