Needing a break from the ordinary day to day operations, I happily accepted a chance to share a cottage holiday in the west country. A very rural location indeed - wow it was so beautiful and peaceful. Good job we had a very high people carrier as the lanes were so narrow and the hedgerows very high. All the press huffing and puffing about this particular vehicle proved to be so very accurate!
The cottages we shared were very nicely appointed - charmingly quaint but with some seriously attractive old furniture. Gorgeous oak dining chairs around the very old trestle table - marked and slightly battered, but so obviously a much loved piece from a proper family home. Knowing how to obtain such fantastic history and quality is difficult but there are niche companies online who will source whatever you seek. The usual auction houses are the safest bet to get genuine products and not be ripped off by fraudsters.
