Any guest who visited Whindley last year would have been aware that we had a large leak in the kitchen which had ruined the flooring. We made a temporary "fix" by putting a washable patio rug over the offending area. Hopefully our guests were not inconvenienced by this during their stays.
This was the second time the pipes had let us down and the second time we were facing replacing the flooring.
Over the winter we had to make some decisions on how to proceed. The old copper pipes (which had caused the problems) have been replaced by plastic. We have been aware that the kitchen needed some updating as it still had many of the features from when it had been a functioning B&B.
We braced ourselves and arranged to completely refurbish the kitchen.
Here are a couple of pictures of the new room. We hope visitors will be as pleased as we are.
