Updates at Folly View 2020

I briefly let you know about our updates at Folly View each year.

The main thing we have had to do this year is get new bed frames. They came from a company called Get Laid Beds. I refused to look at this website to start with as I thought it might be something naughty. We had only planned to update the double bed but ended up changing all three. They are very strongly made and they took some putting together. We hope you agree that they look great.

We have also had the carpets cleaned, apart from a bit of fading by the patio door, and they look lovely again. We found a local family company based in Telford, they were brilliant.

Because of all the wet weather over the Autumn and Winter the front door has been sticking. Having let it dry out it has still been sticking and I have sanded the frame until it doesn’t need slamming. It needs a couple of tweeks and the wood needs treating but nearly done.

I have sanded down the window frames and painted and oiled the patio door. The front door of Folly View has been sanded and painted and I put the door furniture back on last night.

I have acquired some new chairs which I am in the process of sanding, as they look a bit battered. So be patient, you may have chairs that don’t quite match for a while.

I have had to buy some new toys for our younger visitors to Folly View as some of the toys suffered some damage.

In the bathroom we have sorted out the sealant round the bath and bath panel has finally been sorted out and now stays where it should.

Every year I  scrub and treat the wooden garden furniture. I have taken the decision to not carry on using wood stain on the fencing. I scrub it every year and the blue is coming off. I decided it was a waste of my time painting the fencing because it would need doing again a month later.

I am sure you will find these changing make Folly View more comfortable for your stay.
