How very good of you to write so positively in your feedback. I am pleased you enjoyed the summerhouse. It is a new feature this year and we thought it would have great appeal to be able tit beside the brook and watch the wildlife. Also a super spot for dining.
I hope you managed time to take an evening stroll round the reservoir and enjoy the rare bats and evening wildlife to be found there. If you come in the spring there are beautiful wildflowers too.
Thank you for taking the time to comment...greatly appreciated. Do come again. Best wishes Ann
