A bath from the past

Chatting this morning with the Byre’s current guests they commented on the fantastic bath in the Byre and it reminded me of this photo. Taken more years ago than I care to remember as that is me probably about 3 years old with my brothers. This is the bath that occupied the original farmhouse when my parents first moved in to Bog  Mill. The main farmhouse needed complete renovation and so during these works we camped out in what are now the cottages but were then very much still farm buildings as you can see in the photo.

Although the bath was removed from the house I am so glad my parents kept it, as a re-enamelling later and what a spectacular centrepiece we have for the Byre’s bathroom, large enough for even the tallest bathers.

If only baths could talk this one would certainly have quite a story to tell, hopefully it’s now rightfully proud to have pride of place in the beautiful Byre.


Visit England Star Rating Award

Am absolutely over the moon to have just been told that BOTH the Byre and the Granary have not only been awarded 4 stars but they have also achieved the Gold Award for excellence in the self catering category. What a day, together with being reawarded my Super host status for a second time in a row on Airbnb it really has been an amazing day for Bog Mill Cottages. 🥇🥇🥇🥇
