Hello and thank you for taking the time out to read our new blog!
We are in full swing with our renovations now as we get ready for our first open weekend at the end of January! When we say renovation works, we don’t just mean a lick of paint! The whole place is being brought back to its forma glory, with the added luxury of… ahhhhh central heating! And when you are trying to heat a house the size and age of Launcells Barton its no easy feat! Don’t worry though, we will still have open fires and wood burners for those crisp winter evenings!
As you can see from the below photo we didn’t have to dig very deep to uncover a few surprises when we started works! Mind you, if i was in my 80’s like Matt’s grandparents were when they decided to redecorate, i might have left the furniture where it was too!
We have also started the big task of the main entrance and staircase! Our poor decorator is having to scrape every inch of the walls as the hallway was left with paint peeling off all over the place, when a previous painter had not taken into account the specialist paint needed for the lime rendered walls.
We will keep you up to date with all the developments happening at Launcells Barton as we prepare to open for our first weddings next summer!
In the meantime we are focusing on our open event at the end of January. This is an opportunity for people to see the newly renovated house and see the plans for the Events Barn & Mill Barn as works start on those early next year! We also have wedding suppliers from the local area showcasing at the event, which gives you the perfect opportunity to meet an array of potential suppliers all in one place!
We are offering show around appointments for our open weekend in January which will be open 10am to 3pm both days and slots are filling up fast, so to secure your appointment please call us on 01288 352352 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s it from us at the moment, but don’t forget to like our Facebook page to keep up to date with all the goings on at Launcells Barton!
Thanks for reading
Lara & Matt
