Busy Week at The Malthouse B&B

It's been all go at our B&B this week, Alton Towers opens on Saturday so we've been busy to say the least! For the last couple of weeks the weather in Alton has been just lovely. So, this week as most of our indoor preparations for guests arriving are complete we've been busy working outside. Here are a few pics to show you what we've been up to.
This small outbuilding located at the side of the main house is a Victorian toilet. It's a two seater - great if you want to chat! Major repair work was needed to the roof of this building so Owen & Ian have been kept busy.
Here are the plug plants that we've recently purchased. We'll grow them on now until they're ready to plant in our tubs and hanging baskets.

We've replaced the old wooden fencing & hand rail near our outdoor family area with this smart new metalwork. A great improvement!
