RG030: A Fresh Outlook

Jess Platt vividly recalls the moment she wondered if, perhaps, she and her husband David might have taken on a bit too much when it came to renovating the run-down 18th century Dorset cottage they’d just acquired.

‘We’d only moved in a few weeks’ previously and were lying in bed surrounded by buckets to catch the rain that was dripping through the roof: there were even chinks in the tiles that revealed the night sky! I remember feeling daunted by everything we had to do to renovate it properly - and worried about what horrid surprises might lay in store...’

But things, as they say, usually look better in the morning, and as the couple had a makeshift breakfast gazing out at the rolling Purbeck hills sweeping up from the end of their garden, they knew that the view alone would surely make the entire project worthwhile.
