New Garden Furniture for Douglas’s Barn Terrace

Douglas's Barn new garden table and chairs

For the last year or so we have been saying we must replace the pub type table on Douglas’s Barn terrace. It is old now, great for eating a meal at or barbecuing but not so relaxing if you just want to relax in the sunshine and read or snooze.

So last week John ordered two arm chairs and a table from Pepe Garden Furniture.  We are great Pepe fans – their stuff is reasonably priced, comfortable, well made and environmentally very acceptable,  and we have recommended them to so many friends. Every time we order something or go to their stand at shows we always suggest we are due a commission but so far the suggestion has fallen on deaf ears…

But that is by the by; meanwhile we are pleased with our new purchase and hope the weather will soon prove so summery and warm that out Douglas’s Barn guests are able to try them out. So far our guests have found lots of occasion to sit outside their barns which is such a warm and sheltered spot the minute the sun shines. And now the camellia is out and the tulips ready to burst forth; the clematis and roses are in good leafy promise. What a lovely time of year spring is!
