Spring Clean – pots & pans

This is the time of year when all the copper items in the cottage are cleaned up. It’s hard (phew) and dirty work but when completed they look super cool.

In the years past copper pots and pans would have been used for cooking over the open fire in the living room and it was generally thought that a clean set of copper pots meant a well organised household. So I had no choice but to clean hard to make them super shiny!

We also have some information boards in each room detailing how they used to look when the farm cottage was inhabited about 200 years ago by the old farmer and his wife. These boards are very interesting; a lot of the information was gathered from the local Museum of Kent Life in Maidstone. For example: what was a Parlour used for? Where was the old bakery oven?  What are the big hooks used for in the kitchen and so on. Come, stay and learn about the history of Coldharbour Cottage. It’s fun for the children too. 🙂

Well, after a couple of hours and a few drinks later it was complete – I even cleaned up the brass pipes in the cottage. It all helps us to achieve the 4 star Visit Britain Rating which sets the highest standards for Holiday Let Accommodation throughout the country.

Thank you for all those who have booked to stay at the cottage this year. There are still some weeks available, please look at the calendar on the homepage or contact here today or message through Facebook.   fb
