Re: Downstairs toilets vs bigger kitchen

Also if you put in a piece of mirrored glass to fill the entire length of one of the longer walls you’ll find the loo feels much bigger.

Re: Downstairs toilets vs bigger kitchen

I lived in a house once without a downstairs loo. Visitors had to go up the stairs to use my bathroom on the first floor (we had two other bathrooms higher up). I found it a real invasion of privacy - you may not as you say it will always be immaculate but you might find the house harder to sell. An...

Re: Child friendly hotel recommendations for Oman

I agree re Shangri-La. Very kid friendly, very nice. Feels very safe. Zighy Bay in the Mussandam Peninsula is stunning - they have a kids club but if you’re going in November your kids might be too young (aged 4 and above). You fly to Dubai rather than Muscat and it’s about a two hour transfer. Heav...

Re: Private School scholarships

I read recently that the head of Westminster is aiming to make the school means/blind in the next few years - is anyone that is bright enough to get a place will be able to go no matter what their financial circumstances. Maybe worth a look.

Re: Cyclist single mum recalls terrifying moment she thought she was going to die during crash with Tesco lorry in Claph

This is not a comment on this poor lady, whom I wish a speedy recovery, but I have had several near misses with cyclists owing to their clothing. If it’s a dark day (or worse, at night) I find it can be difficult to spot a cyclist if they’re wearing dark clothes and a black helmet. Please cyclists -...

Re: Dog friendly cottage for Christmas - recommendations please

Bovey Castle on Dartmoor has dog-friendly cottages in the grounds. It's a beautiful place and you can use the facilities of the hotel (lovely pool etc) so you get the best of both worlds. There are lots of walks right from the hotel. They're quite expensive if you book through the hotel, but if you ...

Re: Suspect Party Wall Surveyor

Yes you definitely need your own surveyor. I don't understand why they've appointed someone before you've had the result of the application - as I assume you don't either! I would due your due diligence and get a good surveyor and maybe he/she can help sort out the problem.

Re: Great Handyman Reccomendations Needed

I used Silver Saints for a few jobs around the house. The guy I had (Lean) was very good. They’re reasonably priced and it’s easy to book.

Re: Hornsby House registration

To be fair to the Queen’s relatives, most children aren’t specifically threatened by jihadi assassins and don’t need a security entourage with them.

Re: Baby left in car with engine running?

Your original post said “If I am wrong, please do tell me.” Why did you ask for people’s opinions only to attack those who don’t agree with you? No one has suggested you’re evil or borderline insane. We’re just pointing out that people have different interpretations of risk. I think pretty much ever...
