The tv reception is a little bit sporatic and being so highly mounted was a bit difficult to view.

The tv reception is a little bit sporatic and being so highly mounted was a bit difficult to view. However the view of the bach, the scones on arrival and the tip top clean condition the bach was found in, more than made up for it. :)

Owner's Response: Hi and many thanks for your helpful comments re the TV reception in Unit 2. We investigated this and then have had a TV technician fit a new aerial and splitter and reset the TV again so that the reception for all 17 channels is now very good. We have also adjusted the angle of the TV to improve the viewing. Best wishes - Geoff
