The 2m satellite dish is sited on the bottom level of the garden and receives an excellent signal in the house. All British TV channels received no problem at all.
If you want to live in a beautiful, peaceful environment, then this is the house for you. No renovations to carry out, just move your furniture in and enjoy the sunshine or shade if you prefer. The all year terrace provides both depending on where the sun is during the day. Night time here is spectacular, no lights to spoil the amazing view of the stars and moon. Sit and watch the satellites travel the night Sky. The only sound to be heard is the owls calling to each other.
