Please can you recommend me a really good ironing board that would be suitable for my height (5'8'')? While I'm about it, also interested in recommendations for irons. TIA

Oooh, forgot to say that I love my iron. It's a Philips Azure and I've had it for at least 6 years so I know that there's newer/improved versions available now too. It has a long cable, fantastic steam pressure, is a nice weight and has an automatic cut off if you don't use it for a while. The only slight disadvantage is the water tank, wish it held a bit more.

My MIL recently gave me one of those steamer iron thingies with the huge seperate tank of water but my iron is honestly better than that so I ended up giving it away (with her permissionwink ).

Brabantia every time!! John Lewis stocks one Brabantia make for taller people I think. I have one its fab not even used it on its higher setting!!! Have a look on Brabantia website at specifications. More expensive maybe but so well made, had ours about 15 years now and as good as new!!
