I want to install VM in my summer house which is about 30m from the house would this easy to do and what cable/coax would I need, or would it best be done by an engineer?
You can lay your own cable if you like and run it how you see fit, it would save our Engineer the job of doing so, the cable would need to be of the same or higher spec than we use. We may just need to test it and change the connectors on the end of the cable. I've been to plenty of customers where they have ran their own cables either hidden through the house or out to an extension/summer house.
The main benefit is that you can hide away the cable how you would like it best, where if the Engineer was to do it, they may go through options with you but ultimately choose the easiest way (as all jobs are timed).

I recently asked a question about setting up V6 in my summer house and had had a very helpful reply so thank you, so my next question related to the 1st is: the V6 I want to relocate is currently in an upstairs bedroom and that is the one I want putting in the summer house. Can the coax be fed from the connection box on the wall in the bedroom to the summer house which is about 20 meters away which includes the drop back down to ground level? Or would a new line be needed coming from the main feed box outside the house?.
