Can I just clarify a couple of points please. It's clear none of those solutions are ideal.
Your description suggests there is no built-in extension in the spare room. Is that so, and if it is are there any extensions anywhere that are used/needed
? Do you use DECT phones nowadays?
Is the supply to the house from a pole, or underground?
The reason I'm asking is that, for other reasons, I managed to get the entry point from the pole moved to the spare room for free where I was doing the same as you on ADSL2+.
The ideal solution for you would be to get the same entry-point move, which may be possible within the FTTC installion rules if you get a cooperative engineer
