Hi there, we both have had busy careers working in Education , mainly in central London, and now, we have moved into an old farmhouse on the edge of a village (with pub) in Suffolk. Our first projects, have now been completed, thanks to brilliant HelpX volunteers. We still have one little area - the size of room that needs serious work, and the everlasting maintenance. We quite like it a bit wild, and our plan to develop the garden in that way is clearly succeeding, and as a pheasant hen has laid 12 eggs in a nest in the middle of the lawn! Internally, there has been a fairly major re-arrangment of rooms, which now need basic redecoration, so there is always plenty to do, even on rainy days. And in June I have an important birthday to celebrate. In exchange for 4 hours work a day, we have a beautiful self contained annex, one double room with double bed, and a smaller room with 1 + 1 under/pullout single bed, plus own kitchen, bathroom and sitting room. I will stock the kitchen for breakfast and lunch and provide an evening meal for us all to eat together. Parking is available or we can pick you up from either Diss or Thetford. This is a very peaceful rural area, with nationally significant protected Fens virtually on on our doorstep. The Angles Way, a long distant pathway, can be seen from the house. Near by there is fenland, heathland and of course,Thetford Forest. Norwich, Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds are all easy to get to. Happy to consider long weekends and stays of 1 or 2 weeks, anytime this year. (Photos- main house, annex, the start of the wooded area, annex bedroom and annex sitting room). Do read our feed back and feel feel to get in touch.
