Out in the country kind of life style
Me and my partner Stephanie who lives in her own house next door were in Woof Ireland for years, now she is working so I am doing this on my own.
Come and experience self sufficiency here, and sustainable living, where food comes from, how water and the house is heated.
I produce my own electricity from Solar panels and a water turbine
Main things to do are around the garden, weeding, transplanting, grass cutting and so on.
also wood chipping gathering and stacking wood. We go down to the sea nearby and collect seaweed.
Accommodation is in an another house near the main house, there is room upstairs for 2 people sharing.
We do not have central heating but a masonry wood stove you can fire up once a day .
Also I have a caravan near the stream when there is a couple in the guest house
All meals are included and are in the main house.
