We have been toiling with the idea on and off now for around 17 years. Finally we have made the decision to have a B & B at home. Ironic since we have been doing our weekly holiday rentals for years in both France and Italy!

We are fortunate enough to have a lovely 108 year Old Original Miners Cottage on our property. It has been sadly neglected for many years, however the bones are strong and stood the test of time. Over the past few weeks Brendan has been re-roofing, the stumps have now been done and now loads of carpentry work, painting, patching, filling etc. is all ahead of us. Luckily we are a hands on family and do the work ourselves, with the exception of electrical. Over the next few weeks I will be blogging about our progress….very exciting, especially when this time, we don’t have to get on a plane do renovate!
