About Us

Us…. OK, we are Ellie and James, currently a teacher and an asbestos consultant, living and working in the city suburbs.  We have bought a smallholding a couple of hours away and intend finishing the build the previous owner started and improving the land around us to eventually make our living and lives there.

We have a dog Sookie


and 3 cats,





and Parker

This blog will be our journey creating our future lives, home, and business in our small corner of the world!

  1. Hi Ellie,
    I can see why you both fell in love with this place….the woodlands are magical!
    A lot of hard work I’m sure, but will be worth it!
    Good luck with all the renovations. Love Kirsty x x x

  2. Been enjoying the photos and the progress, my husband and I are currently in the process of reclaiming 14 acres and a farm house from 30 years of neglect. So your posts always feel relevant to me.

    • Thank you! And I am glad we are not the only crazy loons dealing with 30 years of neglect!! I found two more dead gates and a few tyres lodged in another hedgerow section I cleared today!!! Ahh well more fodder for the tyre wall!!
