    Description

    Our country mansion needs a lot of work

    We moved into a derelict mansion nearly 4 years ago. When we moved in two weeks before Christmas 2015 there was no bathrooms, no kitchens, no electric, in fact not even a water supply. All the pipes had been cut for the heating and the place was a sorry mess.
    Since then we (just us two) have worked and worked and got it up to the present condition.
    We are now running out of steam and desperately need some help. Nigel is not in good health so needs to take a rest for a while.
    I love cooking so you will be well fed. We aren’t that fit so only want to work about four hours a day so the rest of the time is relax or fun time. We have five dogs and a boat which takes up the rest of our days. We also have an indoor swimming pool to cool off at the end of the day.
    We live near the border of Northern Ireland with beautiful country side all around us. Public transport is terrible so you must have your own transport or hitch a lift off us if we are going your way.
