    Elli and Graham's home is a 19th Century wooden cottage in semi-rural surroundings. It has lots of natural timber floors and walls with a fine collection of period furniture. We prefer one or two people for one to two weeks duratio, sometimes more. A carpenter, plumber, electrician or plasterer would be particularly welcome and there's good chance of paid work also.
