    I am a reflexologist and an acupuncturist and have a therapy room in the house. My partner is a keen fly fisherman. He was on the irish fly fishing team so could show you a tip or two if you are intrested in fly fishing. We are on a lake full of little brown trout and have a boat you could use.

    we have just moved into a large house and we are trying to bring an over growen garden back to its former glory. While we are not organic we are practicing organic methods. we are gardening novices so any help and advice will be very welcome. Inside needs a little painting and help with house work would be appreacited as with my limited moblity every thing takes me a very long time to do.

    you will be staying in the house with us. you will have your own bed room and private bathroom with shower and a bath. we can have your own den or you can share the sitting room with us. we also have wifi.
    we try to have our dinner in the evening but we can work out whats best for everyone. as we are in a rural area i feel our home would suit a couple best or someone that enjoys there own company. As we are not at at home every day you need to be self motivated.
