    Description

    *** DUE TO THE SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES WITH THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC WE CAN'T OFFER THE SAME ACCOMODATIONS THAT WE USED TO. WE'LL HAVE TO WORK IT OUT IN OTHER WAYS. WE HAVE SPACE FOR MOBILE HOME OR CARAVAN OR TENT. IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT COULD WORK FOR YOU THEN WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU! ***

    I am a free spirit, living in the woods, by the river, with my family.
    We always have lots of projects going on in and around the house and garden. Our house was built in 1939 and it is a handful to take care of! Never a dull moment here 😁

    I sew, I arrange and care for my 300+ house plants, restore and "pimp" furniture, amongst other things.
    I also have five (5) aquariums that need maintenance several times a week.
    In the basement I have a flower zone where I plant my seeds and root my cuttings. That also needs daily checkups.
    I'm a makeup artist, style consultant and hairdresser.
    So if you're in need of a haircut, skin treatment, nails, clothing - I'm your go-to person 😃

    My husband is a carprenter and concrete construction worker, who makes viking furniture and also build... Well just about everything that needs building and/or restoring.

    My son is an 19-year old passionate animal lover and vegan. He also has a friend, living with us as well.

    Five cats and two dogs make our family complete.

    We have a separate big old building that needs restoring, fixing the broken furnace, put some furniture together and freshening them up and redecorate the bar.
    Clearing out the attic is also a priority.

    We have a garden with flowers, herbs and vegetables that always needs looking after.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    This year is very different, due to the ongoing pandemic.
    If you are able to camp or have a motorhome/caravan we have space for you here. There is also possible to "camp" inside the old mill. It is not isolated and has no running water or anything like that inside.
    As for food, we might be able to cook and eat outside at least once a week. This situation calls for new perspectives. We'll have to work it out as it comes, as best we can.

    We have fiber, so working online won't be a problem. As I'm a seamstress and maker of alternative art I always appreciate someone else's point of view. Lots of discussions over a cup of tea no doubt.

    We have a big concrete parking space at our property. Perfect for a mobile home or caravan. In these strange times, with the powerful Corona virus breathing down our necks it seems like a very good way to keep the distance.
