Thanks both, unfortunately it seems that lots of people who are looking for a property with land want a farmhouse to renovate rather than something more modern.

Does anyone know of any mobile abattoirs that visit North Wales, ideally Anglesey?

We have been planning for months to get a few rare breed pigs to rear for pork. Initially for ourselves and ...

THanks both - that's going to keep me busy for a while!

Just found out that the boiler I was interested in needed it's own boiler room. Not an option, so back to the drawing board

No - the epic journey continues.

should be getting another "wood quote" today, but since they're the only two suppliers I can find within 50 miles I'm expecting both quotes to be quite similar.

yep, got some nice bread there. There's a lovely Delhi there now - called Sarah's. Not cheap, but some fantastic stuff. Glad I'm half an hour away, between that and the sweets I'd be broke (and fat!)

Anyone looked at this - quooker.com? HouseBuilding & Renovating magazine had a small article claiming running costs of 2p/day. How does this compare with normal kettle usage?
