I stayed at Dave's smallholding for a few days last week.
In the woofers' 'lodge' there was an aga (or was it a rayburn?) that Dave had set up in his own special way.
We lit a small wood fire in it each evening and shut the door. That provided us with enough heat for the whole night, and heated the water for three of our showers the next morning.
And now I'm thinking about slow casserole cooking, in a pot on top. So you could combine space heating, water heating and cooking fuel all in one small wood fire...
With the wood from pretty woodland nearby, in which you cut tress down and up when you have a bit of something to get out of your system, and in which you come with small children to plant trees
oo it's getting so idyllic it's oozing...
