How do from West Sussex!!

:flower: Hello lovelies :wave: My partner and I moved into a grotty box room in sayers Common, West Sussex so we could set up my beautiful dog grooming salon in Horsted Keynes, West Sussex! The plan is to seek out a piece of land to rent, approximately 1 - 2 acres between Horsted Keynes and Sayers Common and be self sufficient!
That's the plan anyway but land I proving to be very elusive :roll: We want large black pigs for meat and keep the breed alive (they're utterly gorgeous), turkeys for christmas, chickens and loads of fruit and veg. We're eager to get going before winter sets in as being in a box room (no windows :pale: is getting us down some what and there's no way we can afford a flat. Just work till we can't stand and enjoy the animals until we can't stand and then sleep back at the box.
If anyone can help us at all we would be eternally grateful :sunny:

Hi Fruity, welcome to 'ish :wave:

Good luck finding a piece of land, that's an expensive part of the world you're searching in. A box room with no windows :shock:

Thank you as well Rachel :iconbiggrin: The price to buy here is just out of our reach plus we'd rather rent while we see what we can accomplish and then buy. I'm hoping paying rent per month will be more manageable. Going to need loads of luck!! Yes the box room is debilitating :( we're just hanging onto the hope that we'll find something xx

Hi Fruity, and welcome.

If I were you, I'd move to Scunthorpe :lol: .

Actually, no I wouldn't. Not Scunthorpe. Anywhere but Scunthorpe.

Except Grimethorpe. No one goes to Grimethorpe voluntarily. Maybe I'd move anywhere that didn't have thorpe in its name.
