Homesteading Ideas,

Life Hacks & Tips

Follow our journey as we forge out a life in rural Hungary seeking out a more sustainable lifestyle and develop our guesthouse, campsite & tea-house.

In 2020 we saw an advert on facebook for a guesthouse and campsite in rural Hungary – and Mark bought it!  Follow our transition through covid and brexit from of 9-5pm life in Leicester, UK to live in Koppanyszanto, Hungary, a rural village of 400 people.

Within in months it soon became apparent if this transition was to succeed we would need to live more sustainably in line with the seasons, so this is a journey of a new way of life, language and culture.

Watch the evolution of the Koppany Pines ‘al fresco’ Tea House.  We believe protecting health and well-being through ingestion is key to organic living and so the tea-house will specialise in well-being infusions, tisanes and botantical bakes.   With three of Hungary’s famous thermal baths within a short distance this partnered perfectly with our location.
