Elizabeth Musgrave lives with her husband in a 17th century former farmhouse in the Clwydian Hills, next to the converted barn called Gwenoldy (House of Swallows in Welsh) to celebrate the annual nesting and breeding of swallows in the nearby former pigsties. Gwenoldy is now a luxury 5-star holiday cottage.
Elizabeth trained with HMRC and spent 11 years analysing and investigating businesses.

She has worked with businesses ranging from small local enterprises to major multinational corporations.
