    Description

    IMMEDIATE (from AUG 25th - Sept 5th) help with maintenance, building repairs, garden work, tree work.

    Help needed with hens, horse, dogs, garden and house cleaning, B&B, helping to care for Nigel's elderly mother. Longer term preferred, available September onwards.

    We would love to meet someone who is happy to work hard for 4 -5 hours per day with lots of free time to enjoy this beautiful area of Devon.

    Must have at least basic spoken English.

    If you are interested contact us for a more detailed description of the work.

    We are a musical family (traditional/folk/celtic) living in a village in the beautiful countryside of the South Hams. We work at home - restoring musical instruments and occasionally creating jewellery and some stained glass work, and we also do a little B&B. We have 2 dogs - a small terrier and a huge white Shepherd, a Lusitano horse and 8 hens! We are a few miles from beautiful beaches and surrounded by rolling Devon hills. There is good surfing in the area. The local town has all amenities and is a short drive away, or bus journey, or a 20 minute cycle ride. In the village we have a bakery and a great pub, just a short walk away. This is lovely country for those enjoying outdoor life / walking / water sports.

    Autres choses...

    Volunteers must be OK with boisterous dogs and generally respect and like animals.
    Please note- we eat a mostly vegetarian diet, with some fish and only very occasionally locally produced meat, so you must be happy with this.
    We try to do our little bit to help the planet, so are careful with what we use and we recycle as much as possible, so we have to ask for no long showers or extravagance with water / electricity etc. (we have had guests who are careless with the planet's resources!)
    Volunteers must be physically fit and willing to work in all weathers (being England and often wet) and have suitable clothing / footwear for outdoor work, and must be able to get up and start work by 9 am on working days
    Breakfast (cereal, toast) and lunch (sandwiches, soup, light meals) are usually do it yourself meals unless I have prepared something, but we do provide a good evening meal when we eat together. We will of course provide tea and coffee, soft drinks etc. and the occasional beer. We enjoy good healthy food, home made bread, local produce where possible.

    All volunteers must have their own insurance.

    We would especially welcome musicians/ music lovers and hope you would enjoy coming with us to regular local pub music sessions.
    There should be an opportunity to experience some traditional English Morris dancing and traditional music sessions in local pubs. We love to take our guests out to local pubs with us and will them buy the odd drink, but please don't expect us to buy all your drinks!
    There could be an opportunity for riding for a very experienced sensitive rider - our Lusitano mare is not suitable for a novice to ride.

    We appreciate our guests understanding that we may want to have quiet times to ourselves occasionally.

    We are 3 miles from Kingsbridge and there is a limited bus service, hourly through the day, other than that you will need to walk, cycle or have other form of own transport if you want to get out and about independently. We can offer a lift into Kingsbridge some days. We have a bike you can use.
    We love to show our guests the local sights and you will have ample free time for exploring yourself.
    In Kingsbridge you can hire a kayak or go paddle boarding; there is surfing 15 mins by car; other water sports; great walking (coast path 4 miles); boat hire. Kingsbridge offers cafes, pubs, a wonderful small cinema, a nightclub, market twice weekly.

    As well as the volunteering work agreed, we do expect our volunteers to muck in with everyday household tasks like washing up, keeping their bedroom and bathroom clean and generally tidying up after themselves.
