    Description

    Hi, we are hoping to host SINGLE guests to lend a hand with the house (a little) and the garden / grounds (mostly)

    Currently, we would love to invite someone who is able to render / concrete a rough stone wall. Also some experience in labouring / building work (some of which will be quite heavy) - digging, concreting, replacing a large corrugated roof, would be ideal.
    Also some general maintenance in the garden - weeding, mowing and strimming, repairing a roof and feeding / mucking out a few hens and a horse.

    MAY to AUGUST / SEPTEMBER another pair of hands - general help with animals, keeping the house clean and tidy, helping with B&B guests, helping in the garden.

    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 creating jewellery and some stained glass work. 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.
    Volunteers must be physically fit, strong, 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 food, home made bread, local produce.
    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 rider.

    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 small dinghy available if you want to explore the creeks.
    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.
