Area: Pays de la LoireUpdated 5th November 2011. Our lives have changed a bit now and I (the mum) work away three days a week in UK. My husband stays full time at our farm. We have just added two pigs to our animals and are still looking for people to come and workaway at our farm. Hi, We are a young family with four children aged between 9 years and 12 months. We are an English couple who relocated to France just over three years ago and have been living in our current house for 3 years. My husband works away during the week and so I need help with looking after the children and the animals during the week. We currently have 1 dog, 5 cats, 3 sheep, 5 pygmy goats, 4 ducks, 35 chickens and 28 chicks. Our house is a large farmhouse in the countryside with lovely views which we are currently trying to renovate and extend. We also have a barn which we hope to renovate into a gite and games room in the future. At present the two oldest children go to school four days a week and my son will start at school in May 2011. On a Wednesday the oldest two children have various activities that they go to. We would prefer a female volunteer who has experience with looking after young children. The accommodation is a double room with television and a bathroom which is shared with the children. We have wifi internet access in the house which can be used by the volunteer if they have a laptop, or if not, my computer can be used to check emails etc. - We currently need help in the next week or two with clearing our vegetable plot so that we can plant some more seeds and plants.
Area: EnglandWe cannot take any more workawayers until the end of summer 2013. Please apply in August/September for a place October-March 2014 I run a B&B and holiday cottage business in Worcestershire in the beautiful heart of England. We are on the border of three counties; Worcestershire Shropshire and Herefordshire which are all very rural counties. Ludlow is one of our local towns which is a very attractive historic town famous for food. There are lovely walks and historic places to visit in the area and our own land is a pretty and peaceful place to be! We have an old farmhouse where we have two rooms for bed and breakfast and we have two holiday cottages also in the grounds. We have a large garden and lots of animals. We'd like to invite two workaways (couple sharing a bedroom) to come and stay this winter. We have lots of work to do outside and some decorating work inside. We'd also appreciate help with the animals and cooking. I would be very happy to hear from you if you have experience breaking horses as I would love someone to train my donkeys to pull a trolley! But please only apply as a couple to do this as it will definitely need two people.
