    Description

    Live in our beautiful house by the river near Bath and help bring our beautiful garden back to life. We have various terraced gardens, a fruit orchard and a woodland - 2 acres. They have been lovingly looked after for over 100 years with gardeners living here - but we have neglected it due to having young children. We are looking for a gardener to help us rescue this beautiful garden and get it back up to a good standard.
    We are located 20 mins on a bus to Bath and we live in the area of outstanding natural beauty in the Limpley Stoke valley. We can offer you a bedroom with a double bed and view of the valley, plus a shared bathroom with our kids. We have our own en suite.
