I have a room in a nice peaceful tranquil house in a little natural corner of Norfolk, half a mile from the sea, looking for a nice workaway occupant, possible for two friends for a shorter time, available now for anything from a week to a month or poss longer. Tasks are predominantly outdoor, wood work and painting, some digging, some carpentry and animal feeding/care.
Only suitable for a male applicant due to being quite strenuous. So male applicants only please.
AND PLEASE NOTE: Applicants must be able to speak English well enough to understand and speak a sentence at a time please, maybe level 2 would be a minimum requirement, very important for safety reasons with animals around the place and for personal safety when using equipment.
IF you can ride to a reasonable level (racehorse level) then it would be an amazing bonus! I am just in the process of training an old horse for a couple of amateur races in late autumn at the moment, the horse needs daily controlled exercise, but is not a novice ride.
I will take you out and about when I can and time permitting, including trips to Cambridge and Norwich, horse racing and swimming and gym if you want, and do my best to cook you good meals using local produce and home recipes. There is always a home made cake for you to eat as well!
I do not have children and I am not looking for a baby sitter or a carer, but it would be nice to have someone with a good sense of humor and who likes having a bit of fun.
I run a very busy bed and breakfast here on the North Norfolk coastline, being located just half a mile from a sandy beach that you can walk to easily. Until late March it is very quiet here, a few guests at random times, but nothing compared to the mayhem of the summer. Because of the public nature of my home, references from either a past job, or from a college tutor or previous host will be required.
I have a bike you can use if you want to.
I don't have children to contend with so am not looking for a built in baby sitter! pig feeding would be an asset!
Very quiet and laid back here with lots of wildlife and natural stuff... no night clubs so you must be happy to accept that fact although there are two local pubs within walking distance
Interested? ... send me an email
Previous workaway helps have stayed for nearly a year, 5 months and six months, but I would like to suggest a two week trial period and reassess after that time to see if we are happy mutually.
I am easy to live with, can be fun, and above all I love my animals
I can offer a comfortable room, a hot shower or bath and food in return for 4 hours help on a monday to friday basis.
It is very quiet here, the countryside is quite vast as far as England goes, but I am only 5 miles away from two towns and 40 minutes from the city of Norwich
The animals are everything to me and all of them are pets (including the 24 pigs) so someone who loves animals is a must please. My veg garden is organic, but nothing much is growing in the winter months, so keeping it tidy is the only thing going on with it until late March.
I can accommodate for an unspecified period of time depending on other workaway visitors coming, but I would like to suggest that we try a couple of weeks trial to make sure we are both happy with each other first before committing to any longer!
painting, gardening, animal care, indoor and outdoor maintenance, in fact anything you can turn your hand to and enjoy doing! ... shed building and house painting is the first priority please but not essential, carpentry skills a bonus but any help is greatly appreciated
I am told I talk a lot, so they can certainly learn English!... also learn how to care for animals and maybe bake the best cake in Norfolk!
Private room within private house, to share the lounge and kitchen area and two bathrooms. Use of washing machine and general facilities
NO smoking within the premises please, but you are welcome to smoke outside the door.
I will take you out and about with me pretty much whenever I go, this could include trips to Cambridge, trips to Norwich and horse racing. I can take you shopping when necessary. I will also take you to the train if you wish to go on your own adventures. I have taken my recent lovely helpers to york, to Cambridge, to the cinema and all over Norfolk to see the sights.
Around here there is a lovely boat trip out on the sea to see the local seal colony, two national trust old English heritages grand houses. There are lots of places of interest to visit if you like history.
