    Description

    Hello,

    This is a beautiful Welsh mansion that we are currently renovating. It is located in the beautiful county of Pembrokeshire. The house is located 5 minutes from some of the most beautiful coast and beaches in the UK. We are nearly finished.

    There is plenty of water sports and fantastic places to see.We are a friendly bunch and want people to have a rich experience.

    The accomodation is in the main house and it is warm and comfortable - and you will be well looked after.

    We have tasks for people which include, painting, gardening and basic and technical DIY

    Also there is a lovely walled formal garden with a shell grotto. It has been touched in 50 years so needs lots of work.

    We respectfully ask you help us for 5 hours a day five days a week.

    Over the summer we have had people of all ages and from all over the world and we generally have about 8 Workawayers on site at any one time. As is the nature of the game, people come and go all the time so we generally have a room or two ready to fill! Stay as long as you like!

    We are a jolly bunch and aim to give Workaway people a great experience in a beautifully located historic house.

    Regards,

    David.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Pembrokeshire is the only Coastal National Park in the whole of the UK.

    It highlights how truly beautiful it is. Stone from the county was used to build Stonehenge.

    It has beautiful beaches,walks and cycle rides.

    It has a big art scene and lots of historical sites.

    It is a true gem.

    Learn new skills or help teach yours. Many of our volunteers have left us with new skills and we have had a few come through who were able to teach their skills.

    Help

    We are still in need of kind, considerate and fun loving people with all sorts of skills, or a desire to learn some! There is woodwork, stonework and lots of painting. Lots and lots of painting. And then a bit more!

    If you enjoy cooking and would like to help cater for our merry band (usually 8-10!) you'd be most welcome to play in the kitchen.

    Some help with Social media marketing would be appreciated too!

    We have a lovely old formal garden which needs work. We have basic tasks like painting and general building maintenance.

    Also there is a lovely walled formal garden in need of lots of TLC - including a shell grotto. It hasn't been touched in 50 years so needs lots of work.

    We need people who are good with wood.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Please be aware that the house is a work in progress.You'll have your own room, which may be a little basic but is comfortable and warm. We're nearing the end of the renovations now, so the bedrooms improve all the time - they even have doors on them now! However they are warm and the beds comfy. There is a shared bathroom and a common room with cooking facilities and TV/DVD. Most meals catered for, with provision for DIY when not! Always food around :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Lots of beaches and water sports. A car would be beneficial to explore further afield although there is a local bus service. There are a few bikes on site to borrow. The coast is just a 20min walk away, as is the local friendly pub. Great cafe in the village too!
