  • Description

    Description

    Our property is situated in the Shropshire hills in an area of outstanding natural beauty and a site of special scientific interest. Just minutes away from historic Ludlow with its medieval castle we have panoramic views over six counties. We welcome couples.

    Our country retreat has the benefit of 15 acres of private woodland, gardens and grounds and is home to an abundance of wildlife, rare plants and flowers.

    We are a family myself (Penny) my daughter Fern, my Mother Janet and our two dogs Dixie & Darcy. We are experienced Hosts and have hosted people from around the world.

    We offer our workaways a double bedroom on the ground floor of the house. The room is well furnished with a comfortable King size bed with a memory foam mattress. The King size bed can be exchanged for two single beds when necessary to accommodate two single people. There is a large desk with an office chair and double doors and a large picture window looking out onto the gardens and amazing views. You will have the use of a shower room on the ground floor and full use of a large sitting room with a widescreen smart TV. There is wifi in the room. Workaway's have access to all of our outside space which includes many outside seating and dining area's overlooking breathtaking views. You will be given privacy but also have the benefit of being welcomed into an English family.

    Help

    We wish to create canvas cottages in our woodland for glamping holidays. We also have a wild camping project in our forest that we wish to start on this spring. We also wish to create fire pits for our holiday makers.

    We also have holiday accommodation that we need help with cleaning and maintenance. Our grounds are large including gardens, woodland and forest areas. We would appreciate help with gardening and forestry projects.

    We are looking for a variety of skills to assist us with our projects.

    We have areas of ground to clear as well as carpentry projects such as building decks and repairs to buildings. Someone who can use a chainsaw, strimmer, mower would be useful.
