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.
New skills - we are happy to teach.
