We are a young fun loving couple who have moved from London to Devon to start an adventure. We have 2 amazing fur babies (dogs).
We have established a B&B and are now in the process of creating a more ecologically sustainable household, and would love some likeminded people to share in ideas, projects and the such. We are currently working on our food garden, creating eco-logs for burning and preparing fermented foods!
We are relaxed and would prefer that our workawayers carry the same flexible attitude.
We are looking for workaways who can give a helping hand in redecorating our B&B. We have room for up to 8 people whom will be staying in the B&B bedrooms which are all ensuite. We would like the workaways to arrive on the 2nd January 2018 staying up until 11th January 2018. We may have availability for 2 people to stay longer than this period in our 'bunk room' which is based in our living space.
Cleaning is a massive part of day to day life so anyone that loves to put on marigoldes & get scrubbing is welcome!!
We are relaxed, eat when you get up etc there are plenty of farm shops nearby so all the food is super fresh, you can cook for yourself or if you want to join us for meals you are more than welcome...
We look forward to welcoming you into our home but ask that if you are travelling from outside of the EU that you provide us with the relevant & up to date information stating your eligibility to work within the UK.
Help in the house
Painting, decorating, handy work is a must. The love of cleaning & helping around the house.
Help and ideas in regards to creating a sustainable household.
Our country house is 4 stories and we live on the lower level, allowing the guests to have full use of the upper levels. You will either be accommodated in the B&B bedrooms which are all ensuite. You are more than welcome to use our kitchen to cook in and/or join us for meals. We provide your food. There is a separate living room if you want some timeout but you are also welcome to join us anytime.
We have unlimited internet so no problems there. We are based in Axminster home to River Cottage, 5 minutes from Lyme Regis beach & a bus ride from two bustling market towns Bridport & Honiton. If you wanted a weekend in London it is under 3hrs by direct train from the local station. It is a very picturesque area with plenty of beautiful walks...England doesn't get much more beautiful!
We are relaxed but would expect you to be enthusiastic about helping us reach our goals & stick to the 5hrs per day. Please do apply even if it is one particular element that you are more interested in doing. You would need to be clean & tidy. You must love dogs!! If you are looking for the 'Good Life' and to experience the hub of the English Countryside living this is for you!
