  • Beschreibung


    We are a family living on a farm in a gorgeous village called Mells in Somerset. Husband is Jonathan. He is a software developer. Wife is Daisy. She is a freelance journalist. We run a successful holiday let business at the property.
    We also have two dogs and a cat so those applying must be animal lovers!

    We are looking for someone to help us with our holiday let business, with the garden and also with some change overs and guest check ins. We have a team of housekeepers who work for us so your (paid) role (£9 an hour) would be as an extra pair of hands, often helping to make sure we are keeping on top of the laundry. Your role would also involve helping with any guest queries and check ins, so some experience of working in hospitality would be useful.

    We have several unique spaces that we rent out to guests - including a cottage, a tree-house and two converted horse-boxes. We also have two lotus bell tents during the summer months. Mells is a quintessentially English village and there are plenty of interesting things to see in the surrounding areas. Frome is the nearest town and has lots of funky vintage shops to explore. Bath is half an hour away - it it has every shop you can think of and is also one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

    We have had a the same couple living with us for the last year but they are heading back to Germany at the beginning of June so we are looking for someone who could come and help us as soon as possible so they can give you a proper handover.

    We prefer applications from people who have experience of doing workaway before, and have references available to view on the site.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon!

    We have created some unique properties for tourists coming to stay at our property, including a tree-house and two converted horse-boxes. We need help with guest check ins and some companionship for my elderly father in the evenings.
