    Help

    We would like help with the campsite such as grass cutting, cleaning tasks, caring for the animals, helping with the poly tunnel and gardening.
    Knowledge and a love of animals would be beneficial. Experience of working in a group and able to use common sense to help with practical tasks.
    Although we are on an arable farm, our business is focused on the campsite so this is where we need help and not with farming.
    We have had a lot of enquiries from families, however, this position is more suited to friends and couples, not children, sorry!
    A couple that can help with the campsite and also with our children would be ideal.
    A knowledge of cleaning, grass cutting and enjoyment of the countryside and animals would be beneficial.
    Thank you.

    What else ...

    The beach and hills are all within walking distance. We have bikes to borrow if needed. There is a local bus service from the top of our lane to visit 'Minehead' and 'Bridgwater.' We would be happy for Workawayers to spend days out with us as a family.
    We are generally very busy on the farm and Campsite and are here most days.
