    Description

    We welcome you at a beautiful ocologically build woodhome close to a big lake! Our wild ' garden' is 2.000 m2 big with a lot of berries and greens. We love our horses and a few dogs running around in the garden and holiday guests in the summer. We are searching for help to train and take care of the horses, house, the garden, and the animals. We are also looking forward to realize our dream of making the house and the property more self-sustainable by collecting rain water and creating a vegetable garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the unique opportunity to stay at a beautiful Woodhouse near the lake and close to the ocean. I will show you what plants you can eat from the garden. You only need to walk five minutes to reach the lake, and there are multiple good routs where you can enjoy a walk. There is a bus stop not far from the house to the nearest city called Eutin. There are train connections from Eutin to Hamburg! Hamburg is a great international city anybody would want to visit! You can also take the bike for a ride! The Ocean is 40 minutes by car. This is also a great opportunity for somebody who wants to improve their German.
