  • Description

    Description

    A 27 acre property currently home of 8 horses, 2 dogs and a cat. Owners are both busy osteopaths. One who treats mostly animals. We have a coal forge for those interested in knife making and hubby is restoring classic cars and building a horse truck. Wifey is also an artist but currently mostly into combined driving horse trials and needs help with the horses.We also need help with cooking evening meals,general gardening, farm and house maintenance and general housekeeping chores. Hubby is a meat eater and wifey is gluten free. If you desire company all day then we are probably not the homestay for you as we are working. Most suited to those who enjoy being independent (maybe a couple) but enjoying evening company and possibly weekend activities.There are regular buses from Auckland to Warkworth but we live 10 minutes out of town so a drivers license is advantageous.
