    This is a big House, there is a variety of jobs to do depending on the weather. When the weather is fine we are working in the garden, mowing the lawn, growing vegetables etc Inside the work varies from painting to making curtains, cleaning windows and light domestic duties to help maintain and keep the place clean.
    We work Monday to Friday and relax and have fun at the weekend.
