I am a working mother with 2 children and 2 friendly cats, I have a nice house and a beautiful garden but struggling to find time to paint fences, walls landscape it and to try make it low maintenance.
Help in the house
House is in central Oban, a beautiful coastal tourist town, close to all transport links. There are lots of beautiful places to explore in Argyll, both Island and mainland, as well as places steeped in history.
I can offer a comfy double bedroom in a house with 3 bathrooms for a short stay maybe 1-3 weeks in return for help in the garden, this could imvolve landscaping or painting of fences and garden walls or maintenance of shed so someone practical who enjoys being outside.
Probably best suited to 1 person, but would consider 2.
Say someone was there for a week they could help for 3 days and have 4 to go explore. Totally flexible.
English only, my children speak Gaelic.
Double bedroom, comfy bed, someone who would like to eat with the family and share meals.
Oban has ferry links to many scottish Island, Mull, Kerrera and Lismore being most suitable for day trips.
There are various castles and historical monuments in the area. Bus links to Fort William and Lochgilphead and train links to Glasgow with various stops. Lots of wildlife, hillwalking and cycle tracks.
Oban has various pubs and shops and supermarkets.
