  • Description


    Located in Keswick our stunning guest house overlooking the mountains and close to the Lake is looking for a person or couple to help with cooking and front of house at our guest house and cafe. Your accommodation is modern en-suite bedroom in the building with access to a kitchen for your meals. Your hours would include weekends but not evenings. You would be paid the UK National Minimum Wage for the hours that you worked which would not exceed 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. We would love to find a hard working person who enjoy the outdoors as the role allows you to be able to take advantage of our ideal location and flexible working day.

    In addition to our Guest House we also have a cafe and you are able to top up your hours there as a general cafe assistant.

    I look forward to sharing our amazing part of the world with one of you.

    Keswick is the heart of the English Lake District and you would be meeting a wealth of different guests each day as well as being in a friendly local community. We are a family run business and our small team of existing staff are all now a part of that now extended family!. Keswick has visitors who are here short term and long term from all over the world and benefits from being a friendly town that welcomes everyone. Anyone new to the area doesnt feel "new" for long as before you know it you have made some great contacts and you are on an adventure to one of the great many things to see and do here. We have fantastic connections with other local businesses and the area is flooded with opportunities for anyone who likes to be outdoors. I am really excited to be able to offer the right person a fantastic job which requires hard work but in such a manner that your hours are never more than 5 per day meaning you can really get stuck into the local area and take advantage of our phenomenal location. We have 214 mountains called Wainwrights so your first challenge may be to tick every one off before you move on to your next adventure!.
