  • Description


    Hi we are looking for a female to join our family on our working arable Farm. We have 2 children, George (8) and Annabel (7).

    We are looking for someone to help look after the children during the school holidays from July - early September 2020. We can be flexible on start/leave dates but we need someone for ALL of AUGUST.

    I work from home so will be about most of the time.

    Although we live on a farm We are only 10 minutes from the local town, Howden. There is a train station and direct train to London in 2 hours. We are 30 minutes from York, just under 1 hour from Leeds. The coast, Bridlington is 1 hour away.

    We ideally need someone from The middle of July through to September.

    Look forward to hearing from you.
