  • Description


    We are looking for help with our animals and garden in a spectacular seaside location at the end of a remote peninsular. Maggie runs a small holding with lots of goats, sheep, ducks and chickens. She also keeps a few horses away from home.

    There is always lots of work to do looking after the animals who are fed mostly on recycled foods. The boys are at school but have their jobs to do at home everyday and both are interested in breeding rare poultry. They are keen do it your selfers and love fishing and potting for crab and lobster.

    This area is spectacularly scenic, we live right beside the beach and there is a lively tourist scene in the summer. There is some local music, fantastic walks and a couple of decent pubs. Anyone interested in history, geology or mythology will find plenty of interest here. There is however no public transport and the nearest town is approx 10 miles away.
