    I am seeking people to help me with:
    - general DIY including creative carpentry/building work
    - the daily chores of life in the house (shopping, cooking, washing, ironing, cleaning)
    - dog-walking
    - gardening.

    I am looking for people who are trustworthy and willing to help carefully, mindfully, and independently on given tasks.

    I have no restrictions concerning life preferences such as vegetarianism, but I am looking for non-smokers. Single people or attached couples are both fine.

    The house has two double bedrooms and one single, for the use of Travellers. There is a long garden with a pond, and we are in a quiet location, with nearby woods to walk in. Chesham is around an hour’s tube journey to London (on the Metropolitan Line), and is a quiet town, with plenty of shopping facilities, set in the beautiful countryside of the Chiltern Hills.
