    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are close to the Welsh wildlife center and lots of woodland walking trails. Also we live next to the river Teifi and can take you on it in our 3 man canoe.
    Right on our doorstep there are various unspoilt quiet and beautiful beaches.
    Our house is close to Cardigan town where there are quirky shops, supermarkets, theatre and leisure centre with swimming pool.
    There are eco communities close by here and lots of local woodland and craft activities on going in the surroundings.
    We are practicing permaculture principals as we design a forest garden on our land. You can learn alongside us how to grow veggies and fruit trees. Fire pit and hammocks are available in our little woodland area.

    Looking for single or couple to help with general gardening/tidying/fencing/animal care. We are a couple based just outside Cardigan, West Wales in a beautiful peaceful location. Great for watersports or walkers as easy access to beaches, river & routes. Looking for approx 3 hours a day, 5 days a week in exchange for use of small caravan or alternativly a park up for a van. We have a bathroom and hot shower, electric hookup, wifi. Evening meal provided we are mainly vegetarian (prepared and shared together). Up to one month stay initially. Its important that you like dogs as we have two family dogs of our own, who are very friendly and we may ask you to walk them sometimes.
