  • Description

    Description

    We've been working on our own to bring this beautiful property back to its full glory, but could do with a few extra hands to help with pruning trees, cutting grass, putting up fences, making paths etc etc.

    We offer accommodation, fresh home cooked food. We are veggie so no meat or fish, but plenty of homemade cheese (happy to teach how to do this if interested), fresh homemade bread, and the occasional takeaway pizza from a brilliant place we have found a few miles away.

    We have three female dogs who are both friendly. One is large, a rhodesian ridgeback, another ridgeback puppy who is growing fast (not yet 6 months) and the nutty dalmatian.

    Help could also be needed with looking after the cats and dogs we have rescued and who live in pens outside. And of course our brood of chickens that give us fresh eggs every day.

    Non smokers only please and no residency applications. Only genuine willing hands.
