    We need help mostly around the farm and house. Nothing to difficult just odds and ends that have gotten away from us. We don't provide paid work as nothing we will ask you to do involves any businesses.

  • Accommodation


    We offer comfortable rooms in our home with easy access to everything.
    We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner. We would prefer it if you didn't have any special food requirements as it makes cooking for the family quite complicated. We all eat together and enjoy conversation.
