    Description

    We have spent the last two years landscaping our large garden. Now is time to plant it. At the moment we are busy planting weeding and fertilising. The leaves have started to fall so clearing those is also on the list of general garden maintenance.

    We have a lovely house with separate annex with wifi kitchen bathroom. The garden is just under eight acres. It's beautiful here in the Ashdown Forest with plenty of wildlife and is famous for the fictional character Winnie The Poo.
    We have a good bus route to Brighton on the coast and the pretty town of Royal Tunbridge Wells which has a good train connection to central London.

    We had another baby alpaca this year and just added to our menagerie are two working cocker spaniel puppies! We also have 9 chickens,10 indian runner ducks and hundreds of fish. The animals are relatively easy to look after, needing feeding daily and pens/paddocks clearing twice a week at most.

    We sometimes also need a little bit of help inside the house but most of the jobs are outside currently.

    Help with a big planting project in the garden. Approximately 5 hours per day 5 hours per week. We like good food. Sometimes you would eat with us and other times you can be independent and cook for yourselves.

    Working hours could sometimes be flexible to suit both of us and allow you to make the most of your time in the countryside, local towns, London and English life as much as you can during your visit.

    The countryside here is beautiful.

    A bus can take you to the towns of Lewes/Uckfield/Crowborough/Tunbridge Wells. Trains from these towns go to London and the seaside at Brighton. The bus stop is about 20 minutes walk from the house but we can usually assist with transport to the bus stop or local towns.
