    We are looking for couples and solo travelers to join our small friendly team, ideally for the whole of next Season - April until mid October 2023.

    We run a hotel, and garden centre. The bulk of the help we need is in the hotel and grounds around it - very occasionally, we need an extra hand down at the garden centre too. Our team is small and we all turn our hands to lots of tasks: in the hotel, that can be table waiting , housekeeping, reception work, food preparation, etc. In the garden and garden centre that might be log splitting (we have a machine), weeding, plant care, watering, strimming, leaf clearing, assisting customers, etc.

    We are a small team and while we work hard, we have a lot of fun, too. We have a few year-round staff and lots of our seasonal workers return from one year to the next.

    All positions at Viewfield are paid so you must be eligible to work in the UK.

    Accommodation is provided.
