    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn English, learn about farming and also about Christianity if that interests you as we are a Christian farm and there are some musicians living here who like to sing and play around a campfire. Others like to pray as we plan to set up a retreat centre.

    There are a variety of things you can do which could be farming with sheep, goats, cattle, cats, dogs, horses and chickens ...... or you can do building work ie. we are renovating a barn - insulating it to build a recording studio; there are also various DIY repair jobs which doing around the farm - could be helping to put up a fence ...; you can also do some property maintenance in Bristol; There is also some computer and office help for someone who likes this type of task together with house work, cleaning and cooking; there is also a vegetable garden which needs to replanted and maintained as well as an orchard with apples, pears and plums. Another option for those with cooking skills could be to volunteer in a Charity cafe in Bristol for the odd day of the week. So theres a lot of variety and options. We have only had this farm for for a short period.

    There are lots of amazing walks and cycle tracks nearby. We have spare bikes and helmets if you want to explore the area. Ideal for someone wanting to get away from the big city life and be part of a more communal home setting. Bristol a big city is only 30 mins away by bus or train and Weston Super mare a seaside holiday resort is about 6 miles away also accessible by bus.
