Myself Louise, husband Martyn and two children Bella and Evie are looking for some help this August and September 2019 to catch up on gardening, painting and general DIY.
We live in the Sidlaw Hills just north of Dundee in sunny Scotland. We have an old farm cottage that sits on 1 acre of land, our location is rural and very beautiful. We are surrounded by beautiful hills which are perfect for hill walking and off road cycling.
We are a 10 minute drive from the city so it is the perfect mix of countryside and city life.
We are looking for help with;
Painting of wooded sheds,
Gardening (cutting grass, weeding, strimming)
Dry stane dyke repairs,
and general maintenance of our space.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
As we have two young girls we are often hill walking , cycling or going to a museum in the city at the weekends. We try to pack in lots of learning and cultural trips as much as we can. We are only 1 hour from Edinburgh and 1.5 hrs form Glasgow so we try to get a few city trips made each holiday. The coast is half an hour away and is stunning. Local attractions include Camperdown Zoo and Park, The Dundee science Centre, The Dundee Transport Museum, The V&A, and much more. Workaway travellers would be more than welcome on all of our trips. We would also be more than happy to organize and help with any further travel arraignments.
We would be happy to have as much help as you could lend, be it 1 week or 2.
We will be flexable if workers have plans to do special activities.
We offer food & accommodation, in fantastic surroundings. The food is home-cooked with local produce. As you'll live as part of our family, we expect you to participate in the daily chores.
We have wi-fi, and can lend you shot of bicycles to get around.
We have a large garden (1 acre) which is mostly trees, grass and vegetable beds. It has been let go this past year due to work commitments so we are looking for someone to trim hedges & bushes. Strim and tame the borders. Weed the strawberry & vegetable patches. Cut the grass. Paint the workshops and out houses.
Depending on the weather, we have a lovely two berth caravan with awning that will be set up in our spacious garden. You will have full access to to the house facilities. Or if the weather is too wet we have a spare room.
We live one mile from a small village called Auchterhouse. The village is a sleepy place but has a fantastic community of friendly people. We are surrounded by farmland so our project would be perfect for someone/people who would enjoy a quiet and tranquil workaway experience.
