I am a busy woman who needs help with gardening and growing on a 24 acre plot. Time for exploring the surrounding area with or without support is available. Keen cyclist i am looking for a student or a couple who would like to visit our beautiful area and stay in a large house. Own room and bathroom with food provided, washing facilities etc included. I am a 5 minute walk from the local village with a post office, shop and pub but in own acreage. Access to Edinburgh and Glasgow by train. I am easy going and like to travel preferring to leave house occupied. Within two miles there is an activity centre providing climbing and water sports whilst the area itself is a dark sky park.

I have a large evolving garden that i would welcome your input in helping us design. Many mature trees and shrubs, the house and gardens are 110 years old and needing new planting. The house is delightful and needs simple maintenance such as gutter clearing, mowing as well as creating in the garden etc. I need help to supplement my efforts.
large house, own large bedroom and bathroom with shared sitting rooms, dining room, study, laundry etc. The house is very traditional with modern touches such as dishwasher, washing machine etc.
I am an easy going household present at home most of the time, sociable and hosting many cyclists. There is bus transport daily to surrounding towns and railway stations and the local village is a five minute walk but, when I feel comfortable there will be a car available. My expectation is that you help on projects we would like to achieve this year such as reworking some areas of the walled vegetable garden, drive to local town, help with lawned areas and newly planted orchard as well as some painting and decorating in house. In return we will keep the fridge and cellar stocked and cook with you. If you drive you can have use of a car on weekend subject to insurance.
