  • Description

    Description

    We live in a rural part of the Scottish Borders, at the foot of the Cheviot Hills and we're developing our home and acre of land into a place to live comfortably and relax. We grow and produce our own vegetables and fruit. We have a huge vegetable garden and family garden that need near-constant care and, as we are busy running our own business we have limited time to keep on top of everything that needs doing. We’ve hosted volunteers for the past 5 years and this is a part of our lives here that we feel we benefit from the most: we get to complete our projects and make new friends at the same time. We're a friendly family who love music, food and learning about other cultures.
