    Please feel free to ask for any more information you would like. We are a very relaxed family just looking for a bit of help around the garden / with the children. We currently have a very basic set up - I.e there is no running water but it has to be pulled up by hand from the well..so hot showers are not on the menu. But we are working on an extension after which we will install a good solar system and get pumps running etc. Showering at the moment consists of a bucket bath sp please don't come if you need hot water and a hairdryer or you will be disappointed. If you need to use a lot of technology you may also need to bring your own portable battery pack and solar panel for charging phone / laptop etc. Animal friendly helpers are important as there is a dog, cat, pony and chickens on site...though one of the jobs we have to do is build a chicken coop as it's hard to find the eggs at the moment!
