I live in a Showmans Wagon in an ancient apple orchard. Most of my work involves the restoration of horse drawn wagons and other related projects. There's always work to be done. I'm happy to share my skills with keen people.
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
If you're good at carpentry that's great, but really I'm not looking for just skilled help. Sanding and painting of wagons would really help me out. There's so much to do, from cooking,cleaning of wagons to collecting and chopping wood. This summer my projects include building a new barn / workshop as well as maintaining the beautiful apple orchard.
I have a donkey 'Archie' who's a real character and he pulls a cart and may be ridden.
You can walk to the lovely village of pembridge (10 mins walk)
It's full of 14th century timber framed houses.

I have a number of Gypsy wagons you can stay in which are comfortable but basic.
There's a shower block and compost loo and also a washing machine.
I'm looking for happy, independent , dynamic people who are keen to help, learn and share experiences.
Please read this again before applying to help out at mine.
I really like to get things done but at the same time, fun and laughter is such an essential part of life.
If you are shy or very introverted and quiet I'd rather you apply to another host. I usually have more than one workawayer staying at a time so it's more of a family atmosphere.
Looking forward to sharing experiences with you all.
Fingers crossed for a sunny summer!
