  • Description


    This is a fabulous opportunity for somebody to join our busy working family. We would like a happy, energetic, practical person to be a family help/childcare/housework/cleaning for 25 hours a week in return for full board and £80+ "pocket money" - negotiable. There would also be the opportunity to work some hours between 11 - 5 during the day on the farm. (This would be additional pay at £7:05 plus per hour more depending on age) We have a busy farm shop, restaurant, arable and rare-bread set up here. No day is ever the same!
    We are looking for someone for a longer than 2 month stay if possible.

    Peter is 7 and Dorothy is 6 and they are both tremendous fun and hard work!
