  • Description


    We bought the lodge 2 years ago and have worked tirelessly since then restoring the house to its previous glory using our own skills as well as local artisans. We are now ready to move outside with the aim of making the grounds as fabulous as the house. We need help with clearing, re building stone walls, working in the organic veg garden and orchard and planting.
    We have an old Roman way that once cleared will be a really magical place. The lodge is immersed in nature were wildlife including deer and foxes are securely fenced in as no hunting is allowed on our land
