  • Description


    You can come and share my lovely Victorian apartment and garden in Buckfastleigh in one of the most renowned regions in England on the edge of the stunning Dartmoor national park, near the beautiful beaches of the South Devon coast and alongside the incredible kayaking region of the dart valley river. My passions are the wonderful outdoors on our doorstep, yoga, holistic therapies, and well being in general.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Experience life in beautiful South Devon with me, my daughter at times and my 2 lovely lurchers dogs. I am involved in holistic therapies, yoga, and wellbeing, so like to share this way of being.
    Alongside, there are often guests staying in the room, often interesting guests from around the world who come to stay for local courses varying from things such as Shamanic training on the moors, African dance in the town to Drs conferences at Buckfast Abbey and holistic funeral training on the dart.
    The small town of Buckfastleigh is on the doorstep with its local ameneties and You will have the beautiful South Devon countryside from the moors to the beaches, to the river dart valley nearby; the internationally renowned Dartington hall and Schaumacher college and Riverford farm just up the rd. Totnes town with its quirky shops and characters is a short bus ride or steam railway ride away.
    There is a great deal to see and experience locally which makes this area such a popular destination for travellers and tourists alike.

    I have 2 beautiful lurchers who require a certain amount of daily care mostly dog walking and some loving attention! I also have some general household and gardening tasks.
    Some regular household tasks such as hoovering, cooking, recycling, bins, washing and cleaning. Thinking about getting some painting done around the house and small DIY jobs.
    Some garden jobs in my little garden and terrace such as seasonal jobs, pruning apple trees, work in the vegetable patch, flowers, weeding, hedges, clipping, cutting back etc.
    I'm not very good with anything I.T so sometimes could do with help with doing stuff on my computer from basics
