  • Description


    Andy operates a small B&B in Keswick Cumbria 5 bedrooms of Good-Quality accommodation, we were awarded 4 stars and a Gold award from the very nice man at the AA, I’m looking for someone to help me in my everyday tasks ,running the B&B and keeping the very high quality of cleanliness in our guest rooms. I have a very nice daughter Kate who is 14 yrs old Kate lives with me. I also have a young dog called shy who is adorable!

    I'm looking for someone who has a happy and friendly personality and is able to present a good welcome greeting to our guests, a person who is available for a long period, is able to clean to a very high standard, able to work alone and to be very thorough, this requires dedication and spotless cleaning.
    Some of our days are very long and some very short, you will get free time when we're not busy, so I need my workawayers to be flexible.
    I would appreciate it if we can take turns cooking dinner.
    I live in a very nice area surrounded by lakes and mountains ideal if you like walking or rock climbing or any extreme outdoor sports this position may suit you, we BBQ on mountains some evenings, climb on the local crags, swim in the lake and walk over the fells.

    non-smokers preferred.
