  • Description


    Im wanting to make the garden and home into a working retreat, so help with the vegetable garden and making a lovely zen place and painting up the house is the main things, if someone is interested in woodwork that would be great as looking to make a wishing well, begoda etc, Im also in the middle of creating a Herbarium and pond in front garden

    A passion for gardening and cooking would also be a great advantage I am predominately plant based but will eat eggs if from happy chickens etc ,This will suit someone who is looking to get away from society as very quiet , I work during the day so apart from my friend who is staying at the mo you will be on your own, so if you love having a challenge and working on your own inititive and like meditation, peace quiet and the country this is the place for you .. Accomodation is lovely but basic, I teach reiki and am a holistic practitioner and do Qi gong,
    I provide food for 3 full meals a day, ( A lot of the time you will be preparing your own food and if at the right time of the year it will be organic and out of the garden, . ( Please bring your own snacks etc if you eat between meals) . Namaste Hils x

    That would depend on size, I have a little Renault Traffic camper so something like that would fit on my driveway too, but not a big double base or something sorry that would be too big.
