  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of five living a lovely life on a small holding in rural Somerset. We have various animals including a dog, cat and ponies. Sometimes we have pigs. There is always so much to do outside and we never seem able to get it all finished. We need at least two people to help with preparing our garden for spring. We also need help in finishing to build a shed, preparing outside windows for painting and possibly a bit of fencing and land management.
    Accommodation is in a room attached to our house with a separate entrance and sometimes is a beautifully converted barn used as a holiday let. All meals provided usually with the whole family. We would prefer 2 helpers.

    Most of the help is outside and physical. It ranges from weeding and pruning to digging and demolishing. In addition we are in the process of putting in a polytunnel and will need help with this and setting it up once erected.

    The nearest bus stop is 2kl away where you can get anywhere in Somerset. We do have a few bicycles we will lend and there are beautiful walks around. There are no neighbours here. The nearest pub is a 20 minute walk. I am always driving children here and there and very willing to give lifts if needed.
