    They will live in an old Manor House in beautiful, peaceful surroundings in the countryside. If they have their own transport there are many beautiful places to explore from wild Dartmoor to quaint Cornish fishing villages and beaches. I am a qualified teacher of English and offer English lessons if requested.

    Workaways will live in a double room or a family room in the Manor House with a separate bathroom. There is central heating and WiFi. There is a piano, keyboard and table tennis available. Cooking can be shared.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are many beautiful places to explore and visit. Workaways can walk on Dartmoor, visit historic houses and gardens, Cornish fishing villages and beaches, the Eden Project, and the cities of Plymouth and Exeter. Horse riding, fishing, climbing, can all be arranged. Hall Manor is in the countryside and there is next to no public transport, however I go to nearby towns regularly where there are local buses available. I have a dog and a cat, both live outside.
    I maintain a high standard of cleanliness and expect this to be respected.
