    Description

    Living in a beautiful cottage in a rural area near Bantry, West Cork, I am primarily looking for help with the garden. Overgrown border shrubs need chainsaw attention and there's bamboo to eradicate. I want to create vegetable plots, too. This would be the start of a large garden project, although there's always inside work like painting and decorating to do on bad weather days. Having experience in safely using a chainsaw is a must for this. In return for a few hours work 5 days a week, you'd have use of the house, double bedroom and shower room. If you have a car, there's space in the drive. If not, you're welcome to use the bicycle. I'd be happy to drop you into town some evenings for a less rural social life. I'm an early morning sea swimmer and you'd be welcome to join me. I've WIFI at the house.

    The cottage is over 200 years old but was renovated around 15 years ago so has heating, water and electricity, thankfully. My home is around 7km from Bantry. It's in a valley and is a detached property. I've great neighbours who look out for the place and for me. The double bedroom with ensuite shower room is downstairs. The views from the room over the valley are amazing. There's a basic kitchen although good enough for any kind of cooking.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I've TV, DVD player and an XBox. Peace and quiet of the area makes reading a lovely pastime. There's cycling and walking, too, of course. Although lifts to town are available (and back on some days) where there are pubs and restaurants, this is not the choice for you if you're a party animal!
