    THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR MESSAGES BUT AT THE MOMENT WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY MORE WORKAWAYS - THAT WILL PROBABLY CHANGE IN THE FUTURE.

    After years living in London, I now live in a quaint hilltop town in Dorset in a large 2 bedroom house with about an acre of garden. The town boasts stunning views, a few independent shops but is generally quiet. There are cafes, a small museum and all basic amenities. There is a bus service to London via Salisbury and to the local, 10min drive, train direct to London.

    I am working almost non-stop on my health (suffering after a major accident years ago), as a volunteer at a charity or the hospital or attempting to make my house habitable. I have family & friends to see at weekends either at the house or away. I am happy to explore the local area as I have not had time as yet but this will be on a limited basis.

    The house is rather dilapidated but does have a functioning kitchen, shower room and bedrooms and I am looking for all manner of help, to get get the house straight and the garden producing vegetables again.

    Accommodation

    Possibly sharing a bedroom with other workaways depending on numbers. Other rooms can be make into bedrooms in due course, with help.
    There is some traffic noise at night and so earplugs can be useful.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Ideally you will be 21+, self-sufficient at weekends and responsible for looking after the house when I am away.
    I would like to start with a week or two and if we both get on, continue by arrangement.
    I am happy for singles or couples and would like to share the cooking.
