  • Description


    We would love positive, enthusiastic, happy, smiley people to come and join us in our home.
    We live in a 500 year old farmhouse (no longer a working farm just a few chickens now!) in Widecombe in the Moor which is in the Dartmoor National Park, Dartmoor is visited by many people from all over the world and is very popular destination. Our children are all at University now so we are in a big house by ourselves (apart from 2 dogs) We have a lot of gardening to do, so keen gardeners very welcome!! Especially gardeners that don't mind a bit of rain!! Sometimes there is the possibility of helping out with some carpentry work. We could really do with some help and can help you with your English if needed and showing you beautiful Dartmoor and surrounding areas. We are happy to give lifts to nearest bus stop for days out exploring.
    We would really like to learn some Spanish if possible!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Widecombe in the Moor is a small village on Dartmoor that is really quite famous. Especially for Widecombe Fair in September. People come from all over the world to visit here, there is a lot to see with plenty of walking and many people to meet. We would be pleased if you could join us on walks on Dartmoor with our dogs and we are happy to drop off and pick up when we visit local towns and cities. We often visit the beach\sea\coastal villages when the weather is good or bad and you are welcome to join us on our trips if you wish to. We are happy to give lifts to nearest bus stop for days out exploring.

    We have lots of outdoor projects which we need to get done, gardening, fencing, hedge work, pressure washing etc. We love people that are motivated and are able to work on their own initiative and enjoy socialising. We would also like to learn some Spanish if anyone has the patience!
