  • Description


    We are about to start building the geodesic dome greenhouse help with this would be appreciated

    My name is Ann (I live in an 17th century farmhouse (not a working farm) in the beautiful Cumbrian fells on the edge of the Lake District.This is a old 4 bedroom building which I fell in love with several years ago with spectacular views of the solway coast,and lake district

    A good location if you want peace and quiet and wish to get away from it all, or if you are interested in art, photography,walking, hiking, enjoy open spaces and outdoor life. If you are not at one with a rural locality then this is not for you

    We have a warm and friendly atmosphere and a healthy respect for nature and the creatures that live in it. I am hospitable,genuine,trustworthy and self aware

    I share my home with my 17 year old foster child Dylan who has special needs, and cat Pagan. We are nine miles from the nearest city and two miles from the nearest village.There is a limited bus service 5 minutes walk from the house and an hourly bus service to the city from the village. I am also on hand to drop you off and pick you up from bus or train stations,or you can travel to the city with me by car when I am going there

    I am recovering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and have low energy levels, and at times experience complete exhaustion.Enthusiastic helper fluent in English, with initiative would really be welcome to help with ironing, cleaning, cooking, gardening and computers. 5 hours per day 5 days weekly but on this we can be flexible.
