  • Description

    Description

    My elderly parents and I live in a forest near the north sea. We have a little farm with horses, dogs, cats, chicken, a cow and sheep. I´m a teacher for disabled children in a village nearby which means I´m at work between 7 and 2 during the daytime (sometimes later). on Saturdays I help in a social community in our village, which might be of interest for you.

    In my house is a big guest room for you inside the house and a wooden cabin in the garden so you can choose which one suits you more.

    We would cook vegetarian or vegan together or if you prefer traditional cooking with meat, my mother will satisfy you with her cooking.
    I can aswell host couples or parents with a child.

    I need a person who is reliable and independent. It would be great if you could come in second half of February or March. I also need someone for April and mabey May.

    During this time I start to prepare the meadow for the animals ( fetching the cut down wood from the field, filling holes in the ground with compost, putting up new fence poles etc.) I´ve also started to build a composting toilet but it´s not so easy to finish it by myself, so one or two hands more would be a great help :). In April I get loads of chopped wood which has to be stacked. In springtime or early summer I would like to paint some of the rooms in my house.

    Our cats live inside of the house, so you shouldn´t be allergic and we have 3 dogs who live outside. (aswell as 2 sheep, 1 Zebu, 3 horses and quite a few chickens)


    We are always very interested in meeting people from anywhere in the world. It would be nice to let you be a part of our little family for the time you are here :) So feel welcome!
    The three of us speak english fluently.
    Kind regards,
    Desiree

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    we live very near to the railway station (15 min walk). by train you can reach Hamburg, Berlin and a lot more towns easily. In summer there's a lake were we often go swimming. the north sea is only 50 km from our place. It's easy to reach by train. there are a few wellness resorts nearby, where it´s nice to take a day off for relaxing and going to sauna.
    If you like nature, you will like it here very much!
    There are also restaurants, pubs, cinema, shops etc if you need a bit town life and if you are a friend of culture - there are museums and music events around us. if you like yoga, there is a very good yoga teacher in our village. A neighbourhood village is very famous for a deep chalk lake for scuba diving.
