  • Description


    My elderly parents and I live in a forest near the north sea. We have a little farm with horses, dogs, a cow and sheep.

    I need a person who is reliable and independent. It would be great if you could come in march so I can introduce you into everything.

    As I have to go into a Hospital for 3 weeks end of march until easter and I need someone who will take care for my three horses (taking them in and out the stables in the morning and evening, bringing them to their paddock, feeding, cleaning the stables and paddock from menure) and the 3 dogs (going for walks over the meadow once or twice a day). Feeding the sheep and zebu.

    My parents will be there to give you advice and my mother will cook delicious food for you.

    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)

    For my guests there is a little cabin in the garden and in winter a guest room inside of the house, so you have your own private space.

    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,

    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.
    If you like nature, you will like it here very much!
    There are also a lot of 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 dancing - there's a very good ballett-studio near our place.
