    Description

    Hello, we are 2 ex-volunteers with an 18 year old daughter on a non commercial 2 acre holding situated on the English/Welsh border. Secluded but not isolated. Bordered by SSSI.(Site of special scientific interest) Coronation hay meadow nature reserve with unspoilt views to the Breidden Hills. 2 friendly cats. Aim to produce our own vegetables in raised bed garden. Work, average about 4-5 hours a day 5 days a week but this varies according to season, weather and priorities but is hopefully varied and instructive. Work can include Tree planting, digging, raking, cutting and moving fire wood, brush cutting and general tidying and gardening. The ability to push a full wheel barrow is essential. Renovating cottage at present but simple, comfortable,warm bedroom available in mobile home with limited WIFI. Other interests include walking, mountaineering, climbing, skiing, canoeing/kayaking and gliding. Long term helpers are welcome to join in with these at their own risk and expense. Friendly family atmosphere so adaptability, sociability and a sense of humour essential. Long term and overseas helper welcome but a good understanding of spoken english is required. NON SMOKERS ONLY please. If you are afraid of spiders or allergic to cats please do not apply. We like helpers to stay a minimum of 2 weeks if not longer and prefer helpers over 21 years of age. Sorry we no longer cater for vegans or vegetarians.
    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Keith, Angie and Rowan
