Our garden has been neglected by the previous owners for a number of years and needs a lot of work. We are planning to build a hot tub and new water tank as well as more vegetable patches and magical areas to sit. The polytunnel needs constant attention as well as some fixing jobs. On the days you help out we will feed you lunch and dinner but for a maximum of 4 days a week. We have a patterdale terrier called Ernie and a collie rotttweiler cross called Tia. Ernie can be a bit grumpy but generally they are both friendly. Ernie has epilepsy so can have the occasional seizure I would need someone who is ok to experience this as it can be a little upsetting. It’s about once every 6 weeks he has a seizure so it may not happen but I would rather you were aware. Tia is energetic and loves playing and running in the garden and by the river. We have wonderful walks near to our place that you will enjoy if this is your kind of thing.
