  • Description



    We are looking for a couple to come and help us with our house, garden, our dogs, cat, chickens and runner ducks.

    We live in a beautiful 400 year old ex-farmhouse in the heart of the idyllic Somerset countryside. We live on the edge of a small village with a pub, but only 5 mins drive from the nearest town which has shops. We are about 25 mins from Glastonbury and 40 minutes from the Jurassic Coast. There are walks to be had from the house and plenty of gorgeous villages to visit, many with cosy country pubs!
    You could live in our beautiful annexe with your own bedroom, bathroom, living room and small kitchen and therefore be self sufficient.
    Please get in touch if you have any questions!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The area is full of cultural opportunities from learning ancient crafts, to music and local made food and drink. Our current Workawayers have improved their English a lot by helping alongside us.

  • Help


    We are ideally looking for a couple to help us with a variety of tasks. But the key thing is walking the dogs whilst I am unable to due to my broken ankle and my husband is working.
    In addition, we have some indoor decorating tasks that we need help with, as well as heavy gardening, general maintenance and some housework. It would be amazing to find someone who can do minor electrical tasks, or some plumbing but this is not essential. We have two friendly dogs who love to be walked and the chickens need cleaning and feeding. We would expect to discuss and agree with the helper prior to their starting what their abilities and dislikes are so they can do the tasks that appeal more to them.

    What else ...

    On your days off you could visit great sites like Stonehenge, Glastonbury and the Jurassic Coast. There are buses into town from the bottom of the road. It is a great area for cycling but you would need to bring your own bikes.
