We (Sarah & David) have recently moved from the UK to the beautiful Mealagh Valley 20 minutes drive from Bantry. We have an old farmhouse with attached annex and 2 old outbuildings waiting to be restored. We have around 3 acres of wonderful gardens and fields with mountain and bay views, and a yoga dome! Please note: this is no longer a working farm and there are no animals. Also needing help with clearing land & polytunnel and construction of outdoor compost toilet. You will have your own en-suite bedroom in the annex and 3 meals a day - we are vegetarian but happy for you to eat meat if you wish! Please note we are quite remote so would be good if you could drive. Looking for help in November & December. Mustn’t be afraid of getting wet!!!
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
Learning new skills alongside us, and no doubt making mistakes alongside us some of the time too! You would be free to use the dome for yoga practice or the ‘sky room’ with expansive mountain views for meditation or relaxation.
Help with restoration of old stone building, involving use of lime plaster.
Help with construction of compost toilet in yoga dome field.
Help with preparing polytunnel for spring.
Help with land clearance (brambles etc).
Own en-suite bedroom in attached annex - you would also have your own little kitchen and living room should you ever want to spend a bit of time on your own. All food provided, meals will be in the big farmhouse kitchen.
There is no local transport but there are lovely river walks very close by. We are 20 minutes drive from the nearest town of Bantry so ideally looking for someone with own transport- we also have plenty of parking for a large van/camper.
