  • Description

    Description

    We (Sarah & David) moved 2 years ago 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. 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. We'd like some help with gardening & polytunnel and construction of outdoor compost toilet. It would be great if you were able to operate a heavy petrol strimmer and hedge cutter. You will have your own caravan and deck in a private garden. We would not be able to cook for you as we rent out the house to guests and we stay in a small basic space but we would provide all your food - we therefore think this may be best suited to a couple or 2 friends. Please note we are quite remote so would be good if you could drive. Mustn’t be afraid of getting wet!!!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    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.
