Myself and Richard are a young couple from a working beef and sheep farm in Devon, England. Recently we purchased a derelict farmhouse which we have refurbished over a period of 2-3 years to create our beautiful home. We are aged 23 and 27 and a are fun and outgoing couple. I traveled overseas as a 'Workaway'er' so know how daunting & rewarding it can be.
The help is varied and satisfying. Because of the variety of tasks, I am sorry we can not take workaways that do not speak good English.
We are only looking to host 1 traveler at a time for approximately 1-2 weeks at a time. The time can certainly be extended but we would like to meet with you first so on the first instant we will not commit to host any traveler for a period longer that 2 weeks. Please be assured that we are a very friendly couple but because a traveler will be living in our home we would like to meet first and we really hope it will work for both parties and there is a possibility depending on jobs etc for somebody to stay longer.
I have received many enquirers for 2 travelers and enquirers for long stays, please understand that this doesn't work for us.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
We live in a beautiful rural part of the Devon Countryside reknowned for it's natural beauty. The farm totals about 300 acres and farm life for Richard is very versatile so we would expect a traveller to fit right in and embrace our culture. It is likely a traveller will benefit from new experiences, new sites and fresh ideas. We want travellers to have an insight into how we live. Both Richard and I have a strong intrest in farming, rural matters but we are young and easy going and look forward to introducing other people and cultures into our home. I work part time so will be around for half of the week.
We have been converting a derelict house to our current home but we now require a helping pair of hands. There are a vast array of jobs we need help with. The house is almost finished but there are still some rooms that require some time but we can be quite flexible with the jobs to suit the traveller. The types of jobs; Help around the house, painting , cleaning, gardening, farming, building.
A comfortable double bedroom in our recently converted home. Please note that at present the only shower room we have in the house is downstairs. The kitchen, living space, showeroom etc. will be shared with ourselves.
We are approx 7 miles from the large town of Tiverton and South Molton. There is a regular bus service available from both destinations. Where possible we will try and help with lifts. I will certainly enlighten any traveller with good places to visit, bus times tables etc.
We look forward to hearing for you, happy travels!
