  • Description


    I have hosted many workaways in the past but I have now moved to a much smaller property and need a lot less help. I have space for someone that is a keen gardener, painter, animal lover. It would be ideal to find someone who is good with online sales as I am trying to sell a lot of things since I have a much smaller house.
    I live on my own with one dog and one cat.
    I haven't had workawayers for a couple of years and so I am starting again, I have a lot of gardening/clearing to do, would love a great cook.

    Please make sure that you have the right visa before you apply for this job. If you are not from the EU you cannot volunteer on a visitors visa and I am not willing to accept people without the correct paperwork, thank you.

    At this time I am moving my antique furniture business to my home from a large barn, so I need help preparing the items for sale, listing items online and towards the end of your stay moving what I have left to my house.
    There is also plenty to do at the house keeping the garden in good order, preparing the vegetable patch for summer, house maintenance and cooking up fabulous meals for us all to eat.
    Thank you

    It would be good to add some info here about the space you have for digital nomads to use or how your internet connection works, it's usually important to have a decent wi-fi connection for those working online.
