    Description

    2 week stay in August September 2021

    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.

    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 am specifically looking from mid August to mid September 2021 for a couple but a single if you have great feedback/references.
    I am going away and need pet sitters for my dog and cat. They are like my children so you need to be a serious pet lovers and keen walkers. There’s also lots of gardening to do and house maintenance.

    I live in a beautiful cottage on the south coast so this is a really great opportunity to have a lovely holiday whilst you Workaway.

    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.
