  • Description


    We are a couple in a civil partnership so LGTB friendly. We have 2 adult children each and some grand children. Dee likes to practise her French.
    We live in a 4 hundred year old cottage. Keasts is a smallholding and we aim to produce all our own food. We are not veggie but are veggie friendly.
    Volunteers would have their own room and bathroom. Accommodation is good. . Keasts isn't really suitable for small children. Dog by agreement. Sorry, no smoking in the house.
    We are equidistant between Plymouth, Exeter and the north Devon coast. Directly opposite Dartmoor National Park so good for walking and on the Route 28 cycle path.
    We just want help from people willing to join in and share our lifestyle. We think volunteers would get bored if they spent more than 2 weeks here but we are very friendly and love to meet other people. This is Devon. You need boots!
