Small holding , young couple with 2 babies, live in area of outstanding natural beauty, rebuilding the cottage, keeping 4 acres of land outbuildings together, surrounded by ancient woodland , keeping it functional but working with nature.
Things we are currently doing that need help with; emptying a falling down barn, bonfires, loading trailer with rubbish, outdoor spring clean, harrowing with tractor, drystone wall building, vegetable gardening, feeding hens, gypsy caravan conversion, bnb bed change over. We feel three weeks is the max stay, it’s definitely the trial period.
You would be sleeping in a caravan style converted box away from the house but joining us for meals. Mostly working with us.
