  • Description

    Description

    At the moment we are looking for some help with tidying up the gardens of our two holiday cottages. It would be great to have someone with experience as we will be very busy in spring with laming on the farm.

    We have an 85-acre farm, 120 ewes, 180 calves, numerous chickens, 4 dogs, 6 geese, 4 farm cats and need some help! On the farm you'll be part of our daily routine, feeding, cleaning and cuddling our various shapes and sizes of animals.

    (On Hold - And we have a new project!, We hope to convert John's old DAF lorry into a fabulous glamping stay. This is to go with our other business which keeps us very busy, our two beautiful holiday homes nearby, which have extensive gardens and a field to maintain.)

    We are also renovating our 16th Century farmhouse in the beautiful and very rural Welsh countryside and have completed a lovely bed/sitting room for a Workawayer to come and stay in.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Having enjoyed being a Workaway in Scotland, I hope to pass on this fabulous way of gaining and sharing experiences, making friends whilst enjoying our little piece of heaven!

    Help

    Ideally, we need a versatile Workawayer who will be able to help with various tasks such as feeding livestock, walking dogs, helping to maintain the farm, gardening and perhaps some decorating!

    No real experience is needed, but a love of caring for animals and countryside pursuits is essential.

    We are rural so if you have transport it might make for a better experience, but if you enjoy walking or biking, its a fabulous place to be.

    If you would like to come and stay with and work alongside us for a month or more please send us your details.

    What else ...

    The area we live in is popular with walkers, mountain bikers and those looking for peace and tranquillity, yet we are only 6 miles from Montgomery and 30 miles from Shrewsbury. The local train station is Welshpool which is 12 miles away and we just over an hour and a half away from Birmingham.
