  • Description


    We are a young fun loving couple who have moved from London to Devon to start an adventure. We have an awesome dog Louis Ridgeback X who is full of energy.

    We have established a B&B and are now in the process of creating a more ecologically sustainable household, and would love some likeminded people to share in ideas, projects and the such. We are currently working on our food garden which was quite good last year but we now need to move it & rebuild vegetable patches etc.

    We are relaxed and would prefer that our workawayers carry the same flexible attitude.

    We are looking for workaways who can give a helping hand in gardening (weeding!!), rebuild fences, general garden maintenance etc .

    We are relaxed, eat when you get up etc there are plenty of farm shops nearby so all the food is super fresh, we like to all eat together. We live downstairs in our house as the top 2 floors are our business. Workaway accommodation is our tiny bunk room, we share a bathroom, there are 2 TV rooms so you can have timeout & a big communal kitchen. Julie who was once a workaway with us now lives with us full-time as our B&B manager she is very much part of the family.

    This workaway opportunity would be best for either a single person who likes to socialise with us or a couple of friends.

    We are near Lyme Regis, River Cottage HQ, Golden Cap & Trill Farm to give a small snippet of our area.

    We look forward to welcoming you into our home but ask that if you are travelling from outside of the EU that you provide us with the relevant & up to date information stating your eligibility to work within the UK.

    We always suggest 2 weeks to start with to see that we all get on & if we all agree maybe an extended stay.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have unlimited internet so no problems there. We are based in Axminster home to River Cottage, 5 minutes from Lyme Regis beach & a bus ride from two bustling market towns Bridport & Honiton. If you wanted a weekend in London it is under 3hrs by direct train from the local station. It is a very picturesque area with plenty of beautiful walks...England doesn't get much more beautiful!
    We are relaxed but would expect you to be enthusiastic about helping us reach our goals & stick to the 5hrs per day. Please do apply even if it is one particular element that you are more interested in doing. You must love dogs!! If you are looking for the 'Good Life' and to experience the hub of the English Countryside living this is for you!
