I am lucky to live in a beautiful spot, deep in the countryside in the southern part of Snowdonia National Park. This is a great place to come if you like nature, mountains, walking, cycling (and rain).

Help around the house
So many ways! Workaway has given me a wealth of new experiences and perspectives and some real friends. I am always keen to host people of different cultural backgounds to my own. In fact, I am less inclined to host people from the UK than those from further afield.
I'm looking for help to stop my garden and land into wilderness - so expect there will lots of cutting and clearing. I've generally got some project on the go involving construction so that's also a possibility. There's lots of scope for keen gardeners, beekeepers, foresters, mycologists. If anyone likes doing housework (I don't!), there's always plenty of that. Cooking too - Always interesting to try out new recipes.
I enjoy learning languages and have a fairly good grasp of French and Spanish and so it would be good to have a chance to practice these or others. I am also very happy to help you with English and Welsh.
I've really enjoyed my experiences with Workaway both as a host and a guest.
The odd person hasn't shown up. Unfortunately this seems to happen too often with Workaway. I know plans will change when you travel but it is much nicer to let your prospective host know what is going on than to treat them as they no longer exist.
This is not a commercial farm.

You will have your own room in my house
This is a quiet place. The nearest (small) town, Dolgellau, is a couple of miles away. I pretty much live alone and being self-employed there may be times when you will have to work alone. There's no television and the internet is fairly slow.
