    We only invite those who are trustworthy, reliable, willing to get stuck in and positive in everything they do - life is too short to be miserable. Saying that, we are happy to encourage those looking to improve their take on the world and those who may need a little encouragement in coming out of themselves. When contacting us please give as many details about yourself as you can along with any relevant experience you have had. It will be useful to know what you would like to achieve during your visit and why you would like to come and stay with us specifically.

    We love to meet people from round the world, share cultural experiences. We enjoy cooking and can cook different cuisines. We encourage you to cook if you would like to share your countries dishes. We have horses all with their characters. We can help you gain experience with horse care and English hormanship. The dogs and cat love having workaways fir company, going for walks and cuddles.

    English language experience we like to help you learn and improve your verbal skills. Also we like to offer English and Yorkshire immersive experiences. We are country orientated people. We like culture, art, theatre and cinema.

    We like outdoor in the countryside, going for walks on the beach with dogs, walking in the Yorkshire Dales and Yorkshire Moors. There is so much to explore in Yorkshire, we can make recommendations where to visit and maybe show you some tourism experiences.

    Because you are going to live in our house as part of the family, we work hard to get to know you, to give you chance to get to know us and to get a feel for whether we think we would be a good fit for each other before you come and live with us. For that reason, when you apply we will send you a short video explaining more about what to expect and we will ask for a short video from you to explain your motivation to come to stay with us, what you think you have to offer and what you hope to gain from being in our home. We aren't interested in your technical ability to produce a video, we are interested in your resourcefulness. We also like to chat via Whatsapp for a bit to get to know you, but we won't take long to do this so that we can all make a speedy decision.

    Thank you for your understanding in these exceptional times!

    Puppy care help with raising 4 labrador puppies until they go to new homes in July. You will need to look after, feed and clean the kennel when I’m working away from home.


    I have 2 horses. Two are stabled at home. I train and compete In eventing, dressage, showjumping and cross country. One horse will go into training for eventing next year and it will be exciting as we bredhim. If you would like to learn about caring for horses we can teach you. Riding maybe available subject to experience and you must have insurance. We have two dogs who love company and going for walks.

    I can offer a longer stay as i can teach you the animal care and then you can be independent with you day. This gives you time to go and explore beautiful Yorkshire and travel.

    I provide a bicycle and the bus to York is regular. The village is quiet. This is a place to come and enjoy the countryside, live in a nice environment and enjoy your own space.
