    Two dogs love going for walks as we sometimes need dog are if we are busy.

    Help with cooking and some daily help in house would be very helpful.Garden and general tidy around house and gardens.
    We would like to offer a longer stay as we 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.

    We work full time so you will be alone in the day with the animals. We 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.
