  • Help

    Help

    Help within our small luxury guesthouse and luxury camping, we only have a samll volume of beds to turn over but with a high attention to detail. Duties include; cleaning rooms, changing beds, dusting, hoovering. Also some pottering about the garden. Helping me with shopping, prepping food etc. We have a cat, dog, hens and 4 connemara ponies, so an interest in animals would be helpful but not essential.
