    We are looking for someone who is hardworking who wants to work. We need someone with experience with painting, construction, diy jobs etc

    The work is 4/5 days a week, you’ll be very well fed and have your own room. You should be able to borrow the car and venture out on your days off as there is lots too see as we live by the coast, I am often out and about so you are very welcome to join me!

    I live on a farm in a beautiful part of the UK. I am very well traveled and cook a wide variety of different foods and have plenty of stories to tell. I am happy to help teach you different meals and I’m also happy to help you with your English.
    My family members work away but we are very close. The farm is 4 miles from the nearest town. I currently look after 5 retired ex racehorses and 3 others. I also have 3 dogs and 2 cats. I'm a very hard worker, travelling, reading and cooking are just some of the things I enjoy.
