    Description

    Hi!

    We’re a very laid back couple in our late twenties/early thirties with two kids (2year old and a newborn baby) We live in a country house with cats (and newborn kittens) dogs/lots of chickens + ducks (200/300). We are not vegan or veggie but love eating/growing our own stuff (including game). We really love food, you won’t go hungry here!
    We rent both this house and another house (a 10 minute drive away in a beach town) out at weekends and for holidays.

    We have lots of experience with helpers from all over the world :)

    We normally need help with any of the following - basic maintenance/painting/wood work etc, gardening (veggie patch/wood cutting etc), cooking, the animals, cleaning etc depending on each helpers skill set.
    We often have small projects doing up bits of the houses/furniture.

    In exchange for your time, we provide 3 meals a day and accommodation in our 2 bed mobile home in the middle of nature on our private fishing lake, a 5 minute walk from the house. You are more than welcome to swim or fish here!
