  • Description


    My family and I have recently moved to a house in East Sussex which we are renovating. It’s a big house with large garden in a rural village. We have almost finished the house inside but the outside is a mess and we need lots of help. We are interested to hear from anyone who is willing to do physical work - mainly in the garden - there is a lot of digging to be done and cutting / stacking logs. We would also be really keen to hear from anyone with any construction/ landscaping / carpentry experience.

    We can offer a lovely room with double bed, your own bathroom and food. We are a family with two children (aged 8 and 10) a dog and cat and live in a friendly village where there’s a pub, lots of beautiful walks and a regular bus to Brighton.

    We can help you with your English if that is what you are looking for. Through the work outside we will be learning together to make a beautiful and productive garden.

    You will have plenty of free time to enjoy the local countryside - there are lots of walks which start right from our property which we can show you. You’ll be able to explore nearby towns such as Brighton and the beautiful, historic town of Lewes, which is only three miles and a short bus journey away.

    We’d love to hear from anyone who doesn’t mind working outside on physical tasks. There’s lots of gardening to be done, including a piece of land which we want to turn into a kitchen garden. Anyone with carpentry, construction or landscaping experience would be really useful to us.

    Happy to have another dog that is likely to get on with our dog that would be great. The garden is not secure though and there are cows in the neighbouring field.
