    We already have au pairs which we love and have kept in touch with all of them (including holidays with them after they leave). They love the relaxed atmosphere here and the lively town for its night life.

    Help

    My husband works away most of the time so I would welcome some help catching up with garden chores. Making a bonfire, helping me have a clear up and take heavy things to the tip. Hedge trimming, clearing moss off the drive etc. nothing that requires farming help or experience but a good healthy attitude to being outside and getting mucky is essential. If there was a couple there could be some indoor tasks too with some cleaning/de cluttering.

    Accommodation

    We have a lovely holiday cottage on the Farm, which is currently available to use as we don’t have many bookings in the winter time. You would be self contained and could either eat in the cottage or with the family.
