  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    One small indoor single bedroom, and 2-berth caravan. Independent kitchen if required. Shower facilities etc. Would suit one or two gay-friendly people. Water supply is an issue after two drought winters and has to be bought in. So location not suitable for anyone who is unable to adapt to using sparingly.
    Our home is pretty simple, with basic facilities. It is not a fancy villa.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Good walking terrain for the sturdy.
    Patio and small plunge pool for warm weather leisure.
    Time with the horses if interested, outside work hours. They live 2kms from home.
    Minimum and maximum of two workawayers at a time as there is little in the way of social life locally, and you would need eachother for company.
