  • Help


    We require help every morning for 2-3 hours to tidy and clean around the property and help organise a few events in the evenings, eg BBQ, quiz night and games night. A drivers licence is handy but not essential. We will provide you with wifi, bikes, laundry. We ask for a 2-3 week minimum stay with the option to stay longer if needed. Gardening and cleaning is unpaid however if you can stay for at least 5 months and have receptionist skills we'd be interested in reading your resume. All reception work is paid and we would need to meet you in person before offering a job.
