My husband, sister and i have spent the last two years restoring three 18th century barns here in an AONB ( area of outstanding natural beauty) in the Cotswolds. We now need some help with gardening, landscaping and diy on our field and in our private garden. We also always have domestic chores to be done. We have three very friendly dogs one of which is always up for a country ramble if you are. We are interested in a couple who can drive if possible and are happy to cook for themselves although we will share some dinners together or take you as our guests to our fav cafes. We will provide a food budget and hope you will work for around 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. Although we run a business from home and our workawayers need to be aware of this and keep their cottage clean and tidy and be aminable to storing their belongings away if need be, we will only ask you to work in areas not connected to our business.
We love to work with you when time allows and you will find us very chatty and sociable. We are also happy to drive you to nearby cultural places of interest.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We are friendly and always keen to meet people from different cultures. We are foodies and love to hear about and taste new recipes. You will hopefully sample our cooking and we will bring you local food to try! As a family of journalists we are interested in the wider world and particularly current affairs, the arts and history and will enjoy chatting to you about your home and culture.
We always need gardening and domestic maintenance. Also handyman/diy skills an asset.

We are in a small Cotswold hamlet in an area of outstanding natural beauty and only 5 mins walk from a good, local pub. The towns of Stow on the Wold and Moreton in the Marsh are only 5 mins by car but easily reached on foot. There is a station at Moreton with direct trains to London which is 1 hour and 40 mins away and Oxford (. 30 mins). There are many excellent country pubs nearby and many footpaths offering wonderful walks. The last battle of the civil war was fought nearby and the area is steeped in British history.
