  • Description


    The ancient Farmhouse, dating back to the 13th century, is in the heart of Clun village and is run as a small Bed and Breakfast, accommodating people and sometimes their horses. The area is very rural, peaceful and picturesque, great for walking and enjoying the space, a bit of old England. I’m looking for someone to help with the B&B, organic garden, animals, cooking and general maintenance.

    We are looking for someone as soon as possible over one month or more. We need only one person, not a couple. We can support isolation if it helps.
