    Description

    We are a family of 5 looking to host like minded people who enjoy the outdoors, growing fruit and veg, gardening, looking after animals (chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, pigs) and just getting stuck in with log cutting gardening and hands being on :)

    We live in 13 acres in the Derbyshire countryside near lots of lovely towns and villages. We have a walled garden, large greenhouse and have the dream of being ‘self sufficient’. We have an out door natural swimming pool you would be free to use.

    We have a 5 year old, 4 year old and 2 year old so all the family get involved.

    We have a private annex for you to stay in with full kitchen lounge area, upstairs bedroom, 2 bathrooms, electric shower, TV, wifi, Netflix and under floor heating (or you can camp in our cabin if you prefer).

    We would be looking for a couple who have their own car/transport, we live near a lot of things, but a car would make life a lot easier for you. We would provide you with £50 cash a week for a food allowance to get your own supplies, and would invite you to come and eat with the family when we do family meals at the weekends.

    We are an active, friendly family that love the outdoors and having adventures. We would be looking for a couple that can get stuck in to all the little jobs around the small holding, but at the same time be self sufficient and enjoy their own time.
