  • Description


    I am a single lady running a country house by the sea in Snowdonia, North Wales.
    Workaway help is welcome mainly in restoring neglected areas of the wooded grounds in an historic garden.

    The house is just outside the small coastal resort of Barmouth so all the attractions of the seaside are just a ten minute walk away, but the house is set in its own grounds so the atmosphere is very peaceful and private. It is a very special place and I would be delighted to welcome a volunteer or two to come and discover its magic.

    I look forward to having you stay.

    North Wales is a beautiful part of Great Britain, it's landscape and culture unique.
    Barmouth has a railway station so all the coast is available to explore by train, foot or bike.

    This is a wonderful place to get to know, anyone with an interest in architecture will be delighted to have the chance to stay here and also explore the many superb historic castles and houses in the area.
