  • Description


    We are looking for a couple of workawayers to come for about two weeks in early January or February

    We are looking for a lot of help in the garden, clearing up old outbuildings and some decorating. One of the pair needs to be strong and preferably knowledgeable about gardening and experienced in general maintenance but this is not essential.
    Help us and stay in a lovely cottage in Frogmore, Devon. We (just two of us) are a very active retired couple who live in Devon, deep in the South West of England. There are always people calling in and village life is never dull. Your cottage will be adjacent to ours so you will have independence and privacy if you want it.
    Both properties overlook the creek and there is a Kayak available for you to use on fine days and when the tide is in. The nearest holiday town is Salcombe, at the end of the creek,
    We are near to Kingsbridge and Dartmouth with a bus that runs between the two towns. It is lovely walking country.
    Workawayers can be a couple or individuals.
