  • Description


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

    We are looking for a lot of help in the garden, clearing up old outbuildings and some decorating. Also may need help sorting out and labelling linen and some spring cleaning. One of the pair needs to be strong and preferably knowledgeable about gardening and experienced in general maintenance.
    Help us and stay in a lovely cottage in Frogmore, Devon. We (just two of us) are a very active recently retired couple who live in Devon, deep in the South West of England. A very lively dog shares our lives and there are always people calling in. Your cottage will be adjacent to ours so you will have independence and privacy.
    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.
    Really want people January/February.

    We are looking for two people to help clear out several out buildings including a Boat House on the Creek nearby. This will involve lots of lifting and moving of sometimes quite heavy things. We would also like some help tidying the garden, hedge and tree trimming. Also help in the house, sorting linen and spring cleaning.
