We are looking for help to complete the renovations on our fantastic house and gardens overlooking the Exe estuary, formerly the village school our house has been neglected and abused over the years. Our wish is to restore it to its former glory whilst modernising and making it fit for twenty first century life.
It does not matter what skills you bring, we can teach you most things so you can learn to paint, garden and basic construction skills depending on what project we are doing at the time of your stay.
We have 3 dogs who need a lot of exercise so sometimes just walking them is a great help.
We have been hosting for 8 years at our previous house so know that we can ensure you get the best from your experience, we are good cooks, relaxed and easy going, there are often more people in our home either friends and family visiting or craftspeople working on the more complex parts of the renovations.
We are looking for couples to stay for between 2-4 weeks as we know this works best for us (and usually you!) however we will seriously consider anyone who has construction skills who would like to help.
We enjoy working out and swim, cycle or run everyday and practice yoga as often as we can. Our diet is mainly plant based in the week and we enjoy cooking a wide variety of food.
We need help from after 23rd August
please get in touch if you meet our criteria.
