  • Description


    I am a woman that loves Animals and I often assist in rehoming dogs, so sometimes there are many dogs requiring Walks and care. My own two dogs and two cats never say no to attention either !
    The house is an old schoolhouse under renovation, situated in a lovely rural setting with a dairy farm and Church next door. Beautiful Forest walks and the occasional swims in the lake not too far away. Lots of apples and berries to pick in season which I require help with to make juice and jams etc, also mushroom picking.
    I love a good barbecue in the evening and enjoy hearing about other peoples experiences.
    No children or pets other than my own unfortunately, and absolutely no smokers.
    You should love animals and nature, be willing to help in the house and garden and to help look after the animals. There’s lots to do and the internet connection is very good in the accommodation provided.

Fantastic birdwatching and especially at Hornborgasjön where thousands of cranes congregate each spring to dance, as well as a rich archeological history in the area. Many churches.
