    Description

    Hi we live in North Devon, just near Lynton and Lynmouth. It is a beautiful area of the English coastline, often called Little Switzerland due to the amazing scenery, woodland walks, waterfalls and rugged coast line. It is in a National Park, Exmoor, so it is an unspoilt part of the country. There are numerous country walks to go on and of course part of the South West coast path. Lynton and Lynmouth are picturesque and are joined by a cliff railway to get up and down the cliff between them. We have beaches, cream teas in abundance and even our own small cinema! We have some nice English pubs locally and most people in the area are friendly and welcoming to visitors.

    Gardening, please! clearing areas of weeds and putting down meadow flower seeds. Painting fencing.

    I am a mental health worker for the NHS and also do private psychotherapy. In my spare time I make fused glass which I sell locally. My partner, manages a local tourist shop. We have a two young dalmatian dogs, both bitches. I have to say they are nervous and do take a bit of time to get used to people so we will need someone who is used to dogs. They are lovely once they get used to someone!

    We would like to get to know people from other countries and cultures, for a few years I had Russian and Spanish students staying with me and I found it a rewarding experience. I also had a Spanish lodger for about a year. We are part of the French Twinning society here and enjoy meeting our French friends and learning about their culture and would like to extend this to other people.

    We would appreciate some help with sorting out the garden. We have had 2 Workawayers previously, separately, both a few years ago now. They were both lovely people and we tried to make their stay with us enjoyable.

    We have an upstairs bedroom available with a double bed in it. So we would be happy to have either a single person or a couple. We have an upstairs bathroom with a bath and toilet and a downstairs shower room with shower and toilet. Obviously guests would be welcome to use both.

    If 2 friends wanted to come, we have a nice caravan in the garden and 1 person could stay in there.

    We would try to make your stay in England enjoyable and interesting.


    It is essential that people are used to dogs as unfortunately our dogs are quite nervous.

    It’s a lovely part of England, although a bit quiet, it is excellent walking country. It would be a good opportunity to improve English Language skills for people who wish to do this and an opportunity to live in a beautiful area of the country for a couple of weeks.

    Lynton and Lynmouth have several pubs and are within easy walking distance.

    There are buses into the town of Barnstaple, which is 20 miles away.
    We will do our best to make sure that guests have a good experience.

    We have a large garden that is bordered by the river. It needs the weeds really cutting back in some areas and hopefully meadow seed sowing, maybe some digging, a lot of tree branches cut back, weeds covered over with cardboard and soil so that they die off! Tying up Roses.

    Also putting in a few fence posts and repainting fencing.


    We would really appreciate having some Workaways people or person to come and help us with this please.

    The main task is sorting out the garden as much as possible.
    Computer help is always welcome!

    As I have said above it is fantastic walking country, it is set in unspoilt countryside, it is 20 miles from Barnstaple, the main town, and from there it is easy to get a train to Exeter. Exeter is a small cathedral city. We have some very pretty coastal villages around. Transport can be difficult here, and to get further afield from here on public transport may be somewhat challenging. There are buses that run in the daytime until about 7pm and when and where we can we will give lifts.


    We look forward to meeting you!
