  • Description


    Continuing to manage and refurbish a unique property that was once the vegetable garden for Rosneath Castle (now demolished). The garden has been very carefully designed and comprises 1.5 acres of formal garden, a half acre of organic vegetable garden and five acres of woodland. I am a single person in my fifties working full time ...heading towards retirement when I can spend most of our time outdoors.
    In the meantime, I would love you to come and help me (five hours per day, 5 days per week or 25 hours per individual in total per week spread out to suit your itinerary) and in return I will provide ensuite accommodation and all meals.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I am a spirited, young at heart, entrepreneurial woman who has worked very hard all of my life and continue to manage the property and garden and maintain it in as eco friendly a way as possible. I have very ambitious plans for the property and am happy to share experiences of hatching plans and working hard to realize a dream. There is lots of refurbishment work to do inside the main house too and I am looking to share experiences and learn some new tricks from helpers.
