    Description

    Hi there,

    Myself, my three lovely dogs, and my beautiful farm and farmhouse are looking for some day to day help. We live deep in the English countryside on a beautiful small arable farm in Northamptonshire, the Midlands; Not so far from a village called West Haddon, which has 2 pubs, a shop, 2 beauty salons and several buses a day to the surrounding towns. We are a five minute drive from Long Buckby train station which takes you straight to Central London in 50minutes, straight to Birmingham in 20 minutes and has great routes north or south. There are many beautiful walks to lovely traditional pubs in every direction and the dogs always love to join in.

    We have a large garden with an apple, pear and plum orchard, a vegetable garden and a small woodland. There are also numerous barns on the farm, a small campsite and a caravan storage business.

    I currently live with my son Murray, who has a bronze casting foundry in one of the barns that keeps him busy. I also live with three cuddly small dogs. At the moment there is a lovely girl from Spain and a tenant who is at work most of the time.

    I suffer from MS, and so sadly I struggle to walk, cook and clean. At the moment I can still drive, and I have a couple of disability buggies which allow me to walk the dogs around the farm and head off out and socialise.

    So i am therefor looking for a friendly kind companion to help with my everyday life. Someone who can cook me dinner/lunch, which sadly must be vegetarian food for my MS so I would like somebody who really enjoys cooking delicious meals. Clear up after meals. Help me with a weekly food shop. Help with minimal farm maintenance depending on your skills. Help in the garden. Walk and feed the doggies when i am not around. And genuinely keep me company :)

    You will have a lovely light room to yourself, seen in the pictures, with a joining bathroom. Food will be included. We are a very sociable family and so always have visitors and love to go out for dinner with friends. I also go swimming and to yoga every week, so you can either join in or go off and do your own thing.

    I am looking for someone who can commit to at least two months, which will fly by in this beautiful part of the world. I am very flexible to days and hours worked. I am open to couples however I am worried there will not be enough work for two.

    Please have a look through my pictures and feel free to ask any questions. It is a lovely chilled out relaxing place to stay and I look forward to sharing it with you.

    Hope to hear from you very soon and safe travels,

    Fiona
