  • Description


    Hi, I live in the best part of the United Kingdom sunny England the lake district. known as the Lakes or Lakeland, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells), and its associations with William Wordsworth and other Lake Poets and also with Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin.

    Things to do and see locally; Explore the mountains, fells, valleys and dales and visit the lakes and tarns of the Lake District & Cumbria. Discover hidden places to visit in the Lake District forests, woods, waterfalls, rivers and caves. There are an abundance of attractions and activities in the Lake District that everyone will love.

    Walk or cycle around the incredible countryside. Canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding are available on Coniston Water and Windermere, or go rock climbing at Kendal’s Lakeland Climbing Centre.

    I am self employed in joinery / building trade, living and working in the lake district. I'm interested in travel and cultural, sailing, walking, ridding bikes, exploring. diy projects, and looking after my Airedale terrier dog. I have just bought a vintage sailing boat that will need restoring, so you can help with is too!

    I'm looking for someone who is enthusiastic, with plenty of energy, ideally a young person having a gap year who I can teach some diy skills to what they would not normally have a opportunity to do, So no experience is required but you must have a interest to learn.

    I'm very keen to have someone who can help me start learning French and tell me story's of there life experience and there way of life.
