I am a self-employed horticulturist. I live in a fourteenth century Somerset long thatch. In February I will be starting the renovation of outbuildings to become extra accommodation for the house. This is a sustainable project . I will need someone to help with pointing work using traditional lime mortar, this is not highly skilled, and instruction on use of materials will be given as required.. There will also be decorating, cleaning, carpentry, building and general hand work..

This is an opportunity to stay in an ancient thatched house in an idyllic rural location. I live in a small hamlet surrounded by the landscape of the Somerset levels. It’s relatively isolated here, although the town of Ilminster is only 3 miles away. Bikes available!
I will need help with painting, decorating, carpentry work, general household maintenance, and outside tasks, gardening, logging, etc. Any experience of course welcome but otherwise instruction will be provided. Applicants will need to be able to work unsupervised and by using their own initiative. My hobbies are cycling, walking, music and choir singing..
I am hoping to accommodate two workaways. Each will have their own room with bed. Shared bathroom, shower, and kitchen facilities. I am a keen cook, and will provide home-cooked meals, vegetarian if necessary.. Workaways may have to manage for themselves as I am sometimes away overnight. Provision will be made in this case!
This may suit a couple, or two friends who will appreciate the peace and beauty of a rural retreat.
