Hi there, we need help from the beginning of October 2022 onwards and are looking for couples or two friends to help us
Our Holistic Retreat is set within the southern half of the beautiful lake district, 33 acres of woodland pasture with a small flock of Shetland Sheep. horses and a few chickens. We have 3 cats who live with us in the house, the cats are not allowed upstairs in the bedrooms.
Come and join our friendly family, in our 18th century farmhouse, join in with our family life, walking the fells and mountains, playing with the kids in the woods, go wild swimming in the great lakes with Philip, practice your yoga in our purpose made yoga studios. We have a Canadian Canoe and mountain bikes you can use whilst you are here to explore this beautiful part of England.
In return we have regular tasks around the Retreat and the home that need doing throughout the year, be it helping with the cleaning, playing with the kids when they are back from school, splitting logs for our Biomass Boiler or helping to renovate the large vegetable garden here. We need diligent honest people looking to join in with all the help required around the Retreat.
After hosting many helpers now over a few years we have come to prefer our helpers to stay one month at least and up to three months in total, we have noticed that thus way, both the helpers and our family get so much more out of the experience. We would prefer a couple for the summer and autumn months but please don't let that put you off if you are a single traveler or if you can only commit to a shorter time.
