Lifestyle farm with mountain views in Marlborough, New Zealand



 Hospedagem min. solicitada: mínimo 1 semana



  • Descrição


    The little farm is located half an hour out of Blenheim. A few cows, sheep, chickens, ducks, cats and horses. It suits keen experienced horse riders mainly but those looking for a quiet farm stay are also welcome.

    Jobs include basic cleaning, painting, farm jobs, gardening, pruning, watering plants, picking up branches, feeding animals. You don't need experience in any of these things, a positive attitude is most valued.

    NOTE: horse riding is not considered work. Riding is a privilege. We do expect guests to do their hours, and clean up after themselves. If you can't get up in the morning, this place is not for you. You must be respectful and tidy.

    Comfortable accommodation mostly self contained but sharing shower and kitchen (open to sharing meals, or not).

    I like to take workaway guests to explore the area when I can, on foot, or on horses (for experienced horse riders). Interested people may advance their horsemanship skills.

    I'm extensively travelled, lived nine years in the Middle East as well as in other areas of the world. I run my own business separate from the farm, and previously worked as a teacher.

    I'm open to any suggestions about how your background could be a good fit here. Suit those who like the quiet life. No public transport. I can pick up from Blenheim on arrival and take to town when I go.

    Strictly no smokers due to health as well as fire risk in the area. There is WiFi but can be slow. Mobile phone signal is ok. Vegetarian/vegan welcome if you are willing to prepare some of your own food etc. We eat lots of home grown veges as well as home grown meat.

    Building projects if you're able.
    Other projects to suit your skills. Tell me what you can do.
