Program Details

You can be self-sufficient in the summerhouse or share some meals in the house with me. When off-duty you can just relax at the farm or go for walks or bike rides. I can give English lessons for a small fee if wished, as I have done for years!

Activities & Shift

Monday to Friday, work 4 hours a day. You can work longer if you wish! Main work is to look after the new spinney, planted last year for birds and wildlife. Here on the east coast we have the smallest rainfall so watering is important. Also walls always need to be repainted, and in the summer months regular weeding is necessary.


Courtesy, honesty and respect, working diligently on one's own initiative.
