Beautiful historic house on edge of large picturesque village, with all amenities. We offer you your own self catering 'flat' so this IDEALLY SUITS A COUPLE or friends (but single Helpexers have been happy here too!) and we favour carpenter/decorator/garden skilled folk and can pay beyond Helpex rates for skilled work. 15th-18th century property with large garden in rural Suffolk (1.5 hours north of London) Need to be self-reliant and self-catering in annex of main family house; some skilled work, (carpentry, general building) some less skilled (painting and gardening). Kids, dog, cats and chickens - there's lots to do! The property is on the edge of a historic, picturesque tiny market town with great facilities and some arts/music/pub life - and easy rail connection to London (via Diss 5 minutes away, London 1.3 hours by train) WE ARE IN SUFFOLK NOT LONDON! MAP WON'T ACCEPT CHANGE!! with open countryside beyond to be explored by bikes we have here. EXTRA paid work on offer for skills (carpentry and decorating) by negotiation on top of food allowance (80 per person per week or 100 if on own) this is in lieu of 'homestay' as the accommodation is semi-detached with kitchenette on site (right hand side of picture below) with 2 person twin bedroom, kitchenette (microwave, sink and slow cooker etc) and bathroom of your own. Have had several very happy experiences recently with builder/gardener couples:pals or couples are best in that we are not able to 'look after' you or feed you or expose you to a lot of English conversation, although lessons are available locally if that is what you are looking for!
