We have been living and working here for the last 17 years. The property is set in 23 acres (9.25 hectares) and is made up of a hunting lodge, farmhouse and a rundown Porcherie. Jennifer is a catering manager in hospitality for a motor sport team, Malcolm is a working musician. Malcolm also works as a professional antique stove restorer, so there are always interesting architectural antiques about the place. We are both in our 50s. Jennie has a wide repertoire in the kitchen and is quite happy to teach those that are willing. She can teach the following cuisines: Indian; French; Cordon Bleu and good old fashioned English country cooking. Jennie is also an excellent vegetarian cook.

We have three adorable donkeys, three miniature black sheep, a flock of interesting breed chickens, a pond full of Indian runner ducks and a Toulouse goose. We also have four cats one of which is a pedigree Maine Coon. We have a productive veggie plot which helps to feed us throughout the year. We look upon our five acre landscaping project as a working canvas, so anyone interested in bringing fresh ideas would be most welcome.

There are always ongoing projects that we need help with. Duties will include: gardening on the veggie plot; general gardening; hedging; wood chopping. Looking after the various animals, building work under supervision. We have a tractor, professional mower, a digger and a dumper all of which get constant use throughout the summer months!
We are working hard to finish the accommodation for April which will consist of 2 bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Were hoping for a maximum of four people at the peak period in the summer
