I have 6 acres of natural broadleaf woodland in mid-Devon. Im a woodsman and work the woods to produce charcoal and green wood working products: furniture, bowls, spoons etc. I also do oak timber frame building & teach green woodworking. I live as sustainably as possible on the land: I live in a yurt, off-grid (mainly solar), and grow fruit & vegetables in the forest garden & polytunnel. Water is from a well. There is a compost toilet and a wood-heated shower.
The woodland is about a mile from the village of Nomansland, where there is a pub & regular buses to the town of Tiverton (9 miles away). Accommodation is either in a caravan (can sleep 2) or a wooden shack (1 person). Both have wood burners in them. There is no wifi/internet, unless you have a smart phone or ipad; it is not exactly 3G, but the signal is good enough to check emails etc. There is a pub 1 mile away with wifi if you have your own computer. There i a bicycle to be borrowed. It is very rural here so be prepared to make your own entertainment!
I am looking for 1-2 people with woodworking &/or gardening/permaculture skills and experience, to work here for a week at a time. It is not possible for families to come here at present.
If you think youd like to come here, phone me for a chat.
