We live on a (small) smallholding in a rural location in North Wales, on the edge of Snowdonia. The setting is delightful and secluded, yet the nearest town is only 4 miles down the road, while the North Wales coast and mainline train station are 18 miles away. Walking, climbing & cycling opportunities, as well the many attractions of Snowdonia & the Coast are only a short drive away.

Our animals (dogs, cats, chickens, bees, rare-breed sheep & pigs, donkeys) rule the place and our lives, so this is for animal lovers only!
Our land is mainly pasture in two fields adjacent to the house, with a large garden with orchard & veg beds. There is also a working music studio on site which my partner runs.

We are currently have availability to host from mid June to end of July, potentially into August. (it could be someone staying for the entire period, or several shorter stays).

We are are quite new to smallholding life so we are specifically looking for people who already have relevant skills to share, as we have a lot to learn. Work can be arranged flexibly around a mutually agreed schedule. You should be able and confident to work on your own without much supervision. There are always smaller & bigger jobs to be done:
Animal care
Fencing repairs
Building maintenance
Haymaking (depending on season/weather)
Carpentry & wood working projects
Ground works (securing/repairing paths, paving, building steps on slopes, etc)

Accommodation in your own room in our house (double bed, suitable for single person or a couple). Shared meals (breakfast & dinner - lunch is 'help yourself'). Wifi available throughout the house.
Our house is quite small so a mutual sensibility for allowing everyone their own space is crucial for a harmonious experience for everyone.

Due to the location own transport an advantage but not crucial; we are happy to pick up from the local mainline train station.
