Accommodation and English language training if required in our lowly but characterful three hundred year old fen edge cottage. Its scruffy and often a bit dirty as I'm decluttering days. But summer is still here and its beautiful if you like animals and countryside and medieval cities and scruffy old cottages.

Its exactly halfway along the road from Cambridge to Newmarket. 7 miles from each centre. That takes about 15 mins in flowing traffic and considerably more in rush hour.

There is a bus into town(s) from the corner and there is also the park and ride service which is cheaper and quicker than the regular bus which is nearby so we can always run you to or from there in our car.

We are a couple in our mid sixties. I'm a semi-retired freelance English language teacher, teacher trainer and ex-author of resource books for teachers. I'm thinking of moving to Spain with the horses and Liam.

Liam was a contract manager in construction and is now retired. He is Irish and is full of warmth and stories and quick wit.

Help urgently needed with daily poopicking for 30-60 mins
Work at Home in the cottage would include maintenance jobs such as putting guttering up, helping us declutter and redecorate a bit 2-3 hours a day
The rest of the time is yours to do with as you choose. read, ride, draw, walk, sight-see, mooch around the house whatever...

Horse lovers would be encouraged to spend time with the horses. They all friendly and safe to be around and it may possible for you to ride if you'd like to once you've got to know the horses better. Ive got two seniors, one gelding cob called Gunna and an Arab mare called Willow.

They are used to being treated gently, quietly and with respect. No dominance methods of training are used and horses are given choices and have as much liberty as possible. They are my friends and so I would expect you to do the same.

I'm trying to be very clear here because sometimes I'm not. Reading back it doesn't sound like me. I'm scatty and messy, generally cheerful and tolerant and easy going. Certainly not, however, the hostess with the mostess but you will enjoy it here if you you just muck in and help yourself if meals are not looking imminent.

Smokers welcome but only downstairs where the open fireplace clears smoke away. Non smokers will not have smoke imposed on them.

Cooking enthusiasts particularly welcome because I'm not! My partner is not bad though so don't panic!

hope to hear from someone soon, really need some help.
