Are you available for at least 4 weeks? Do you have experience with horses/ponies? Housework? Gardening?
We are a Riding holiday centre with 14 ponies and other animals (goats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs - plus a few exotics geckos, stick insects, salamanders etc)
We are in the Lincolnshire Fens - flat fertile farmland on the East Coast of England. It is a very rural area, about 6 miles to the nearest town, but there is a station 2 miles away and a demand responsive bus which comes past the farm (but not often!).
I am in a wheelchair (paraplegic) and struggle along with 2 full time girls so any help around the farm with garden, children, ponies or other animals would be great for us. You would be welcome any time of the year.
In return for your work we can offer you a nice room in the farmhouse and home cooked food plus some horse riding. You need to be versatile and do a bit of everything, as no day is ever the same here! Someimes the work outside mucking out can by physically hard.
We are vegetarian but I dont mind cooking meat for someone else, as I do for holiday visitors anyway.
Lincolnshire is great, we have lovely sunsets, where the sky meets the ground as we are so flat. We are the drier side of England, which is a bonus!!! and although we are in a tiny hamlet/village we are only about 15mins by car from Skegness, which is a holiday town with beaches, shops, amusements, fair and all the usual fish and chip shops, candy floss etc of a traditional seaside resort. Come and work hard but also have some fun!
