We live on a lovely farm about 25 miles north of London, our family consists of 3 of us at home now, the older children live in London.
My son age 16 is a very keen Carp Fisherman and does fishing competitions he loves to fish and enjoys overnight camping by the lakes.
The Farm has pet animals, 4 horses (including 2 top show horses), 2 big dogs, 2 alpacas, rheas, Meerkats, owls, emus,pig, many hens, peacocks, Rhea's, cats, turkeys and ducks and geese. We breed emus as a hobby.

We provide you with full board in exchange for 5/6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Plus we have wifi.
Happy to have single or couples or two friends
Horses are competition horses, you are welcome to ride well schooled horses but MUST have riding knowledge. Horse riding is optional.
We are looking for someone to help with the gardening, housework in the farmhouse and also help with the feeding and caring for our animals, outdoor work such as strimming weeds, fence painting etc.,
We have completed renovating one of our barns into a bed and breakfast place so help with guests and cleaning the b & b may be needed.
We usually have two Helpx on our farm.
We are a friendly easy going family who are looking for that type of person/people. Must enjoy working outdoor life and love animals. Chance to ride top quality horses and groom at horse shows or visit London to view the sites! Obviously caring for animals is not just about cuddling and feeding them. Dogs need a bath, emus love a shower, birds and stables all need cleaning and sweeping. Our home is a 600 year old farmhouse sitting on its own land, cleaning and tidying / laundry is all part of the Helpx job here.
For our horses, we have a round pen, stables, a Menage and plenty of lovely riding. I am a horse fanatic!
Please make sure you have the relevant visa for volunteering work in Uk.
We look forward to hearing from you and will reply to all enquiries.
