This is an opportunity to experience working in a woodland and utilising hand tools for both woodworking and woodland management. We are based in the Preseli Hills, the woodland covers 35 hectares with a mix of native ( Ash, Oak, Hazel) and non native species (Larch, Douglas Fir). It contains many interesting features including a stream for bathing on hot afternoons.

The current project involves construction of a timber framed barn - techniques include roundwood timber framing as well as working with sawn timber sourced from on site.
Other day to day tasks include chopping firewood, gardening and woodland management.

We are a family of five with three children aged 3 10 years old and a dog, we enjoy music and occasionally host 'jam nights' when local folk come over with their instruments and we play around the fire. The local village is 3km away with a few small shops and a pub. The stunning coast is about half an hour drive away. We have basic accommodation in a caravan, yurt or tipi.
