Hi, I need some help. I am looking for a person or preferably a couple to help that are able to painting and general tidying up. Work is 20 hours a week for accommodation with fully equipped kitchen. Food is not included. You can either work 4 hours a day for five days, or the 20 hours over 3 days and have the rest of the week to travel.

This is a B&B on 3 acres at Seymour. It is currently closed. The lodge faces the Seymour Racecourse and backs onto the Seymour Golf Course. It is 1.5km to a local bus stop and 3.5km to the train station (in the centre of town). The regular train service takes about 1hr 20mins to get to Melbourne. I drive past the train station most days. Services also go north to Albury and Sydney as well as to Nagambie and Shepparton. A bus service goes to Yea and Eilden. The spectacular Goulburn River Valley Rail trail that goes to Mansfield, is close by.
If you have a car, Seymour is centrally located to travel to most parts of Victoria and only 96km to Melbourne.

The animal population here currently consists of 4 thoroughbred racehorses (3 retired), 1 companion pony, 1 dog and 3 barn cats. Wildlife is abundant with Kangaroos, ducks, birds and the occasional koala. There are yabbies in the dam.

I have one bicycle available to use and free internet access.
For the right energetic and skilled person/people, staying here will be a great way to either take a break from traveling or use the Lodge as a base to see Victoria.

Your accommodation is separate to mine, so you will not have the in house family experience. I lead a very busy life, that is why I need help, so I will not be able to entertain you. However, I will do everything possible to make your stay here enjoyable and enable you to see the area.
