We live about ten minutes from Cheviot and enjoy a lovely setting in the country, surrounded by farmland. There's a big garden, and the house is very comfortable, with good wifi too.

There is a general mix of work available. We have recently had a chimney taken out of the house and the bricks need to be cleaned, sorted and stacked. We are also having some repairs done to the house so if you enjoy building, you could assist the builders.

There is a bit of gardening too, especially in the vegetable garden. There's loads of other general assistance needed around the place so I am sure we could find a job you would like!

Ideally we would like someone with some horse riding experience to give the horses a bit of exercise. While they are quiet, they are not for beginners. The donkeys enjoy going out for a walk on the lead too.

We live about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a great surfing spot). We've got 2 lovely house dogs, 1 retired sheep dog, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 kunekune pigs, pet sheep (5) and 4 cats.

I work from home, and Bryan runs Harris Meats, which is located on next door. If you don't eat/like meat, then you may not like our place. If you do, then you will be amazed at how good the meat here is, and you will know exactly where it came from!

There's lots of sporting activities around here, Bryan cycles and watches a lot of rugby. There's some great walks, and if you are keen on surfing or fishing, the river and sea are nearby. There are also some great tramping options.

We are about 1hour 20 mins from Chch.
