We are full now for 2017. March/April and onwards still available 2018.

Hosts...John and Barbara
We have owned our property since 1989. We now spend half the year here. Have much less energy but still need to keep on top of a productive garden and continue renovations. We have catered for vegetarians, celiacs and other needs/preferences. We try to be organic gardeners and be self-sufficient with fruit and veg. We keep ducks for eggs.
Broadband wi-fi is present on site. Bicycles are available.

We aim for self-sufficiency without being extreme. We grow, harvest, and try to conserve any excess.This means bottling and drying produce.
The crops include asparagus, beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, spinach, kiwi,cherries,peaches,apples, pears, apricots,plums, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, red and blackcurrants, seedless grapes, figs and physalis. Assorted trees for log burner. This means : Weeding, Hoeing, Pruning, Harvesting, Mowing, Log splitting, Hedge trimming, etc.
We are renovating a 300 yr old farmhouse.
We would be really pleased if anyone wanted to make a project of getting rid of a stand of bamboo.
Meals or provisions will be provided as will tea, coffee and soft drinks.
We don't expect set hours of work, just pitch in with us, or ask for a project. It usually works out at about 4/5 hours work a day.
We bake our own bread, currently wrestling to master sourdough.
It's quiet and peaceful.
