We have a large country house overlooking the Culm valley. There is a woodland and herbaceous border garden, lawns, orchards and a walled kitchen garden where we practice a no-dig, organic system with raised beds, poly-tunnel and greenhouse. We grow and forage as much of our own food as possible including vegetables, fruit, herbs, eggs, and poultry. We are keen sour-dough bakers and also make preserves, wines and herbal medicines.

We do speak English but we are not an English language school. You need to know that much of the day you will be working on your own, which is why we encourage couples but individuals are also welcome according to availability. We welcome helpers for a minimum of one week and maximum two week stay. you must have your own insurance.

The work includes all sorts of gardening tasks like planting, weeding, harvesting, also chopping and stacking wood, clearing brambles and scrub, repairing walls, outbuildings and fences.

There are also indoor jobs such as antique restoration, diy, painting and decorating.

Accommodation is in a private double room looking out over the garden with space for a single bed as well if needed. There’s also space in the garden for camping.
