We are retired but active couple, we have 8 acres of ground full of wonders such as horses, chickens, a dog and a cat, out buildings, a wind turbine, gardens and a vegetable plot therefore we would like some people to come and help us out in and around the house and land.
We are sociable pair. we have 4 grown up children who no longer live at home so we have space to host people and we want to share our home and stories with interesting people who like to do the same! We have rooms on Air BnB too, so guests often come and go, as do friends and family. Having Help Xers will be a great practical help but also fun and interesting for us and you too!

We are located between Stirling and St Andrews in the beautiful county of Kinross-shire 40 miles from Edinburgh, in a village called Drum. There are regular buses between Stirling and St Andrews and Kinross which is the nearest town with amenities such as swimming pool, supermarket, bakery, newsagent etc. We do live in the peaceful countryside, Kinross is 5 miles away, staying here is tranquil and slow, with time and space to enjoy nature and your own company.Your own car/transport is needed really.

We would like the Helpexrs to do 4 hours of tasks per day 5 days per week, the days and the hours are flexible and can be discussed. Tasks might include: painting, fencing, ground works, firewood, gardening, animal husbandry, general household tasks. Working with our two tractors and various agricultural equipment to suit conditions and time of year.

Accommodation is a pleasant twin bedded room with living room adjacent, with TV, and comfortable sofa. You will have use of the bathroom with excellent shower.
Wi-Fi is available.
Meals are included but can be flexible depending on the daily routine/work.
Washing machine is available in the laundry.
Timescales would be a two week start with a view to mutual agreement on a longer stay if ok.
We're happy host people from the beginning of June to September.

Finally this is not a holiday but hope you will enjoy your stay at Carsefoot.
