We have 8 acres of woodland and the adjoining woodlands are extensive, with streams and river - good for walking, as is nearby Bodmin moor. We are about 30 minutes from the nearest seaside and 15 minutes from the nearest town, Liskeard. Our vegetable garden is raised beds on a sloping site, soft fruit area and orchard. We fatten pigs for a few months of the year and have a friendly cat, Maisie.

We live in an eco-house which we designed and did a lot of the work on. We generate our own electricity by a photo voltaic system and our water supply is from a woodland spring. Accommodation is comfortable - own double room. We are not vegetarian but are happy to cater for vegetarians.. We have good wireless internet access.

Help mostly needed in the woodland and garden - getting in wood, and maintaining paths etc.

Our daughter and family are next door and also need help in their woodlands. So helpers can have more variety and young company. Jess is a botanical illustrator, basket and coffin-maker (for green burials), giving classes on these and other art/craft activities.

At the moment we have lots of soft fruit ripening, lots of picking 9and eating) to do. We also plan to make fencing with chestnut/hazel and willow hurdles.
