We run an "Alternative Lifestyle" Bed & Breakfast and adult event venue, in rural North Canterbury. We have large gardens (fruit, berries, vegetables and leisure) and extensive tree hedges that take more time than we ourselves have for upkeep, so we're looking particularly for help with the outdoors. We use our gardens to feed guests the freshest possible food.

Our place is unusual, not for the prudish, but we do have a lot of fun!

We'd recommend you take a look at our website before you contact us, so you get a better idea of what we are about.

We'd recommend anyone who comes to help out has their own transport, as the nearest public transport is 13kms away, in Rangiora, or a weekday only twice daily commuter shuttle to Christchurch that runs early morning and late afternoons.

currently we would love some maintanece help as we have many varied jobs to be done. we have farm and house jobs and welcome some helpers immediately!!
We are a well travelled family used to International visitors. We have a beautiful sheep and beef farm which we work full time. We have flat, rolling and hilly country with mountain and sea views. We farm two properties and there is always plenty to do. We also have several quality horses used for smaller competitions and hunting. For a keen person there will be many opportunities to ride, if they are up to it. There is not time to teach people to ride as we are a very busy family so please do not think you can learn to ride here.The riding is generally not included as work, rather a privilege. Riding around our beautiful hill farm is regularly available for the right riders. We take the horses to the beach sometimes also, which is a special spot.
General help with the horses, garden, farm or house and cooking. We welcome people wh... more inside
