Rural shared house/Homestay, original farmstead. We are looking for people who would like to live at our place for free, in exchange for 3 or 4 hours work per day.

Lately we've had a spate of short termers. We don't want anymore thank you. We prefer people to stay two weeks minimum or longer :-)

Ours is a gay friendly house


You would need to be OK with nudity (people also swim and bathe (fire baths) nude here too (outside - all year round) - I know - its weird, but what can you do?) ... a lot of our friends (and me) like to come out here to enjoy the sun :-) It's not everyday in-your-face nudity, but it can happen from time to time.

Overall we have been very pleased with all our helpers so far. Although we would prefer people over 25 years old

We live a really busy life with a sign at the door saying "welcome to the madhouse", as I'm working as a midwife locally and my kids are busy at school etc We warn you we are totally crazy on ponies and horses.
