We have a large Georgian Farmhouse just outside Castle Combe - one of Englands most beautiful Cotswolds villages, which was recently used as the location for Stephen Spielberg`s movie `War Horse`. We operate as a Guest House and also have two self catering cottages in the grounds. Guests can have dinner and afternoon tea here which is all home made using mostly our own home grown vegetables and fruit which we produce on our land. We are looking for helpers throughout the year and we usually prefer it if you can stay three weeks or longer. We have a lovely Vintage Shepherds Hut where our helpers can sleep during the summer months. In the winter we have a cosy room in the Farmhouse for our helpers. We would really like someone who enjoys cooking and cleaning and home maintenance together with all aspect of the hospitality business. If you have experience that would be great however training will be given.Your English language will need to be good to excellent : definitely no beginners please - as we do not teach English. You will help for on average six hours a day which includes helping to serve breakfast or dinner to our guests at the weekend and have one free day during the week to visit Bath or the surrounding villages. We have free WiFi and there are plenty of things to do in your spare time. We will require references from your previous Helpx hosts or your college tutor so please include them with your enquiry together with a photograph. You will not be considered without references being submitted - sorry. We have the next availability for a Helpx volunteer from July 13th for three weeks or longer however you can apply for dates throughout the year. Our helpers will gain a huge amount of experience while having fun too. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
