We have availability after 20th October, please get in touch, a minimum of 2 weeks stay is required :)


We need help with painting, gardening, horses & home.

Helpers who have experience of horses and can ride are ideally placed but if you have an interest or willingness to learn everything can be shown. Male or female... fit and healthy (essential)... get in touch.

For those interested in riding, lessons can be provided for any level and also riding/ hacking in company. Only those who are confident and deemed capable will have the unaccompanied freedom to ride and train … private home with competition and Arabian horses… beautiful and intelligent, (worth a google if you are unfamiliar of the breed).


We are a busy family. We have a lovely traditional granite steading with amazing views across the Cairngorms and situated in Royal Deeside, Scotland. Steeped in history and on the Castle & Whiskey trail. We live between two castles within a 15 min cycle ride. Aberdeen and the beaches of the East coast of Scotland are 10 miles away. The closest town is Banchory, 30min cycle ride, situated on the River Dee and is a popular tourist destination with country pubs and shops. There is everything on offer in the area, from Skiing to Surfing, beaches to munros (Scottish hills). Motor sport to Mountian biking.

I have an active family including 2 children. We have 6 horses, a dog and a number of outbuildings. We would like help from someone who is self motivated and can work independently, with experience of horses & helping in the home. Male or female. Approximately 5 hours work a day, involving horse and field care, fence painting, decorating and general home help. Hours worked are flexible to allow for full days off. One day off a week or more if agreed. Our helpers are expected to be flexible in their attitude to work and what may be needed on each day... an extra pair of hands really.

In return, lovely accommodation including bedroom with double bed, dining table, private sofa / tv area; internet access. This first floor living area, for exclusive use by our helper can be gated at the bottom of the stairs to allow for additional privacy.

If you have any horse or decorating skills or willingness to learn we would be keen to hear from you.
