A very large rambling house, 100 years old. Large 3 acre garden set on hillside with views to mountains of North Pennines and Lake District. Great area for outdoor tourism with Hadrian's Wall and lakes nearby. Have wetsuits to lend you! Exceptional mountain biking.

Fruit bushes, orchard, and other fine plants and trees. All in need of care and preparation for spring.

Thanks to previous volunteers the house is now running successfully as a bed and breakfast and a weekend holiday let.

1 mile to a bus stop, 15 minutes drive to Carlisle train station. Quite isolated if you don't have your own transport. Bikes available.

I need help to paint interior and exterior and prepare gardens.

The hours would be spent out in the garden turning over beds and cutting back brambles, lawnmowing, path clearance,lighting fires, collecting wood and generally making property work and having fun.

I, Roland run the house full time. I have 5 children but none live at the house full time. I am British/French and also speak a bit of German. Happy to improve your English as I talk a lot!

So you may be on your own with tenants and guests with full management of house.

Short stays from sunday to friday perfect.

We would like somebody to come now FROM EUROPE ONLY or who is legally allowed to work here.

Happy with single or couple.

WHAT I LIKE: although practical skills are welcome and part essential you will be sharing my home and I find that left leaning arty types and/or those with moderate eccentricity will fit in well!
