We live in the beautiful Yarrow Valley 10 minutes from Selkirk, in the country of the Scottish Borders, Scotland (1 hour train journey from Edinburgh to Galashiels or Tweedbank, then bus onto Selkirk, where we will pick you up. Johnny is a tree surgeon and Lulu runs the holiday let business. The businesses are very varied and there is always something different to do each day whether clearing, building, making, sanding, gardening, strimming, cleaning, painting, joinery, furniture making and more.

Qualified joiners would be fantastic, for projects in our Yurt and Shepherds Hut area in the woods. Needing a shower block and loo facility :) We are wanting to make a log cabin in the woods too, so anyone who has the skills to build and make a camping area would be much appreciated.

We would love to welcome you into our house, there is lots to do when not working, beautiful walks from the door and a tennis court, with a loch 20 minutes up the valley for a swim!

We have three dogs, jack russell called Fidget and Dachshund Milly. Our children are all away now but come back every so often. We often have friends coming to stay, church events in the garden through the year and camping days; it's quite a busy house.

Transport from the house is limited but invariably one of us will go into Selkirk almost every day. We are 20 minutes from the train station and 1 hour up to Edinburgh. I have details on how to get here by airport etc. which I will send you if you come.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Johnny and Lulu Watson
