We live in a beautiful Grade 2 listed Tudor House with 3 acres of ancient garden, meadow and woodland that need developing
***At the moment I would really like some help with setting up a web page IT organisation (female) and the garden so
a couple could work. We have a beautiful self contained studio in the garden that we normally rent out that we are giving over to the Help X project.

We also have some work inside and outside of the house itself - sanding, painting, drilling. Therefore it would be advantageous for you to have some skills.
There is generally a lot of repair and fixing up work nothing too challenging but common sense and some experience in this area is required.
We would hope to make your work enjoyable and rewarding , you would be helping us maintain this special place of history which we feel sure you will fall in love with as we have done.
This would be a great opportunity to live and nurture a part of English heritage and we would welcome creative ideas and input. It would be a great way to enhance your own learning ,
The house is situated on one of the oldest existing High streets in England. When you are at the back of the house you feel like you are in the middle of the countryside overlooking the ancient Ash down forest.
It is then quite amazing that you can literally step out front and grab a coffee in the High street of this quaint market town.
There are excellent links to London, Brighton and Tunbridge Wells. Many people believe this to be the most beautiful part of England because it is on the Kent /Sussex /Surrey border.
You would have your own very comfortable studio as aforementioned, with cooking facilities ,ensuite and wifi. All food would be provided for
We can be flexible with hours and days of work depending on your plans for intance if you have a concert in London on Wednesday you could work on Saturday instead.
We would want you to work 5 days a week, leaving weekends free to explore.
It is worth saying that we expect you to to do your own thing including "providing your own meals on Saturday and Sunday "so we can have private family time.
*Some helpers haven't appreciated this and it has tarnished an otherwise perfect relationship.
