We are currently looking for a horse friendly, child friendly couple for a few months over Feb/March. To help with gardening and and farm chores. Just generally day to day stuff. There is also a bit of horse stuff coming up too so horse sense would be awesome. We would like folk who are practical and show initiative. We have a cleaner so that is not on the to do list, aside from keeping your cottage clean and tidy.

Just a bit about us ....We are horsey couple with a pretty awesome 13 yr old son. Living on 45 acres within 5mins walk to Otaki township. We have a lovely 110 yr old homestead amongst 5 acres of tree laden garden.

There's loads of animals here. Horses (show jumpers and trekking horses), cattle, sheep, a lovely gentle border terrier called Buck and a rather handsome cat named Bob

We would require 24 hours per week per person in exchange for full board and lodgings. Anything over that, if you want to, and not compulsory would be an hourly rate.

You would have a cute wee self contained cottage with a gorgeous outlook. A double bed and loft Nice linen and TV.

Absolutely no smokers. We do eat vegetarian food but also have meat, chicken and fish in our diets. Plenty of fruit, veges, baking, good coffee and good wine :-)
You would dine with us as the cottage is not ideal for cooking main meals. You are welcome to cook as well if you like. We all like different types of food.

You would love it here but we do insist that lazy folk need not call. We like people who get up and get going making the most of their day. There's gorgeous beaches and we are handy to a multitude of native bush walks, camping etc. plus walking distance to a few lovely cafes and good outlet shopping.

Cant wait to hear from you :-) Cheers Jo, Campbell and Wyeth
