Hello from Dave and Jan!
We have availability from the end of August , through September to the end of October.
We have 3 lovely dogs, chickens , ducks, pigs, sheep and turkeys.
Our house is a dog hotel, with dogs staying with us for their holidays. The dogs are all in the house with us, so we prefer you to have some experience with dogs. You will have to walk them whatever the weather, feed them and clean up after them. We also have a cattery where cats stay for their holidays.
You will be working with the animals, gardening, painting, cleaning the house, chopping wood etc. There is always plenty to do so we guarantee that you will not be bored! There is a chance to learn about training dogs in various activities.
You will be well fed with meat and vegetables from our garden where possible. We enjoy good food and conversation around the table, and hope you have a good sense of humour!! We also like to try food cooked by our helpers.
We have one or two helpers staying here usually for 3 weeks to a month, and are happy to consider all ages. Because of the work with animals itís essential that you have a good level of English. You have a large room and we welcome non smoking couples, singles or friends to come and share our life. We can show you some of the interesting places in the area, and take you to some local events.
Leicester is in the Midlands so central for most areas of England. There are buses to Hinckley and Leicester which both have railway stations. Links to Coventry, Birmingham and surprisingly reasonable fares to London. Local attractions include Bosworth Battlefield, King Richard III Centre, National Space Centre. We like to show some of these places to our helpers as well as taking them to any events of interest. You can go for walks around the area including an interesting geocache trail.
We have Wifi here.
Please tell us about your experience with dogs in the first line of your email, even if it's just a family pet!
