This is an 18th century listed farmhouse, with a partially restored courtyard and outbuildings in need of lots of love and attention - particularly stone work! The property is set on 4 acres of mixed woodland, meadow and garden - which is in need of constant care also - We are definitely looking for helpers who love the outdoors:)

- Painting
- stone work (mainly low wall building) with host
- for rainy days there are numerous smaller indoor jobs such as cleaning stone walls in reclaimed sheds and painting woodwork/doors/windows

- a fair amount of work in exchange for meals and accommodation. We have been working for more than 20 years to make improvements to our house, garden and woodland area and it is absolutely a labour of love. We would like to stress that we are looking for likeminded people who will enter into this spirit as we have had experiences with helpxers who had other priorities and it wasn’t a great experience!
- an appreciation for rural solitude. Some work will be completed with the hosts and other tasks alone with some direction. Our property is quiet and secluded and we love it that way. The nearest village is two miles away. We do not have a television but we have a DVD player and a fairly extensive collection of dvds and a load of books you’re welcome to borrow. We live in a beautiful area with quiet country roads ideal for running/walking or cyling (we will provide bikes).

Helpxing with us is definitely a chance to get off the grid and into nature if thats what you’re looking for!
If you are interested in Irish culture we also live within about an hours cycle of places with great Irish music sessions. There are also at least two Irish conversation meets within 1/2 hour to and hours cycle of our place.

We are flexible and will be happy to discuss our needs and yours further via email or by phone.

One final note - in case you have allergies please be aware we have two very spoiled cats who are the real masters of our household!
