We live in a pretty village called Dunsford on the edge of Dartmoor national park. Its Pips place and also living here are Rory (son), his gilfriend Elsa (french speaking) ,and a couple. We try to grow as much veg as we can for ourselves, we have a vegetable patch which need to be prepared for next year. We have 7 chickens, 3 geese, a dog and a cat. In walking distance there is a wood, river and Dartmoor national park. Pip takes Finn, our border collie walking on Dartmoor with a rambling group on Wednesdays. She will happily include you.
We are in the middle of the bus route between Exeter and Mortenhampstead on the Moor. Also there is space to park a car or a van.

Elsa and I work as a gardeners. We are going on holiday to Spain to our project small holding from the 14th December to the 12th of January.
We offering a 4 week stay in our cosy studio (see picture) separate from the house, in return of help with the animals- you will live with the lovely friendly cat "not allowed in Pip house", open and close the chickens/geese, morning/evening and feed them. The lodger and Pip live in the house and can help some days. Pip is working most weekends and would like some help with walking the dog. Finn would love to go with you for walks.

We are looking for people who are happy to entertain themselves most of the time - reading (books provided), walking (maps provided) and relaxing. And like animals.

The studio has a wood fire, wood provided. There is WIFI, and basic cooking/tea/toast facilities. There is no running water except a tap outside. We have a 20L water container inside the studio. There is a comfortable compost toilet 30meters from the place. You are welcome to use the bathrooms from house, and the newly done kitchen. You are welcome to share the meals, even cristmas/new year.

We are looking to finalise someone to help as soon as possible.

**Please note we have a policy that we need photo/photocopy of you passport/drivers just for peace of mind :D**

Look forward to hearing from you.
