2 houses joined together, one is our home, the other is for airbnb guests on short term stays. All are surrounded by a largish varied garden with organic vegetable planters as well as Fruit trees, camomile lawn, wildlife pond and mini woodland etc.
I am retired but write songs/play guitar and some photography. Eibhlin my wife does aromatherapy. The house is a mile from Killyleagh, a small historic town dominated by Ireland's largest privately owned castle. Good public transport to and from Belfast (18 miles) from Crossgar, 5 miles away (can drive you there). We need help to do some specific projects in the garden In august 2019 if the right kind of person came along, you would need to be strong and sensitive to plants.
The projects are clearing overgrown areas, digging and developing new planted areas, and repairing/rebuilding raised beds. Construction skills would be most welcome. We might add a new wooden building. We always need general help painting and weeding.
The house is quirky, full of unusual art and decor. Ideally would suit someone who really appreciates gardens and being outside most of the time. Musicians are particularly welcome. Your accommodation is in our side of the house in nice bedroom with good internet. 4-5 hours work a day if possible. Shared bathroom, meals vegetarian mainly organic, would prefer someone who is happy to cook on some days, you will find a lot of inspiration, peace and learning while here. Sorry no smokers.
