Thank you all for your amazing help but also for your friendship. We are looking for some help in our home and garden. Stays will be for two/three weeks, sometimes longer if required. We require help and house sit and animal care for December ; covering Christmas looking after cat and chicken. Also help required in the house /garden for November December. We hope you enjoy the countryside,the beaches, peace and serenity we have around us.If you are looking for some relaxing space this is the place to come to. Calm,quiet and the sound of birdsong. We require someone who can work in the garden we do not need childcare, language or cooking skills. Work will be mainly tidying up in the house and house work where needed, general gardening. Some painting would be good. Cleaning in the house sometimes . Someone who is also happy to work on their own, has Skills to complete tasks and to help where required. We are fairly flexible and offer the opportunity for you to cook if you wish. We work from home. We live in an old house set in a small village 4 miles from Weymouth/ Dorchester the Olympic sailing event and the beautiful Jurassic coast. Set off and discover this beautiful coastline on your two days off. A short journey to historic market town of Dorchester or Weymouth and the fabulous Durdle Door / Lulworth Cove
We require Non Smokers / No vaping etc./ no children/ pets
Private room in our house. .wifi / require House/ cat sitter during December .
We hope that you can use your initiative - see what needs doing and just get on with it. Must have some experience of general gardening, digging, weeding. We require polite, well mannered people, that respect our home and
contents. This has got to be a good exchange as we are busy people, easy going. please see all of our references from over the years; apart from the one about the bears in the wood we don't have any bears in the wood or wolves!!

This was my first experience and it couldn't have been better. The family are warm, friendly, kind and generous people and I had an amazing time with them. I was thinking of staying for two weeks and I ended up staying a whole month. I had my own room and I could make use of the common areas and beautiful garden. And did I mention that Nita is the most wonderful cook in Dorset!? Prepare yourself because this lovely lady is going to keep you well fed!!! They were so kind that they even drove me to places or picked me up when I returned from visiting another town. My tasks involved gardening and housework just five hours a day, five times a week. Dorset and the surrounding counties are beautiful and easy to access by bus or train. But the best part of this experience was without a doubt the family. They do provide a home away from home and I will always remember them fondly.

"I spent three lovely weeks with Nita and David and I really couldn't have hoped to find a better place. The family was really kind and I felt home as soon as I arrived. They took care of me and provided me anything I needed. It's also a very united family! I was really surprised for the cooperation I saw. Everything is well organized and everybody has his own task. In that sense it's a real english family!
I did different sort of jobs among which gardening, sanding, painting, builiding. The job wasn't too heavy and it was scanned between breaks and meals. They're also very flexible about working time.
The area around is breathtaking. If you go there, you can't miss the Jurassic Coast!
As an Italian, I feel compelled to thank Nita for the good food she prepared me!

Thank you for everything!
We operate a holiday let here so privacy and Peace are very important. We look forward to welcoming you to our busy and rural home. See our many references from the many helpers we have had here. We look forward to hearing from you . non smokers only Thank you, Nita & David
