Last Updated: September 29, 2019

Help wanted to help clear fallen wood, chop logs, and some repair work on 15 acre Smallholding in Rutland UK.
Helpers accommodated in a nice cos semi detached house in the local town or on site in a Victorian house in need of some renovation ( i.e. not living with host) Helpers will be provided with a cupboard, freezer and fridge full of food for breakfasts and evening meals - (Lunch prepared, cooked and shared with host).
The site is isolated and there is NO TV, nor wifi but plenty of trees, birds and animals to see. It is 2 miles from Rutland Water. The semi is in town but again has no wifi ( due to a previous helpers abuse of the system but there is wifi in local pubs, coffee bars and library)
Bikes provided.
Non Smokers only.
Please if you wish to talk to me by phone text me so I do not think you are a nuisance call and I will call you back.
