We have a 3 acre small holding. It was a bare field when we bought it. Over the past 6 years we have been developing and planting it up. On the land we have raised beds and a polytunnel which we currently use to be self sufficient in organic vegetables. We have projects to plant a coppice for firewood, and develop a wildlife lake area. We want to develop and manage the field in a way that will encourage wildlife to return to what was an intensively farmed field for many years. We are situated a 10-15 minute walk from a beautiful beach. We have a small caravan (with a double sized bed) which we can offer as accomodation. It has a kitchen area and a shower room which doesn't haven a running shower, but we have a pump action shower which you can use in there. A bit basic but we lived with it for years :) We also have space for people to pitch tents or park campervans if you prefer. We have a compost toilet that guests can use. In return for 4 hours help we would offer DIY breakfasts and a decent hot evening meal (home cooked, plant based!). People coming to stay must be comfortable with dogs.
