Once the lockdown is lifted, we will be needing GARDENERS WITH THEIR OWN BASIC TOOLS (secateurs, hoe, broom, electric hedge trimmers, long extension lead).

First: Please read ALL of our listing before contacting us!

THE DEAL: Because of covid-19 we decided to stay in NZ for a few more months. So we are looking for a mature couple with genuine gardening skills. You get to stay in our house FOR ONE OR TWO WEEKS to do the gardening, and clean the already-clean house! That's all we want.

You'll have the whole house to yourself. Work on the garden for 3 hours a day each and provide your own food. You'll need to bring basic gardening tools as ours are locked up. We can borrow a lawn mower for you.

The house is usually used for Airbnb so it's spotlessly clean now, and needs to be kept/left that way when you leave (a cleaner will do the laundry).

ACCOMMODATION: Bright, airy, cosy, comfy, clean, tidy and well-equipped. You will not rough it here, and you will never be cold! You can feel at home here, and relax and explore the area.

NOTE: There's NO WIFI, but you can use your phone data to tether to your other device - that's what we do and it works fine. Or use the library, pub or cafe wifi for free!

The Somerset house is on the edge of a lovely village in a beautiful rural area of South Somerset.

You get excellent private accommodation in your own double bedroom. All bedrooms are lovely and have comfy beds, great mattresses, nice, freshly laundered bedding, duvets and good pillows.

THE AREA: The Somerset home is rural, but not isolated. It's really lovely.

Here's a bit of information about Somerset: A real slice of old England. There are lanes, meadows and tracks all around for walking, running and cycling. Close to us there are stunning historic villages, a fantastic ancient cider farm, great local pubs and award-winning, unique cafes, historic mansions and gardens, Cheddar Gorge, the fabulous Roman city of Bath, and the world famous Glastonbury town.

THE FOOD/SMOKING: This is a completely non-smoking, vegetarian household.
