Hi,
I live in a modern bungalow, high on the Knockmealdown mountains, called "THE VEE", a very scenic area,covered in wild rhododendrons which flower May/ June.

This small holding is friendly, warm, chaotic, fun, flexible, hard working place, full of laughter and accommodates all the animals below. These animals are my children and come first, their needs are paramount.2 horses, 2 donkey, 11 dogs, 4 cats and lots of chickens, 11 ducks and a few guinepigs, 9 large pet lambs and 4 pet lambs this year.

I have two children who live and work in manchester. they visit when they can. My mother stays here permanently and is a great baker of scones and pies. She loves playing cards and word games, ideal for learning the language

I am not organic as only been here 4 years , I do 1/2 and 1/2, where I can. I try to keep things economic friendly and am aware of my carbon footprints.

I have a number of small ongoing projects which I need help with in preparation for next winter. Last year we built a log cabin so this year I have nearly finished building a toilet and shower. I also need help painting as this winter i put in patio doors so several rooms need touching up. The vegetable garden needs clearing and maintaining for summer vegetables,so weeding and distributing compost is a must in order to have great vegetables for this year. Hopefully in dry sunny weather we have to water all plants and vegetables and new trees from our own water supply daily.

There is ample opportunity to go walking, cycling, table tennis, horse riding,social and Irish dancing, if chores are finished and your 4 hours are done. You would have your own ensuite bedroom and WiFi which is a little slow due to our location, or log cabin which sits next to the stream and over looks the fields, if you prefer you could stay in the caravan or camp in fields, weather permitting. Food is included, I usually cook, and you clean,or vis versa, household chores shared as we all live here.

Ideally I'm looking for animal friendly person, who likes outdoors, wants to learn about dogs and who likes home cooked food and interested in animal husbandry.Ideally you would also have to be fairly physically fit and use own initiative too as a lot of the work is manual and outdoors.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you
