Our names are Roland and Andrew and we live in a ranch style chalet bungalow situated in well maintained and partly wooded grounds of approx 1.6 hectares in a rural village on the Suffolk / Cambridgeshire border overlooking neighbouring paddocks. Being rural it is very peaceful but there is little in the way of public transport. The village is about 6 miles from Newmarket and just under 20 miles from the beautiful University City of Cambridge with fast rail connections to London. You will live in the main house and have your own room with lovely views of the garden.

There is a reasonable mobile network coverage and good internet connection which helpers are welcome to use.

We are keen and experienced gardeners and RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) qualified. We are seeking short term help (ideally 2 weeks but other terms negotiable) to help in maintaining the grounds in particular the woodland, trimming back ivy, tidying trees, stacking firewood and general grounds management.

This is an ideal opportunity for a helper to learn and gain practical gardening experience under the guidance and supervision of qualified gardeners. In addition, it provides the opportunity to use English as an everyday as neither of us are particularly fluent in other languages.

This is our first hosting but we have really friendly and lovely neighbours living next door in 15 acres with horses and regularly have helpX helpers stay. We sometimes work with the helpX helpers which we really enjoy. You will probably find fellow helpers next door and can probably hang-out with them in your spare time.

Please let us know if you have any questions or would like further information. We look forward to hearing from you.
