We're taking a short break from hosting as it's pretty chilly in the winter and the volunteer accomodation isn't very warm. Back for Spring 2020 though!

We are looking for short & long term help, either with farm or building work or a mix depending on your preference & experience.

We are a 20 acre family croft in a quiet location where we like help with a wide range of jobs including all aspects of growing vegetables for a box delivery round, lambing (April), firewood, tree planting, fencing, building, animal care (sheep, bees, cattle, hens). A good work ethic is more important than previous experience & we love to learn from our volunteers too!

Projects include building a load bearing straw bale house with traditional post & beam verandas, any trades / prior experience is very welcome! Next job is internal clay rendering & lime washing, the outside has been done now.

Hello,

I'm looking for a house sitter from mid October. Ettrick is a beautiful relatively remote rural location just over one hour`s drive from both Edinburgh and Carlisle. I am flexible about arrangements and look forward to ensuring my visitor`s stay is rewarding, in exchange for some help with the house, garden and one lovely old horse.

I'd really like some help with painting some rooms in the house and generally keeping the garden tidy.

Due to location a car is important. There is a pub 3 miles away and the nearest shopping half an hours drive.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards Kevin
