Our 17th century farmhouse is home to Piers, Sue, three young people aged 18-22 (two are away at university), two house cats and a small, very friendly dog. Our stay length is two, occasionally three, weeks. We are now looking for help in October and November.

We offer helpxers comfortable accommodation in a prime tourist area, excellent food and a genuine welcome, in return for a fair level of physical work. It's a great opportunity for people who are keen to stay in a family environment and learn stuff about country living. We usually take helpxers one at a time; sometimes we have two people here.

Our home is within sight of the sea in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are shingle beaches to walk to and steep-sided sandy coves easily reachable by bike (although the roads are hilly!). South Devon is an enormously popular tourist destination from Easter to October, when it earns its reputation as the sunniest part of England.

We moved here seven years ago and h... more inside

We have just moved into a lovely old farmhouse in the beautiful village of Kingsbury Episcopi in the heart of the Somerset Levels and the home of cider making! We have 3 young daughters who are 5, 3 and 1 and we will be getting a kitten and chickens very soon! We have gardens, barns and an orchard and we would love some enthusiastic, positive and willing people/person to come and help run our lively, busy household and garden! My husband works full time and I am at home looking after the children. We always have visitors and friends visiting and can introduce you to local people. The village has a great traditional pub and a shop. There is excellent cycling and walking around us in the gorgeous countryside. We are very happy to drive to the closet train station should you wish to visit Bath, Bristol, Exeter or London and there's are also buses. We have a double room with shower en suite, Wifi and TV. We hope you'd like to come and stay with us.

**PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF AND EXPERIENCE WITH HORSES**
I only ask this because we have taken people on to train them in the past and found it takes weeks for them to adjust and then it is time to leave - it is boring here for someone who does not know how to work with a horse. It can also be dangerous for someone who doesn't know what they are doing.
