We are retired and semi-retired management development consultants. We and our six cats live in a 500 year old former farm house of historical note in the beautiful hill country of central Wales 30 mins from the English border.

Restoring our house to its former glory has been a labour of love and we'd like some help from people with experience of good quality painting and decorating (our kitchen cupboards need a fine finish! ), garden maintenance and general household DIY/ maintenance. Being comfortable using ladders will be important and some of the garden work will involve clearing/lopping trees & digging so it will be quite physical. The start date would ideally be the beginning of May.

We think it's suitable for a single or couple/pair of friends and can offer a good standard of accommodation including your own bathroom, plus the option to eat with us or cook for yourselves depending on preference/who is around. If you'd like to share some of your own favourites wit... more inside

Situated 4 miles from the beautiful seaside town of Aberystwyth Mid Wales in a tranquil setting surrounded by agricultural land, our peaceful smallholding houses a large Canadian pine building that was originally shipped over to be used as airforce barracks during the second world war. More recently it has been used as a spiritual retreat and maintains its drug and alcohol free status. The building is undergoing refurbishments so that it can continue supporting those people who need space to work on themselves and their creative/spiritual pursuits. If you are looking for somewhere that is hassle free and peaceful and you enjoy being close to nature we would be delighted to hear from those who have building maintenance skills or are willing to learn and get stuck in helping us breathe new life into the place. There are also opportunities to work on the land if outdoor work is more your thing. We are available for long or short term placements.
