  • Hours per day I am happy to be a bit flexible and work hours can depend on what task is at hand, I will assign tasks so you can manage your own time to a certain extent, no more than 4 or 5 hours a day and plenty of down time to rest and explore.
  • Work requirements: I bought this large traditional stone farmhouse last year and am renovating it into a farm stay and retreat space. It is in really good condition and has all the comfort of a modern home, but It is in need of some building work & decorating, gardening & landscaping. Things like painting, outdoor decking, building a tree house, fixing lights, vegetable garden, fencing, etc If you have construction/decorating or building knowledge that is even better!

  • Additional info
  • You probably need to drive ideally, but I have a car you can use also and cycling to the local town is possible. It feels remote and not for lovers of mod cons or luxury living. It has all the things you need including central heating, baths, and dishwasher, and is very clean, but has a real rustic charm. I work from home and won't always be able to oversee the work so Ideally someone who is mature and not shy to get on with tasks.
