Happy helpers needed

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe can take up to 4 happy helpers, depending on whether couples or okay with sharing a large bedroom or staying in a caravan. 3 meals a day in return for 5 hours work a day. Also look at host 100390 on helpx or gardening and carpentry on workaway. Very full descriptions on there. We prefer longer term people, 2 weeks or more. We're on Whatsapp on 029 777 9393. Either text or call. Not always near phone though. Sorry, no children as we have ponds they could fall into. And our dog is not too keen on them. Don't want them to be eaten!!! Lol. Lots of cats so people who love all animals are good. We are meat eaters so possibly not good for vegans, although we've had our share of vegans/vegetarians. And they have been happy here.

    First requirements - happy and hardworking, with easy going natures/personalities.

  • We live in an area with beautiful views, we have, and still are, carved and worked our place into a sanctuary. Thousands of plants in he form of trees, shrubs and hedges, which do need trimming. But if all the work is done and it's a lovely day, off we go on a picnic.
