A beautiful 12 acre smallholding on the Roseland Peninsula. On the outskirts of a small village 2 miles from the sea. Our land slopes down through orchards, past ponds & polytunnels to a camping field with yurts & 4 acres of woodland. We have polytunnels, veg gardens & we follow a no-dig approach. We grow for people staying on-site & specialise in salad leaves which we sell locally. We try to be sustainable as possible - with a wind turbine, solar panels & managed woodland. We also have posh compost loos. Accommodation is in a caravan and there is a large kitchen & communal space in our straw-bale barn. We are big foodies & eat excellent veggie food, which we are happy to advise on, making sourdough bread, chutneys, pesto, jams, vinegars etc. Dave is a has great gardening & plant knowledge & Sara a very good cook!

APRIL UPDATE New comfortable caravan with view to die for! Help needed with woodwork, weeding and yurt care - an interest (though not necessarily lots of experience) in gardening & sustainable way of life essential. Look forward to hearing from you :-)
