Dependent on experience but a very good package is available.
We have a 2 bedroom cottage that goes with the job on the edge of the farm.
There is a small village about 1 mile from the farm with a primary school, shop and pub. Larger shops can be found in the nearby tourist hotspot of Ilfracombe or Barnstaple.
The farm its self is located in beautiful North Devon only a couple of miles from the stunning beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde. The coastline has just been named a surf reserve, one of only 12 in the world. Also we have the rugged national park of Exmoor within an easy drive from the farm, boosting amazing wildlife and picturesque villages. We are a family farm at heart and would like a person with the same values as the run the farm with. This includes lending a hand with other work on the farm at busy times, treating people with respect and leading by example.
