Accommodation sought: house share or house sit?

From Helen Bailey:

We have a helper coming to work at the nursery over the summer. His name is Paul Smyth and he is an expert galanthophile (snowdrop man) fresh out of university. Paul is 22 years old.

Paul is looking for accommodation from May until August/September

Paul is looking for accommodation from May until August/September

He is relocating from Ireland, and as well as being an academic kind of guy, he has lived in a farm all his life, so is great at building stone walls etc!

Paul is looking to either house share with people his own age or house sit from the middle of May until August/September. 

Having come from a small village in Ireland, it would be great for him to stay here in the village, close to the nursery, or in Bath or Bradford-on-Avon. He is most flexible.

Please contact me on 867761 or by email at helen@evolution-plants.com if you can help.
