The Lee Abbey Estate is looking for someone to join the team to help with the efficient running of the Lee Abbey Estate. Are you called to a Community way of life?

Would you be willing to give a year of your time to come and live in community and help with the efficient running of the Lee Abbey Estate, which includes 280 acres of Farm, Woodland and Gardens within the Exmoor National Park. You would be working with our own Cattle, Sheep and Pigs as well as woodland work and garden maintenance. We are looking for people, with some relevant experience, that are keen to learn, enjoy outside work, are physically fit, work well as part of a team and are interested in countryside issues. We do however need you to hold a full driving license. In return we can offer training, widening of our experience and the opportunity to work in a beautiful part of God’s creation.
