Live In Gardener Job in the Cotswolds


My client requires a skilled Gardener for their beautiful rural farm Estate in Oxfordshire. The 6 acre Gardener is located within a 400 acre estate. You will be working with another Gardener, and will report to the Head Gardener. The Garden offer informal and formal areas, and there is a tennis court and swimming pool also.


You will be working with;


  • Informal and Formal Gardens

  • Water Features

  • Mixed Borders

  • Climbers

  • Trees

  • Vegetable Garden and Greenhouse

  • Working with a variety of exotic plants

  • You will play a key role in the development of the Garden and Stage 2 of a large redesign

  • Lawn Management and Maintenance

  • Weed Control

  • Grounds Maintenance

  • Use and Maintenance of Machinery

  • Assisting with chores such as processing firewood, laying fires etc.


Experience in the maintenance of swimming pools would be a bonus, as would experience with Kitchen Gardening. The ideal candidate will be experienced, hard working, and highly motivated. While you will be taking instruction from the Head Gardener, you will also be required to take initiative and work without supervision.


You will take pride in your work, have a flexible and positive approach, and be happy to ‘muck in’ with other team members on the property. As you will be living in, you may be responsible for the security of the property when required.


You must be an animal lover! You may be required to assist with horses occasionally.


A full UK Driving Licence is essential.
