St Michael's Mount is looking for a new gardener – and the dream job comes with a £28,500 salary and its own house

IF you have green fingers and fancy living on an island, there's a job that could be perfect for you.

St Michael's Mount off the coast of Cornwall is looking for a new gardener to tend to the plants on the island.

The job comes with a £28,500 salary, as well as a two or three bedroom house on the island that you can live in.

The job listing even claims that the lucky gardener would need to be able to abseil down the castle as part of the role.

It explains: "Gardening on a rock in the middle of the sea isn’t for the faint-hearted, nor is abseiling from the battlements of a castle.

"But the Garden Team on St Michael’s Mount take all this in their stride as well as the general terrain which would challenge the most agile mountain goat.

"Beyond the physical challenges, the Garden Team are all passionate about the island’s unique garden and continue to develop the plant collection using species that thrive in one of the UK’s most challenging environments."
