    Description

    Hello all you wonderful people. We are experienced workaway hosts who provide a welcoming, peaceful and creative home and delicious food (please see our feedback).

    We are looking for someone who can help in the garden from 15 November - 23 December (but you don't have to come for the whole time), (doing some quite heavy digging to plant new hedges and create some beds) and help a bit around the house and with the children.

    If you like the sound of us and you are fun, hard-working, imaginative, and independent and you like children then please do send us a message. You could stay for anything from 2 weeks to 3 months.

    We find it works better for the children to only host people with a good level of English. Sadly, we only have space for one person at a time.

    If you're interested and want to find out more please get in touch and we can chat on Skype.

    Happy adventuring and maybe see you soon!

    Help

    We are looking for someone to help in the garden: digging new beds, planting hedges, cutting the grass, painting window frames, etc. There's also a bit of daily tidying, laundry and babysitting but not too much!

    The priority is the hedging as the plants have to get in the ground!!

    A quiet, little bedroom to yourself. It's very small but everyone sleeps well there and the rest of the house is big.

    Shared bathroom, a huge kitchen and lots of living space. Outside, there is a big garden and fields and woods for walks or runs.

    Food is homemade, delicious and plentiful. Most of our fruit and veg are organic and we eat meat/fish 2-3 times a week, Top cakes.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Ours is a large, very old and beautiful house in the middle of the countryside. There is no public transport to the village but we can give lifts to the lovely market town of Frome, from which you are in easy reach of world heritage city of Bath, Bristol, Glastonbury, Wells, Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge and Bradford-on-Avon. London is about 2.5 hours away either by train or there is an excellent coach service. We also have a bicycle at your disposal.

    If you want city lights and widescreen TVs this might not be the place for you but if you'd like quiet, country living in a beautiful house with a loving, creative, busy family then this is it!
