We are Simon, Tess and our three young children Tilda (6), Lotte (2) and Hector (1). We moved into this house a couple of years ago and run it as a B&B during the summer months. We're looking for help mainly with household chores (cleaning, bed making etc) and also with the children. And there is always penty of work to do in the garden :-)
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
You will live with our family, eat meals together etc., so plenty of opportunites to practise English (if not your first language) and experience life in the Highlands of Scotland. We are also keen for ourselves and our daughter to learn from you, your languages, interests and favourite food recipes. The area is rich in history, with many beautiful and fascinating places to visit. Ullapool also has a thriving arts community, with galleries and music nights (both traditional and modern).
We’re currently looking for help in February and March. Some of the work is in the garden, pruning bushes, coppicing trees etc., and there are also inside jobs, such as painting and general household maintenance. We’re also looking for general domestic help (cleaning, tidying) and someone who enjoys spending time entertaining 3 young children! The role is particularly suited to couples or two friends travelling together,
Our family home is on the beautiful west coast of Scotland, overlooking Loch Broom, on the outskirts of Ullapool. We can offer you your own room with loch view, TV and private bathroom. Also wi-fi and meals.
During the summer months, volunteers stay in a small wooden cabin the garden. The cabin has electricity and wi-fi, but no bathroom. You will share the family bathroom, which is approx 30 meters across the garden. The cabin has large windows and a spectacular view of the mountains and water, it also gives the volunteers somewhere private to relax and escape the noise of our family household :-)
Our house is one mile (15 minute walk) from the centre of Ullapool, a lively Highland village with shops, cafes and regular live music. The area has plenty to explore, with beautiful mountain and river walks
