We are a friendly family with beautiful twin babies who are absolutely wonderful - and have also turned our lives upside down! We are looking for some help in the house and garden in a bid to reintroduce some much needed order back into our lives :-). Help looking after the twins is also sought although this is more playing with than looking after.
We will also be undertaking a renovation project on our Victorian home therefore anyone with experience in this field would be greatly welcomed!
We live In a lovely house in a picturesque, historic town in Kent (Royal Tunbridge Wells) which is also only c50mins by train from the centre of London if you choose to explore the capital.
It is a fantastic location for so many activities - we have the countryside right on our door step and we're less than an hour from the coast and also from Gatwick (for short getaways to Europe).
Kent is regarded as the 'Garden of England' and we have lots of farms in the nearby area as well as beautiful countryside and fantastic country pubs. Strange to think we are only 50mins from the bustle of London and everything that has to offer too!
I am originally from Scotland and moved here after I married my English husband. I am currently on maternity leave and my husband works in the City in London. We have both travelled extensively, love adventure and meeting people from very walk of life. Our home is usually filled with laughter and humour unless there is a Scotland v England match on.... :-)
This workaway would suit 2 people travelling together, preferably a couple.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
The town is perfect for a wide variety of activities - for those loving the outdoors and also those who'd like to visit London. It is a widely visited town due to its beauty and history. Our house is close (a short walk through the woods) to the historic part of the town (the Pantiles) which regularly hosts festivals, farmers markets and so forth. They also hold a jazz festival throughout the summer too.
As a family we have travelled extensively and love adventure - my husband spent many years touring Asia and I lived in various African countries as a child due to my father's job.
The help appreciated would be:
- Support with the home & garden. Support in the home would involve tidying, laundry and cooking (we eat a healthy diet). I'd also love to do a massive clear out ahead of our renovations and looking for help listing things on eBay, etc. - - Support in the garden would be general maintenance, planting etc. There are some wild parts which we are looking to clear.
- Support for renovations. Building skills, plumbing, electrics etc would be greatly welcomed
English, some French and Spanish
Your accommodation would be a double bedroom and your own private bathroom. We have sectioned off a part of the house - originally for a nanny - therefore you'd also have your own entrance.
In terms of expectations of those living with us, we'd like you to feel comfortable and at ease.
It's important travellers are self-sufficient and proactive.
