    Description

    Hi travellers,
    We are a loving family of four and we live in a spacious home in between the market towns of Frome and Warminster, on the outskirts of the lovely Longleat Estate. The bus stop directly outside our house and so it is possible to be in the two market towns within minutes, it is also possible to explore the many bridleways around our house. We also have a local village pub opposite our house.

    I am holistic therapist and my husband is a gardener and so we try our best to eat healthily and meditate among the chaos of family life. We have a holiday let in Spain and our daughter is also learning Spanish at school.

    We live in a spacious family home with beautiful garden. The accommodation for the volunteer will be in a large double room. We have an en-suite so the bathroom is only shared with the children (age 7 & 3) and it has a bath and shower. There are several communal areas, a conservatory overlooking the garden, a kitchen/ diner, lounge and upstairs study.
