  • Description


    Hi, we are a family of 3, me and 2 young girls (and a cat), and we have a housemate too.

    We live in a 2 bedroom house in a lovely area not far from the centre of Bristol. I have an allotment not far away. We are quite chaotic and rather messy, and the girls are lively but lovely people! I don't need anyone to look after the kids as they are with their Dad 3 nights a week, so I like to be with them when they are with me- But they would enjoy meeting you and showing you around!

    I love to meet new people, but I sometimes am away at work, so would welcome 2 friends or a couple, if you would rather not be alone.

    I can offer 2 single mattresses or 1 double mattress in a private room, all basic facilities are here. If you are a family, I can't host very young children as the house is a little unsafe. My youngest child is 5 and I think that would be the youngest. Please note it is not a very big house either!
    I speak a little bit of French and tiny bit of Spanish, and always pleased to hear all languages! Contact me if you would like further details.

    Thanks, Polly

    I am looking for people to do mostly gardening and some cleaning/tidying.
    I have an allotment (piece of land for growing food and flowers) about 15 minutes walk from the house. It needs lots of work, sometimes it will be cold and wet, I can help you find warm waterproof clothes, but please bring practical clothes if you can.
    I need people who already know a bit about gardening, (you don't need to be an expert) and a most of the time I won't be with you there so you must either enjoy working alone, or 2 people are welcome!
    When not gardening, cleaning in the house is needed too.

    Private room, I have a double or 2 single mattresses in a private room. The house is not enormous, and needs help making it a lovely home, but I have a washing machine, shower/bath, internet and piano.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There's loads to do in Bristol, art, music, theatre, and a unique culture. I live near a train station to get to other areas of town, and busses just down the road. The local area is great, lovely people and good pubs.

    We'd welcome you to spend some time with our family, if you would like to visit Bristol, improve your English, just meet new people. It's a lovely sociable area, lots of nice pubs/cafes, and Bristol has lots going on.
