  • Beschreibung


    We are a family of 4, James, Francesca and 2 teenage children, Freddie and Bea and are black labrador Berry. We live in a beautiful part of Dorset 40 minutes from the sea and surrounded by rolling hills and pretty market towns and within easy reach of major towns, Bristol, Bath, Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole and Salisbury. We have lived here 13 years and love it! We are into running, cooking, cycling, art, photography and all the other activities that come with teenage children!

    We have had international students staying with us on and off for years so have had many cultures and nationalities through our door which has benefited our children. Both children are studying Spanish and French so this would benefit both ways! We live in a very sociable village and there is a good open community feel which would benefit an exchange.

    We are looking for help in our garden 3/4 of an acre which is beautiful and a work in progress but we have little time for gardening and love to get it back to how it used to look! We need brambles chopping back, small trees cutting back, levelling of the ground etc.

    We also need help with painting a few rooms in the house and general maintenance and would love someone who is interested in doing a bathroom re-fit!

    We also have a lovely dog that needs walking occasionally and some general cleaning in the house. Maybe occasional healthy cooking.

    I am a very keen experimental cook and will be providing delicious ingredients to cook from. We have an organic farm shop 2 minutes away where you can get the best produce in Dorset, no joke!

  • Unterkunft


    Twin room with 2 single beds or a double bedroom with large double bed, both with bathroom or shower room separate to ours.

    We have a huge kitchen with 2 separate cookers and 2 fridges so easy to prepare food on mass. We (I!) do however like tidy guests!

    The village is well connected with bus routes and there is a train station at Gillingham, 15 minutes away. There are 3 local towns, Sturminster Newton (3 miles), Shaftesbury (10) and Blandford (5) all of which have large supermarkets and weekly markets. We also have a lovely Organic Farm shop and Cafe and great village shop, 2 pubs. There are great biking routes along a safe trailway to Blandford Forum and Sturminster Newton. I outlined above the major towns within the hour. We also have our own village taxi service.
