We live on the edge of the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean, in Gloucestershire. We have a small holding with views over the river Severn and towards the Cotswold escarpment. There are 6 of us! My husband Matt, children Louise 15, Zoe 13, Amber 10, Angus 8 and myself Esther. We spend quite a lot of time outside with hens, ducks and cats. We also have 4 and a half acres with a large veg garden and many fruit trees. We love to travel and have all been to India 4 years ago. Music and languages also play a part in family life.
We have hosted several workaways and have really enjoyed the experience and exchange of cultures. We don't have set hours , instead we would like you to help out with everyday life and to join in with what we're doing.

I hope that you will feel encouraged to improve your English, help the older two children with their languages, French, Spanish & (Welsh) have an opportunity to play your instrument, if you have one, and freedom to explore the local area by bike or local transport. My husband is self employed as a building tradesman and I teach & practice Pilates.
We are looking for help pruning fruit trees, cutting hedges and clearing the gardes for Spring, and continued on going outdoor projects. I would also like help sharing the cooking too. If you have experience using, strimmers, chainsaws, mowers and driving tractors that would be very helpful.
We have a converted attic with double bed toilet & bath so you can be self contained at the top of the house but we would need access to it on occasion. Meals would be with the family and I hope that you could prepare and cook some of them. If you have your own van/transport there is plenty of space to park.
With time off you could walk or use one of our bikes to explore The Forest of Dean. We live on a main bus route with very good access to other bus routes & trains for exploring further. Gloucester, Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London have fast easy trains to use.
