  • Help


    We have a simple garden and natural woodland to take care of, and 2 boys (4 & 7), and busy work lives so that we need some extra help with housework such as laundry and cooking. We are sometimes vegan and often paleo, and gluten free. nutrition and awesome food is important to us. We love awesome nutritious food!

    Couples are very welcome. :)

    The most help we need is looking after the house, garden and pets and helping have fun with the boys. Theres plenty of space here in the week for your own freetime and adventures.

    The boys go to school - local steiner - warldorf school. But we need some kid backup - giving them dinner, taking them on an adventure, etc. Otherwise, help in the house - the laundry and the kitchen, or in the garden, mowing the lawn, weeding flower beds, clearing the woods. We have some garden/building/treehouse projects going on, so we like people who are happy to get involved!

    Help would typically mostly include childcare, with some gardening, help in the woods, maybe a dog walk (beautiful!), and help with the housework , tidying and sorting, & cooking. Maybe painting a room? Simon likes practical help in the garden, garage and or building new treehouses if its something you are passionate about.
    We are interested in fun engaging care for the kids; music, nature, activites, sport. There is so much potential and we would love to see our kids having safe fun in your care.

    If you can drive we have a car for you to use, to help with the school runs, shopping and taking the children places, but also good for exploring.

    We have love great nutritious organic wholefood for the whole family.
    We love the offer of help for cooking meals & better family nutrition and we aim for best nutrition for everyone. We love cooking vegetarian mostly - and love it if you like to cook too.

    Prefer applications for around 3-6weeks + for general equilibrium with the family.
    We hope anyone coming here has a responsible attitude, to looking after children and their environment, and also living in a busy young family. We do need lots of help and people who are flexible and hard working. We give a lot in return for you to have a happy experience with good memories and a feeling of living here as part of the family & community.
    The kids are really sweet and good fun. They are rays of sunshine :)
    Thank you.

    Fairly remote but beautiful setting; a family home with a beautiful woodland garden. Truly an inspirational area of Somerset.
