We're a friendly family, made up of myself and two children who love meeting new people. We live in a quaint stone cottage in the rolling hills of mid Wales, where we have recently moved for a change of lifestyle. We have a good size garden and we'll slowly be working to update the cottage. I have big plans for the garden and will be introducing a few chickens and a fruit and veg patch soon. We have a cat and a puppy! We're a busy family. I work full time as an international environmental specialist and my children go to a lovely school full time and like to socialise with friends and pursue hobbies. We live around 2.5 miles from the nearest shop and village, but we're not remote, with friendly neighbours around us. We have a good sized town within 5 miles and are about 1hr from the beach - which we are trying to visit once a month. We have space for a small campervan on our drive, for those without a van, we're hoping to get a glamping type pod or cabin soon, or if we havent arranged that yet, accommodation would be a large single room in our house. We've had people stay with us before, including au pairs and volunteers and have enjoyed sharing our lives. You'd be warmly welcomed and invited to go places with us and explore. I have a bike that can be used for exploring too. We're an environmentally conscious family that likes to grow, cook and eat and there's a great selection of lovely fresh quality food where we are. We try to live in an environmentally friendly way too. I'm very interested in plants, gardening and sustainable food. You'd be welcome to join family meals.
