    Description

    My family, David and myself Susan, sing for the elderly/adults with learning difficulties, we also do home boarding for dogs. We live in North Yorkshire in the countryside. I have 3 son's Adam (28) who is a pianist, choirmaster and director, Elliot (21) who is an actor, singer and dancer and Oliver (20) who is studying Animal Management. Only one of my son's lives at home, Oliver. We have a lovely guest bungalow that you can use, plus a hot tub. We live in a beautiful part of the UK, in between the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales and are central for the towns of Richmond, Northallerton and Darlington. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 4 chickens that produce lovely eggs. We are a very musical family, with lots of musical instruments, we also like to perform on stage.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I always feel that visitors head straight for London, the UK has so much to offer further north. We are friendly people with lots of interesting places to visit and learn about English people. Historical Richmond is the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, it has a castle and sits on the River Swale. Visit the oldest working theatre in the UK, The Georgian Theatre Royal, take afternoon tea in one of the many tea rooms, or just walk round the cobbled market place, say hello to the locals, they will be keen to pass the time of day with you.

    We are looking for someone to help with fencing our large garden and clear out some scrub land behind our bungalow, painting the new/old fence and laying some paving slabs and a general tidy up of the grounds. Some dogs walking, cleaning out the chickens, feeding the animals. Maybe a little help in the house with dusting, hovering, bathrooms, cooking. Approximately Up to 5 hours help, 5 days a week in exchange for food & accommodation.

    What else ...

    A walk will take you to a good bus service 20 minutes into the market town of Richmond with its cobbled streets and Castle or in 20 minutes to the quaker town of Darlington. Darlington is on the main railway line, from here you can get a train to just about anywhere. Maybe you would prefer to just relax in the hot tub with beautiful far reaching countryside views.
