  • Description


    I am a child minder and my husband works in the merchant Navy and spends many months away from home. We have a 4 year old daughter, a little 7 year old son and an 10 year old son. The project is not too taxing and would not require that many specific skills. Anyone who is hard working and has some vision would be suitable.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are close to the historic town of Bath and not too far away from Bristol either. We live on the edge of the country side and am close to most local amenities including cycle paths from which you can explore the surrounding areas.
    Both my husband and myself are South African born so you could learn about 2 different cultures in one go. We are fully bilingual and can help with making our guest more confident in speaking English or learn a little Afrikaans if they were up for it!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are about 10 min walk from the local shops and park. There are also bus links to most areas which is easy to get to. We have 3 fun loving and sociable children who love the outdoors. As both my husband and myself work full time, we don't have as much time to do all the work as we would like.
