    Description

    Hello! We are particularly interested in Spanish speakers as both my children need to practice their spanish!

    We are looking for some immediate help around the home and garden, experience with general DIY, painting, cleaning and gardening is an advantage.

    We have a lovely tucked-away home and garden, just minutes walk into the centre of town, which I share with my two children who are here half the time and also a partner who is here some of the time!

    I work from home some of the time: I'm a psychotherapist and also facilitate groups and run workshops in conscious collaboration, I also teach mindfulness meditation in schools. I work from a garden office so need workaways to be sensitive around my work schedule.

    I'm very well travelled, I spent a year living in Spain in my 20's and then went on to live and travel in Asia for 7 years. I really enjoy meeting people from other cultures.

    We are a big blended family of 5. We have a 14 year old and 12 year old and 11 year old between myself and my husband. We are a pretty happy and relaxed household. Both my children are Steiner educated and we veer towards a pretty natural/organic lifestyle! We also have a very very friendly cat & 6 rescue chickens!

    Bruton is a really great little town, there are good train links to Bristol, Bath and London. There are great cafes, pubs and beautiful wide open spaces, and an international art gallery/bar (Hauser & Wirth) which has really put Bruton on the map! Bruton is a gem (now voted best town to live in the UK! and recently featured in NY Times and vogue..but we don't let it go to our heads!) It's fantastic and diverse little town community, set in the midst of beautiful west-country countryside!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Bruton is such vibrant little town, we have a fantastic international art gallery and beautiful countryside. There is so much to explore locally and ways to discover ancient Britain!

    We will welcome the right workaways and hopefully make a lasting friendship (last years workdays have become firm friends! They'll be a hard act to follow!) We can offer you interesting discussion and a taste of an alternative british lifestyle!

We like to spend some time getting to know our workaways and helping with English practice, sharing meals etc but also prefer people who are fairly independent and happy to entertain themselves some of the time during their free time.
