    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love to hear from other travellers and learn about their countries at the same time sharing information about our own. We try to help people to see places of interest in the area. There is a local pub which is always very popular as there is a varied clientele who go there; families, young and old all enjoy the company.
    There is always much discussion going on and we like to encourage our visitors to join in and are willing to help with learning english in any way we can. English is spoken in common areas - couples and friends are discouraged from speaking in their own language unless in their own room!

  • Help


    We are hosts and have been for more than ten years. During this time the help has mainly been gardening and outdoor construction. Although this is ongoing we are now tackling the house and need help with additional skills in building and decorating.

    What else ...

    We are on a bus route between Wincanton and Street/Glastonbury. There are lots of places to walk in the area and we have bicycles available if required. We do not have TV but have a large collection of DVDs. You will be part of a family and most of the volunteers who come here end up staying longer than they intended.
