  • Description


    We are a family of 3 and 1 cat. We are living in a beautiful part of Devon, at the edge of fields and stunning views but very close to Totnes, one of the most alternative towns in the UK. We are involved in holistic work with families, from pregnancy onwards, running a small computer business and offering accommodation (mostly in the summer).

    We have two types of exchange available:
    • In exchange for 20 hours help a week we offer comfortable accommodation in a clean and warm 16ft caravan, breakfast and a nourishing meal (mostly organic) 5 days a week.
    At weekends, we like to spend time as a family and can provide you with what you need to cook for yourself.
    • Or you can choose less help (15 hours a week), eat with us a couple of times a week and provide food for yourself for the rest of the time.

    We are quite flexible and wanting a situation that feels good for everyone involved.

    We have a holistic approach to life and would prefer like-minded people to share our time and space with.
    We speak English and French fluently.
