  • Description


    Our house is set in the most beautiful part of Hampshire and we have amazing views over the famous Test Valley. We are a family of 5 (and one puppy) and love to welcome people into our home. We are looking for someone to spend time with our children speaking German or French and to help around the house and garden. If you can play the piano or guitar that would be an even bigger bonus!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an active family and we love to welcome people into our home. We have lived in the US and Germany in the past, so we understand the value of meeting people from other cultures. A Workaway would be made to feel extremely welcome!

    We are in the heart of the most beautiful parts of Southern England, full of classic villages and country pubs. There are wonderful paths around here for running, walking and cycling. The Cathedral town of Winchester is 10 minutes away by car. We are also an easy train ride to London or the South Coast. So there is lots to do. Our children all speak German as well as English.

  • Help


    We are a family of five who have recently moved into a new home in the UK. We have three daughters. They speak fluent German (that they need to keep practicing) and they are learning French, so we would love someone to speak to them in German or French. They also love doing creative things and playing games, so any Workaway guest would need to be happy to join in! they are just learning how to play the piano and guitar, so if you play some music that would be amazing.

    We have a big garden with a small woodland area that always needs maintenance and improvement. We are also always looking to do small projects and maintenance around the house.

    This host offers a language exchange
    Our three children all speak German due to having lived in Germany for 2 years. We don't want them to lose their German so we are always looking for good German speakers to live with us and to keep speaking German with them.

  • Accommodation


    We have a very comfortable double room with its own toilet and shower. The room has amazing views over the Test Valley.
