  • 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 love to welcome people into our home. We are looking for someone to help in the garden and around the house. We would also love someone to spend time with our children speaking German or French.

    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 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.

    Finally, 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 to them. They also love doing creative things and playing games, so any Workaway guest would need to be happy to join in!
