  • Description


    Fun family of 5, with 2 dogs, 2 cats & chickens living in large rural house with 6 acres & tennis court near the historic town of Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, UK looking for a couple to help out with mainly outdoor / garden tasks. The children are at school & I am out a lot so we would only see you mornings & evenings so if you really want to improve your English it might not be the best job!

    We live in the beautiful English countryside. Our village has a pub & a cafe. We are 3 miles from the historical town of Bury St Edmunds. We are also close to Newmarket which is the headquarters of British horse racing with 2 race courses. We are 30 miles from the stunning city of Cambridge with its world famous university. London is 1.5hrs a way by train.

  • Help


    Ideally we are looking for a couple. The main job we require help with is painting our perimeter fence, outside windows, & gardening. Depending on skills we also need a new chicken run built. The children are aged 7,9 & 11 again not a necessity but any help with maths would be great!
    We are non smokers & would like non smokers

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are a relaxed but very busy family. We like the children outside rather than watching tv & if they are not at school would like to get them involved with what you are doing.
    We like to have friends & family round for supper. We are all sporty so anyone that enjoys tennis, cricket, football, horses would be a bonus!
