Andy and I have just moved in to our new home in a village close to Wells in Somerset. We live with our 3 grown up children (18, 21 and 23), two dogs and 4 chickens.
We are looking for ideally a couple ( friends or partners) to come for 2 - 4 weeks to help us with the garden and maybe some help around the house.
We have hosted before and really enjoy meeting new people. We would welcome workawayers from abroad or from the UK who would like a change of scene.
We would consider anything from a weeks stay to a couple of months
Help around the house
We are an easy going family and over the years have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and learning about their lives and cultures as well as sharing ours. We enjoy music and socialising and Andy is a keen cook.
We live in an amazing part of the country that is steeped in History and is an area that still remains quite rural. We love sharing our local knowledge.
Our home is modern in design and built using healthy home principles (anti-allergy and low EMF). It is an eco home in the sense that we have air source heating and all of the electricity we use comes from our solar panels.
Our home is now complete (mostly) and it is now our garden that needs attention. We would like to create a space that people want to spend time in and this is why we need your help.
My parents live in the village and are Tai Chi instructors so if you would like to learn in exchange for a bit of gardening at their house I am sure that they would be happy to teach you.
We are looking for people that like being outdoors and don't mind a bit of hard work. The area around our house is still pretty much a building site and we need some help in creating a beautiful garden. Ideally we would like help at the weekends and early on in the week as I work part-time and can be around on those days.
Accommodation will be a room in our house with an en-suite shower room. The room has its own access and will have basic cooking facilities ( microwave, small hob, kettle and toaster)
About half of the meals will be with the family and for the other half we will provide you with the food to cook yourself.
We live in a village with a pub close to the smallest City in England - Wells. We are not far from Glastonbury with it’s Abbey and Tor, Cheddar with its famous Gorge and the Mendip Hills.
Bath and Bristol are not far away if you fancy a bit of city life.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
