We are a friendly family of 5 living in a small village in the beautiful county of Rutland and we are looking for an extra pair of hands to help us out around our home.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
We can offer you a cultural exchange with a British family based in the countryside in the middle of England. We would like you to not just come to help us but to truly become part of the family.
We are happy for you to have your weekends off to be able to explore the area and travel around to explore everything England has to offer. We are keen to help you improve your English language skills as much as we can with the possibility of attending a language course once per week in our local town.
We are a fun-loving and friendly family of five - Lucie (mum), Will (dad) and three boys aged 7 (Harry), 4 (George) and 1 (Hugo). We also have 2 large labradoodle dogs.
We are looking for a female workawayer who is reliable and responsible to help out primarily with childcare before and after school, some help with housekeeping and walking the dogs. We would ideally like to find someone who has previous experience working with children.
Typical tasks would include: helping out at bath time/bedtime, playing with the children (they love being outdoors but also doing craft and baking), cooking, helping with homework, tidying up after mealtimes, babysitting once per week).
English, (conversational German & French)
Attached to our house, you will have your own small studio/annexe with king size bed, shower room, kitchenette, tv and wifi.
We live in a small village right next to Rutland Water Nature Reserve which is great for walking, running, cycling and water sports. Our closest town is Stamford which has been consistently voted one of the top places to live in UK – it has a thriving Friday market, Corn exchange, Arts Centre and over 600 listed buildings.
There is a limited bus service from our village to our closest towns, Stamford and Oakham. From Oakham there is a good train service to Leicester and Birmingham and from Stamford to Peterborough and Cambridge or to the North of England and London (via Peterborough). We are usually happy to take you to the train station if we can coordinate it with our plans.
