  • Description


    Russ and I (Michelle) run a business where we manage events/shows and help other companies promote.
    We live in a beautiful town called Frome, not far from Bath with transport links. We are a very relaxed and easy to get on with. I have three children aged 11, 9 and 7. Russ has older children, but they are not living with us.
    We have not had anyone for the last year, but have just updated our profile to accept someone.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The history of the town is beautiful and many local tourist attractions and transport links. We can take you places, or if you can drive, you can use one of our cars.

    We can help with language and we love to learn new things too. We would love to learn Spanish or Italian or both! Happy to set aside an hour or so a day for you in the evening to help with language.

    We are very hands on people and always creating something for a show as we sculpt and make costumes ourselves.

    If we have any events on during your stay you can come and experience them. They are usually at weekends.

  • Help


    Looking for someone to volunteer to help around the house and to look after our animals and take the dogs for walks. Must be an animal lover and be available between 12th August - 2nd September, but can stay longer.

    There may be occasional evening babysitting, but the main help is to help with our 3 beagles and a cat.

    We like to make people feel part of our family and we hope that we stay friends afterwards.

    It is important to us that you are happy and comfortable and enjoy your stay with us. We have many connections throughout the town and if you need or want anything we can offer advice.

    We live in a four storey Victorian town house in the centre of Frome, a few minutes walk to shops and bus routes. The train station is a 10 minute walk.

    We can provide a comfortable room in the family home.

    We provide food/ sometimes cooked meals and you can help yourself to what you want, but not suitable for vegetarians. We are meat eaters.
