Hello, we are a family of 4 which includes 2 boys aged 8 & 10. We love being in the Somerset countryside in England. We have an old house with a garden which we struggle to keep on top of. Next to the house we have a 2 bedroom holiday let which is not busy between October and March so is ideal to share with friends and people passing through. Ideally we are hoping a couple or group will want to stay so the space can be effectively used as there are 4 beds. We have so many unfinished projects in the garden, we want to build a new shed, fix the cottage roof, just to name a few things. We also have a very active dog which loves going for walks!
DIY and building projects

Help around the house
We would love to share the joys of living in a beautiful English village, and in particular give full use of our holiday cottage. There is plenty to learn about Somerset life, living with 2 children and a dog.
Shed and cottage - both have leaking roofs which require re-roofing.
House - all wooden window frames will need revarnishing.
Garden - lots of weeding / cutting back and log splitting
Dog - occasional walk
Children may need looking after when we are out on occasion
General house cleaning and maintenance support is a bonus.
