  • Description


    We are a big family based in Somerset, south west England. We would like someone who loves the countryside and to help with our children. We have 5 children and two of those are foster children. My partner Mike also has a little girl that lives with us. We are looking for someone to help with our children and we would love to show our culture and help with any English! We run and dog hotel so anyone looking to stay with us would need to like and be good with both children and dogs and are also always looking for help with the dog hotel. We could also teach you a lot about how to read dog behaviour and run a business. We live in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Please feel free to ask me any questions. Thank you for looking Becky and Mike xxx

An experience with a big family and any knowledge in relation to dogs and small business.
