Note: We can accomodate 2 workaways at the same time.
We always have short term availability for single skilled workaway to help us with projects in and outside the house, such as gardening, building sheds, painting the kitchen, etc. We have always something going on, so if you are looking for 2-3 weeks stay in the English country side not far from London, please get in touch to see how we can help each other.
We need help with childcare during weekdays, the hours are set and will leave plenty of opportunities for you to explore the area or take english lessons if you wish. We are looking for someone experienced with childcare, especially toddlers.
You must love children and animals.
We are family of 4 living in a small village called Forest row, East Sussex. Located 20 minutes from London Gatwick, 40 minutes from London Victoria and 40 minutes from Brighton. Our house is good size, 4 bedroom detached property in the heart of the Ashdown Forest which is famous for Hundred acre woods (where Winnie the Pooh comes from). We share our land with British wildlife, deer and foxes are our daily visitors and the owls sings to us every night. Our house backs onto golf course and provides lots of opportunities for walks and being in the nature.
We need someone who genuinely loves children, someone who is clean and tidy, patient and kind, and animal lover as we have very friendly dog, 4 cats and 4 ducks.
We keep our house in tip top condition, so we need someone super tidy, who can appreciate that clean home is very important to us. We dont wear shoes inside our home.
We dont accept smokers!

Help around the house
We will welcome you as we would a family member and treat you as such. We can show you all that our amazing countryside has to offer, starting with walks in the country as we live in the forest, through to the delights of our kitchen (Italian and Asian influence!) We would be happy for you to share your recipes with us if you wish, as we are keen to explore all world cuisine on offer.
Our requirement for workaways is quite flexible. We need help with childcare as a number one priority and there is always something else going on in and around the house and garden that we need help with. So we can accommodate couple or a single person, we have no preference other than childcare experience and if couple, we need someone who can help with DYI or gardening jobs.
This year we plan to build a huge adventure playground at the rear of our garden, put up a big sail to shade our BBQ/entertainment area, build a small fence, erect a shed, build a greenhouse and get us started with growing our own vegetables and fruit.
