  • Description


    We are a busy family in West Sussex overlooking the beautiful South Downs. We have two children 11 years and 10 years, a dog, and two ponies. We are looking for an individual to help out generally with our ponies, gardening, housework and general maintenance, around the home and garden. We live in a beautiful place with fields and a lovely garden. We are 4 miles from two little towns and you can catch a bus to Petersfield which is a really lovely town. We need help for between 2 - 4weeks, we are flexible and would like 4-5 hours help a day in return for board and lodging.
    I work part time and look after the home and the children whilst also having some bed and breakfast guests. My husband has a building renovation company in London and has an office here. Our children are at school all day.
    We can offer a wonderful English experience and a memorable experience of life with an English family with lots of laughter in a lovely place.

    We also have granny living in a little annexe attached to our house and she needs help sometimes, jobs like filling her log basket or a little shopping.

    Occasional child sitting on the odd evening we go out. Sometimes chatting to granny over a coffee and hearing her life stories.

    We need someone experienced with horses to ride our 14.2 hh pony and general horse management
