  • 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 ponies. We are looking for an individual to help out generally with gardening, maintenance, hedge planting and some help in the house decorating when too wet outside. 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 1-3 weeks, we are flexible and would like 5 hours help a day in return for board and lodging.
    I am a part time English Teaching assistant and look after the home and the children. 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.

    We really need help with general maintenance, gardening, hedge planting and house help decorating. Some projects outside with Tom like making a fence, planting a hedge or some trees. Need to be practical and adaptable.

    What else ...

    Buses can be caught from the village nearby to Petersfield. Trains to London are great from Petersfield. We are looking for a couple who can fit in with our family life and generally help out with so many things we never seem to get time to do and need doing and helping with our bed and breakfast guests. Enjoy being in the English Countryside.
    Beautiful walking on the South Downs Way and from our house. Amazing views.
