  • Description


    Large farm 10mins from Cambridge. We travelled the world before settling down with our family of 2 boys. We have all sorts of work here, working with farm animals, painting fences or water-blasting. You will experience real country life while living just 10mins from town. We have an Au Pair as well who has full use of a car and enjoys to travel with visitors in her weekends off.
