  • Description


    I am a single mother. I have two kids. Age 17 and 13,both boys. My 17 year old will go back to boarding school in September, and will be home at the weekends. My 13 year old will stay with his father in Brighton whilst I have chemo, however will visit at the weekend . I would need you to be able to drive an automatic car. I have a Nissan xtrail. We would pick kids up and go shopping together. I live at the entrance to Ashdown Forest. Winnie the Poos world Hartfield is 10 minutes down the Rd. If you love walking you will be in heaven.
    We live 10 minutes away from a village called Forest Row which is alternative. The village thrives around the Steiner School with a biodynamic farm and organic mini Market.

    I need someone over 25 with a clean licence, so I can insure you on my car. The closest station is Crowborough (20 mins.away). You can get a train to London Bridge from there and takes 1hr 15 mins. This is where the Shard is and also the Tate modern. There are buses to Brighton from Nutley, however, you will be able to use my car.
    We are within walking distance of the village Nutley. Here there are two mini markets and a pizzaria.
