  • Description


    Living near to Glastonbury, in the stunning area of South Cadbury. We have four dogs, three cats, a horse and live less than a five minute walk from Cadbury Castle of King Arthur fame.
    There's never a dull moment in our household, you really have to be a dog lover if you would like to stay!

    We previously lived in France and have been using sites like Workaway for over 15 years. We are English but speak French too, so if it's of interest to you to learn a new language then we are most happy to change our language. I cook a LOT for work, with influences from the Middle East and mainland Europe so if you are keen to enhance your knowledge in the kitchen, or learn how to make wines and cider I'm most happy to share this with you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You're most welcome to hang out with me in the kitchen to learn an array of cuisine, learn to practise your English if you are from overseas, or French if you are looking to improve this.
    Being in the shadows of Cadbury Castle, there's a great deal of history that we (as new comers to the village) are keen to understand and share, we have an ongoing project with English Heritage to improve the villages mini-museum, so if you enjoy research (specifically of old hill forts) we could do with a hand in down time to further research and compile information to go on the museums boards.
    Further we are collectors of Antique Glass and kitchenalia and can teach you how to identify and age glasses many of which date back to the 1800's.
    Alternatively, if you're just looking to be based in an amazing location and explore Somerset, wander through endless fields and hills with our dogs stepping off the tread mill and back in time then this is the place to stop, breathe and enjoy a relatively unspoilt area of the UK.

  • Help


    The most important role currently is care of our dogs, walking them, playing and helping to settle them into our new house when we are working.
    We have just moved in and have a number of projects on the go, gardening, painting, decorating, cleaning, dog and cat care, dog walking, horse care etc. There is plenty to keep us all busy, but also plenty of time and space for you to escape and relax and explore the area.
