  • Description


    We are a couple with three grown children ( who have left the nest) a dog and chickens!
    We live in a lovely spot of South East England and reside upon beautiful land that has ancient Sequoiadendrons and other indigenous shrubs and trees on two acres. Our home was once that of a Saxon King!

    We are happy to exchange your stay with a beautiful secluded space to stay, we can offer you language practice, a great place to practice your cookings skills and learn about the local history and culture here as part of this cultural exchange.

    We work hard, and enjoy life.
    My husband works in the building trade my work is very creative. I teach artistic classes and run a body painting show!

    We would welcome some general gardening, help on the land, cleaning and cooking too. There's never enough hours in the day! if you can offer any technical computer help and perhaps some video editing (not essential) as well that's a bonus.

    If you love yoga cooking, art and creative stuff, with the above skill sets you'd also be extra perfect! Non smokers please.

    We like having couples or pairs of travellers as we find that gives all the best experience.
    We are keen to speak with potential workaway couples that are already in the Uk due to the current situation and you would be required to come with a negative COvid 19 test.

    We are close to London and the South coast links by train close by, we also have bikes you can use.
    It's a great spot, we love it! .

    We like to Skype before we commit for both parties benefit.

    Thank you and we look forward to hosting you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are quite home based generally, but sometimes work longer hours. Its quite a creative household although football features quite heavily on occasions! We are open to sharing cooking and eating food. If we are free any nights we sometimes will take our work awayers on local trips if they are keen, but also happy if you'd like to do your own thing.
    We are very flexible with most things but expect a good commitment and relative care and consideration from our Workawayers. Please only apply if you have the initial skills listed so as not to waste time for all of us
