  • Description


    We're a family with two daughters age 4 and 7. We live in a beautiful part of Devon with many lovely walks and nature spots. Our daughters our home educated and love having people around to play with. We eat healthy, mainly vegetarian, organic food. We have recently arrived in our new home and so have a lot to do - decorating, gardening, putting up shelves and such like and playing with and looking after our children.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an open minded, loving family who bring up our children in a natural, earth-based way. We don't have a television, we home educate and we eat healthy, organic food. Guests will learn how to make scrumptious, healthy food, organic gardening, aspects of design as we are constantly redesigning our living spaces and learn what life is like within a family with two sparkly children!

  • Help


    We ask for five hours help a day, 5 days a week from our workaways. Usually the help is in the mornings between 9 and 1 and then another hour later in the day to help with the children or with clearing up while I do bedtime with the girls. This isn't set though - sometimes there might be some babysitting in the evening or an afternoon trip out to the park with the kids. It'll never be more than 5 hours a day though and sometimes might be less.

    The hours are usually either diy stuff like painting or woodworking (if reasonably experienced), housework like washing up, hoovering, tidying, laundry, gardening work or hanging out with the kids. The kids love stories, trips to the park, cooking, craft - basically anything engaging (not tv!). I try to find out what you're into - that way it's more satisfying for everyone.

    I'm always really grateful to have help with family meals. We eat healthy, organic, whole food - mainly vegetarian. Happy to eat vegan too. Enthusiastic cooks always welcome :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live ten minutes away from the town of tones in Devon. We're surrounded by luscious rolling english countryside; lanes and cows a plenty. Lots of beautiful walks and trees to sit under. Dartington estate with is beautiful arboretum, river and cafes is within walking distance and there is a cycle path that runs all the way into totnes town.

    We don't like to have a lot of screens in our living space so we'd ask that internet usage is kept to the spare bedroom.
