We are a home educating family of five (children aged 6, 4 and 1), living near the boarder of the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean and Herefordshire. We are warm and welcoming and enjoy a full house, with family coming and going all the time. Enjoying being with children is a must, with three of them around there is always someone to play with, create art, dance, baking, colouring in etc. My husband also works from home (as a music engineer/producer) and I work one day a week in Bristol, so we are always around. We love good food, socialising, music, exploring and being outdoors. Some days are quiet and gentle and some days we are very busy, out and about socialising and exploring. There is a lot to do around the house and in the garden and we could do with someone with a proactive approach.
Babysitting / child care

With three small children there is plenty to be done around the house and always cooking and cleaning. We would love some one to be able to proactively help out. and must be enjoy being with young children

In your spare time there is lots to do and see in the area. We are on a bus route to the historic market town of Ross on Wye which is beautiful and of course the forest of dean where there are lots of outdoor pursuits for you to do, canoeing, mountain biking, walking, climbing ect.
