  • Description


    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.
