  • Description


    We live on a small farm in a glorious pocket of rural Shropshire surrounded by farmland. We have a few sheep on a few acres of land and horse livery. We would be happy to have one or two visitors. There is a small comfortable room in the house with a shared bathroom with our 2 children.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a busy family with lots going on and we would like to involve you in every aspect. Hopefully you will get an insight into English family life in the countryside.

    Main duties will be household and in the garden plus walking our two dogs each day. It is also really helpful to us if you are outgoing and like children/teenagers! as getting on and hanging out with our two children aged 14 and 12 is an important part of the cultural exchange. They can provide hours of English practice if need be. A huge advantage would be helping our 12 year old daughter with her French as she has an important exam in June.

    We would also need you to look after the dogs if we are out for the day.

    We have a bedroom upstairs with shared bathroom with the children or if you would like a bit more privacy we could put our bell tent up in the garden with a decent mattress for you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a lot to do in the area, although it is countryside we are only 3 miles away from Ironbridge, considered the birthplace of Industry and a Unesco World Heritage site. Cosford Air Museum is also a few miles away. Telford is also very close, a modern town with facilities such as ice skating, cinemas, bowling and shops. Shrewsbury is also worth a visit. We have a bike which you can borrow, but otherwise you would be dependent on us or taxis as there is no public transport. We are happy to drop you off ad pick you up locally if we can. We can drop you off at a train station if you want to go and explore at weekends.
    Generally I prefer that the work is done in the mornings and then you are free, it an be quite isolating as you will have a lot of time by yourself during the afternoons particularly when the children are at school.
