  • Description


    Short stay only. In April 2022 I will need help with emptying the kitchen ready for a complete refit and a big clean up afterwards.
    Downstairs furniture will need moving. Carpets will need to be covered and curtains taken down.
    I have a table top oven and hob plus a microwave so cooking is not a problem.

    I have travelled extensively and volunteered in several countries so understand the Workaway ethic. I am happy to share my home with a visitor to UK who needs a clean and tidy place to stay in exchange and wants to stay in a family home rather than a hostel. This is a quiet place which needs to be respected but I enjoy music of all kinds. There is no TV

    i have a bad back so I require help boxing and moving all kitchen items, moving furniture to accommodate boxes. If you can cook that is an added bonus. The cottage will need a good deep clean after the work in the kitchen is complete.

  • Accommodation


    My home is part of a converted stable block in the grounds of a Georgian house in the beautiful county of Wiltshire. The city of Bath is a 10 minute train ride away while you can be in London in just over an hour. It is very quiet and peaceful here. The town is only a 5 minute walk away through a beautiful park with a river running through it and a 5 minute walk to the railway station. You would have your own room, shared bathroom, kitchen and living space. There is internet in the house. There is private, off road parking if required. Breakfast and evening meal will be provided, you may have to cook for yourself occasionally.

    What else ...

    I live close to the historical city of Bath, an easy train or bus ride. There are so many places of interest within striking distance of my home; Stonehenge and Avebury, White Horses of Wiltshire, Cotswolds, Salisbury. There are rail and bus links within walking distance.
    There is no TV! Just music of all genres.
