Hello, we are a family of 4 living on a mixed farm in Leicestershire. We are a close family with both children grown up. With all farmhouses the kitchen is always full of visitors and the kettle always on, so plenty of different people to talk to. We have had many exchange students and friends made through horse riding come to stay with us over the years from New Zealand, Sweden, Italy, America and France. We enjoy hosting and learning from the people who come to stay as well as aiding them in their goals.
We are 5 miles from Leicester city centre where you will find the King Power Stadium home to Leicester City Football Club, the Leicester Tigers. The National Space Centre, The Richard III exhibition and much more.

Help in the house
Leicester was previously named Britain's City of Culture. We are lucky enough to live rurally but still in close proximity to good transport links and the city.
We would like help within the farmhouse, including cleaning and cooking occasionally. We also have a large garden and orchard to maintain if outdoors is more your thing. We also have a small farm, with cows and poultry that an extra pair of hands is always needed.
We have several horses that need general care as well as getting fit for the coming season so the opportunity to ride may be available to confident workawayers.
We have a double bedroom or a twin bedroom available. We live in an old farmhouse so central heating is not available in every room and you could find the odd spider. There are 3 communal bathrooms with showers.
There is plenty to see and do in the Midlands and nothing is too far away ! However if you fancy a trip to the capital, London is only 1 hour train ride away.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
