  • Description


    Hi, we are a busy family with 3 children. We live in a pretty small coastal town in South West Scotland. We are able to accommodate 1 person in a double bedroom within our home. We live quite simply and eat well, mostly vegetarian/vegan food. It really is a beautiful place to stay and we are in a 'dark sky' area so the stars at night are amazing. We really just need an extra pair of hands around the place and you will be treated well. We are a friendly bunch!

    We live in a beautiful place, you will be able to grow more confident in speaking English. You can learn about Scottish culture and see what children need to grow and learn.

    We really need an extra pair of hands around the home and garden and some help looking after the children, we would love them to be introduced to a different culture and to pick up some foreign language.

  • Accommodation


    We have a spare double bedroom within our home where you will stay. We can share mealtimes and provide the food as long as you can help us with family chores/garden and childcare. We are also happy if you wish to help with cooking too.

    This is a beautiful and fairly quiet part of Scotland, it has a decent bus service with the nearest train station 25miles away. Our town is coastal and has many artists living and working here. My husband is a creative and I am an ex nurse who stays home just now. We live simply, we don't have pets and don't smoke. We are absolutely family orientated and know the importance of role modelling for the children who are 4, 8, and 10 years. We are easy going but do expect any work to be undertaken at a good standard with a warm heart. You will be able to have time to see round the area or travel to the cities etc. We also have beautiful beaches very close.
