  • Description


    Hi there, we live in the Somerset market town on Frome. Our home is a hidden gem in the centre of town near the train station, with 3/4 acre of land and the river running alongside the garden. We have lots of space in the house, with a lovely spare room. We have 2 children, a girl aged 11 and a boy aged 15, a cat and 5 chickens. We really enjoy our cooking and family meals, the kids love to hang out, play games, jump on the trampoline and play football! Dave and I have travelled a lot as a couple and also when we can with the children. We enjoy sharing as many experiences as we can with our children, and to help them appreciate people and different cultures and opinions.

    We are open-minded people who have travelled a lot and experienced different cultures ourselves. We invite you to spend some time with our family, to experience Frome and the beautiful Somerset countryside. Frome has a lot of music and events going on, with a theatre and cinema.

    We mainly need help with gardening and outdoor jobs - managing the space, weeding pruning the fruit trees and developing our vegetable growing. We'd love to build a sauna and a compost loo so if you have those skills that would be excellent!
    There is some additional help needs with occasional cleaning and looking after the house.
