We are located in idyllic Shropshire countryside, and so you’ll get to know what rural England really has to offer. There are lots of historic castles and sites dotted around, as well as being a short drive or bus ride from Shrewsbury, a beautiful town with lots of quirky boutiques and restaurants.
My daughter is getting married in our back garden and we need some extra hands to get the garden looking fab! We live in the wonderful Shropshire countryside, with fantastic public footpaths and spectacular scenery.
We are a British family and so anyone looking to advance their English skills or learn more about English culture (we’ve got much more than tea and scones!) would really benefit from staying with us. Also, we can provide you with a bicycle if you fancy exploring some of the nearby towns or villages.
The help required will consist of mowing the grass, planting shrubs and plants, moving tree branches, de-weeding, laying bark paths etc. We may also need some help with jet washing, trimming the hedges and cleaning up some outbuildings. There may be some heavy lifting involved.
We have a summer house that can sleep two people with electricity, access to water and a fridge. We will also provide a portable toilet. We would provide you with breakfast, lunch and dinner during your stay. We can also provide you with a bicycle if you would like.
We’re a very easy going family, and we only request that you’re respectful to our wonderful home whilst you stay. We also love learning about other cultures and languages.
