  • Description


    I'm a storyteller and folk singer and also a support worker in the mental health sector. I am studying to practice psychotherapy.

    You will be staying in my beautiful self-converted bus. I have 4 children, aged 5-16.

    When we are not travelling we have a lovely stone cottage near Glastonbury in Somerset. Its an area of significant historical interest and beauty and a peaceful place to stay.

    I am looking for help over school holidays with childcare while I work.

    I would also like to find someone to come to Glastonbury festival where I work. You will be doing childcare.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a beautiful, secluded spot in a tiny Somerset village. Bristol and Bath are easily accessible band Castle Cary train station is nearby.

    We are vegan

    I only usually work a few hours in a day and all I need is babysitting while I'm out.

    Singles, couples and families are equally welcome.

    I like time to myself in the evening and early nights and it is important that you are self contained and happy to be in your own space. I have a very busy time and study to do so we won't be living on top of each other.
