  • Description

    Description

    My husband and I live in a nice old cottage with a big park-like garden, which is a big project for us to take care of alone. Therefore we are looking for some help with this. We have two small ponds surrounded by flowers and nice leafy plants, and there is always lots to be done with getting rid of weeds and slugs and mowing the lawns and such.
    The area is super quiet and beautiful and close to nature and wildlife.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an open family and we would love to share life with our guests. I am Danish myself and my husband is born in Northern Ireland, but he has also lived many years in Australia and the USA.
    I don't work anymore, so I look forward to be working on the projects together with my guests.

    We have an extra room in the cottage that we live in with a big double bed and an extra couch. We will eat our meals together.

    What else ...

    The house is located 10 km from Vejle and 2 km from Børkop, but there is 1 km gravel road to the bus stop, so you would have to be prepared to be in a very secluded, but beautiful area.
