  • Description

    Description

    I am a busy woman living in the village of Willingham 8 miles from the University City of Cambridge. Cambridge is an internationally renowned city with good links to London (50 min by train) and close to London Stansted Airport (45 min by car). The village is well served by public transport to Cambridge.

    I Live in a rambling 14 century farmhouse with a large beautiful garden. I have many apple, pear and plum trees I am a friendly sociable person who would welcome a FEMALE into my home to help me.I am interested in improving my foreign language skills and would be happy to help improve the visitor's English language skills.

    I have two large friendly dogs so experience in caring for dogs is important as walking them and generally helping to care for them will be required.
    A MINIMUM STAY OF 3 WEEKS REQUIRED PLEASE.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My guest would benefit by staying with us in many ways: They will experience typical English family life and so will get a better understanding of the English way of life. They will be able to improve their English Language skills. As I live in beautiful East Anglia, there are opportunities to visit Cambridge, Ely and London.

    Help

    Help is required to clean and maintain the house. Assistance with meal preparation and cooking would be appreciated so it would be good if you enjoy cooking. I would like help in the garden in collaboration with my gardener and myself. I need someone who is conscientious, able to work unsupervised once shown the tasks , and able to wake up in the morning to start promptly!

    The role would suit a practical down to earth person who would not be afraid to get their hands dirty.
