  • Description

    Description

    We are a busy couple living in the village of Willingham 8 miles from the University City of Cambridge. Cambridge is a 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.

    We live in a rambling 14 century farmhouse with a large beautiful garden. We have many apple, pear and plum trees which are harvested in the autumn.

    We both work locally (Monday -Friday). We are a friendly sociable couple who would welcome a FEMALE into our home to help us. We are interested in improving our foreign language skills and would be happy to help improve the visitor's English language skills.

    We 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.

    Help is required to clean and maintain the house. Some assistance with meal preparation and cooking would be appreciated. We would like help in the garden in collaboration with our gardener and myself.
