  • Description


    We have a wild garden, organic vegetable garden and sculpture park. There is plenty of out door work during the summer, help needed around the house and with the kids.
    We have three lovely children of 12, 10 and nearly 2, four little dogs and two friendly cats.

    My husband and I are both artist who work from home where we have separate studios, in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. Although we live surrounded by fields and trees, our local town, Stroud is just two miles down the hill and is very friendly and has everything you need, including a train station that goes to London Paddington in one hour and a half. Our home is very friendly and there are always plenty of nice people around!

  • Help


    We are looking for workawayers who are good fun and like to be flexible with what they do. We need help with gardening/vegetable gardening, management in the sculpture park, child care and cooking.

    Gardening would include picking fruit, weeding and tending vegetables alongside our gardener. Our children love to learn new languages and play piano and guitar. They also love to swim, we have a swimming pool here in the garden. We would like people who love food and to cook like we do!

    Helping with the animals would include feeding them and occasionally washing the small dogs.
