  • Description


    We are a small family residing in South Somerset UK.
    We like to be busy and we have many interests and will like to include our workaway person to join in with us.
    Our daughter is 3 and a half and like most children is into everything!!
    The local village here offers food shops ,public house, post office, tea rooms and is all with a short walk away (10)mins.
    For people who enjoy walking there are many many walks in the countryside.
    Our interests range from gardening, motorsport, keep fit and car boot sales!! (like French Brocants/vide Greniers).
    I work p/time with elderly people too.
    We enjoy being outside when weather permits or visiting places of interest, like National Trust Houses/Gardens.
    Our house is comfortable and offers our workaway a clean bedroom, we have 2 bathrooms 1 of which can be used for our workaway.
    There is also 2 large lounges and space to have some quiet as and when desired.
    We have a hot tub in the garden and a large enough space to relax in.
    Ideally we would like help with some gardening/Diy projects and some cooking and child care.

    The benefit here will be the language of English, and I also have good experience in gardening, and also learn from my husband about the cars he has.
    We are a relaxed family and enjoy a nice family life.
    Plenty of places to visit locally, places of history and large Estates, about an hour away is the city of Bath and Bath and Wells with the lovely Cathedral.
    Longlete Estate and wildlife park is only 25 mins away.
    I have a bicycle which is available to use and the hot tub to relax in! so bring a swimming costume.
