    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in a rural, but not isolated community, brings a slower pace of life. Working with our teenage son, will enrich both you and he. We have travelled extensively and would like to hear about your life and the country and culture in which you live.
    Enjoying our garden and trips to the varied and pleasant countryside and coast, brings joy and new experiences.

    What else ...

    We live in a village, about 3 miles from Malton. Malton is a lovely town with plenty of shops, cafes and bars. It also has a train station, with trains going to the coast ( Scarborough) and to York and onwards to Manchester and Liverpool. Trains from York to London take 2 hours.
    We live in beautiful North Yorkshire, with views of the Woods from our house. The area is surrounded by wonderful countryside, The Wolds and Moors, and a little further The Dales. The coast is about 30 minutes away by car.
    There is plenty of lovely walks and cycling, and we have bicycles available.
    York is our nearest City, 30 minutes by train. It is a walled city, with a great number of architectural gems including The York Minster ( Cathedral) there are very few cars permitted inside the city, which makes it a pleasure to walk around.
    Ampleforth Abbey and College, and it’s order of Benedictine monks, is about 30 minutes away and is a place for quiet reflection.
    We enjoy our garden and spent a great deal of time in it during the spring and summer.
    Apart from my, wife and son, we also have a horse, a cat and a dog.
