  • Description


    We are a French-English family and speak both languages at home. I do a lot of healthy cooking (gluten and dairy-free, mostly vegan), and my husband is a builder and teaches Tai Chi. I am also Steiner trained and like to raise my children without television or electronic toys. We love meeting new people from around the world, and like to share meals together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers could increase their knowledge of the French and the English languages, meet people in the village, and get more experience looking after young children. I am also happy to share my knowledge of gluten-free vegan cooking.

    I have a four-year-old and a two-year-old and need some help with looking after them, cooking, and in the house. I don't expect major cleaning work but some help with washing up, laundry, and mostly keeping the house tidy. Also looking after the children some of the time, so experience with young children would be appreciated.
    We have just had two wonderful workaway experiences in the summer so we are happy to continue and are now looking for someone for the Autumn term. We are looking for someone who could stay for at least 4 weeks, ideally longer.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a beautiful village near the city of Bath, which is one of the most visited places in the UK. Our house is very peaceful and there are plenty of nice walks around. Also close to Bristol, a city with a lot going on. The village itself has got two pubs, two shops, a tea shop, activity classes, and a hairdresser.
    There is limited public transport so own transport would be ideal, although our previous workawayers managed to get around by bus, or getting lifts from me or other people in the village.
    We have internet access but no wi-fi. So laptop is fine with ethernet cable (provided), but no internet through phones or tablets. Also bad mobile phone reception in the village. Access to landline phone.
