    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a house that has been occupied by the same family for over 200 years and the history that goes with that in the local area. We speak English and French at home and enjoy the cultural diversity. You will be close to the Giant's Causeway and coast. Our children speak French and are studying French and Spanish and would love to share it.

  • Help


    if you have gardening skills we are looking for people to help the reclaiming of the Garden (an old victorian garden )
    If you have carpentry skills we have an 18th century stable yard that needs some doors repairing as well as painting.
    If you have Decorating skills we are looking to decorate various rooms in the house.
    on top of this there are always fences that need repairing and wood that needs chopping and gardens that need tending.
    No previous experience is essential.
