  • Description


    We are Mal, Wayne, Luna, Ziggy and our 2 dogs Woody and Honey. We live in North Cornwall near Bude. My wife Mal, runs her own business as a birth doula, the house, 2 kids, 2 dogs and pretty much everything else that goes with our amazing life. Our 2 children are 3 and 4. Luna is 4, a very loving, sensitive and talkative souls. She loves learning things and helping. Ziggy is 3, he is the crazy one of the family. Hyper, funny, loveable and loves the outdoors. I'm Wayne, I own my own businesses. The main one being a segway adventure company.

    During the seasonal months... my job is hectic! I work 7 days a week, 12 hours a day. So understandably, Mal has alot on her hands. We are looking for someone to stay with us at our home in the countryside (and I mean the middle of nowhere) to assist in day to day living. Helping with the kids, cooking, tidying and occasionally helping me on the segways etc. (i will pay you a small wage for any Segway instructor work you do)

    In exchange, you will have your own room, with TV, (Netflix etc) internet, we will show you the beautiful area of Cornwall, provide all of your meals and so on.

    This is a very relaxed workaway. We dont expect you to be on call 24 hours, just some general help as and when. You are free to roam and enjoy yourself too.
