Hi my name is Lou and my partner Bob and I live here with our 6yr little girl. She goes to school at the local school. Bob works from home as a designer and I am a yoga teacher and massage therapist and mother! We are looking for someone or a couple to help us sort out the house which is a big project in itself and with some renovations and manual tasks in and around the property.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live in a village called Clifford. in a big and beautiful house with a garden and spectacular views of the Brecon beacons.
I work in a yoga teacher and massage therapist. My partner runs his own web designer business from home. We have a 6yr old daughter who goes to the local school who is very sociable and loves the outdoors. You'll be able to discover the wonderful town of Hay which is renowned for its books and it is a small but interesting town. It is 5 minutes away by car.
About my hobbies, I like sport, we could go walking and cycling. We have a big dog Suki who is very friendly and needs walking in the mountains every day. We also have two farm cats. We live near by the river Wye, which is great for swimming in, and there is canoeing along the River Wye which is very beautiful. We also like cooking, boardgames and cards! We have bicycles you could use to explore the area.
We welcome someone or a couple to do some repairs in the house and some general painting. Someone who can also do general maintenance around the gardens/outdoor area. The house is big, and I need help with day-to-day upkeep and am getting the house ready to rent out at the end of June. Living with us would be a chance to improve your English and to enjoy our space and connect with nature. It truly is a magical spot.
We welcome someone to help out with general maintenance around the property. Ideally someone who can do some tasks around the garden and helping with some DIY in the loft. Potentially with some painting and day to day upkeep of the house.
