I have a house on the seafront in Torcross Devon, part of the beautiful South Hams. I live with my partner and our 2 dogs.
My self and my partner work from home, I am 49 and an architect and my partner is 51 and an engineer. We have 6 grown up children between us.
I have 4 years experience of hosting young people in my home previously as I used to provide room and board to young drama students who were studying and away from home for the first time at the local school of dance and drama.
I have also been a foster parent for years and have lots of experience helping young people develop skills and learn.
We would welcome a little help with basic painting decorating, diy and a bit of plumbing/electrics. We have a house with 5 double bedrooms all en-suit bathrooms with parking and on a bus route between Dartmouth and Plymouth, so a great place for people to come and visit.

We live in an area of outstanding natural beauty and special scientific interest. We are on the coastal path and on a nature reserve and beach of historic interest as it’s where Exercise Tiger took place in preparation for the D day landings.
We both love to cook and we are both keen on eating healthily. I used to be a chef so we eat reasonably well. I have also been a foster parent for years and have lots of experience helping young people develop skills and learn.
Our nearest coastal towns are Salcombe, kingsbridge and Dartmouth offering lots in the way of bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs as well as beach life and water-sports.
This is a lovely part of the country for exploring if you are into nature or scenery, quaint villages, tucked away but good access to Plymouth , Exeter, Dartmouth, Dartmoor National Park and Totnes which has a direct train line to London Paddington in less that 3 hours.
The south Hams is a wonderful place for walking, cycling, fishing, sailing, surfing and meeting new and interesting people. There is a vibrant tourist scene and many young people live here or are passing through.

We would welcome help with basic house maintenance including painting and decorating both inside and out, a bit of diy and a bit of plumbing and electrics. We are renovating our house but nothing major needs doing, we just want help with the projects that we don't have either the time for or skills in.

We cook an evening meal which we sit down to eat as a family each evening. Breakfast and lunch are more flexible. Breakfast; toast and cereal are always available and we have the occasional fry up at the weekends. Lunches are relaxed and can be as simple as a sandwich or something more organised such as an al fresco Mediterranean style salad with cold meats cheese and bread on the decked terrace over looking the sea at the front or lake to the back.
We can offer a space in the cupboard and fridge if you want to have some of your own food available otherwise you are very welcome to join in with all our meals as a member of the household.

Near Plymouth, Dartmouth, Exeter, Salcombe and Dartmoor national park so some great things to see and do. Also great for Coastal Path walks and watching nature
