    We are a family of 5 living (plus mum currently in a caravan) on a 7 acre farm in rural Suffolk.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live in rural sufffolk and run a very traditional thatching business from our farm. This is a trade only done in certain areas of the UK and we can show visitors how it is done from harvesting of materials to the finished roof. The area is a traditional rural farming community and has market towns nearby plus a heritage coastline. The house itself is around 400 years old and is full of history.

    We would be interested in help with the following:
    • fencing the land with stock fencing (particularly interested in people who have experience in fencing or good at physical work and keen to learn as we want to fence the whole 7 acres)
    • cutting, pulling and raking thistles
    • general gardening
    • pruning apple trees and planting hedges in autumn/winter
    • cooking and cleaning in the house
    • decorating (particularly interested in someone who’s got experience as we have quite a few rooms to paint!)
    • childcare of our twins (boys age 4)
    • learning Spanish (the whole family)
    • home education projects with our daughter aged 12 (particularly art and spanish but help with English and maths would also be good)

    The closest town is 2 miles away, it has a train station and some buses. Public transport is quite bad and our house is very rural on quite a fast road. The coastline is around 20 mins drive away, the city of Norwich is about 45 mins away and London 3 hours by train. We live in a fairly busy home, often have friends round and the kids can be quite hectic! Saying that the countryside is peaceful and there is enough space for everyone to find a place to be away from everyone if needs be.
