  • Description


    Hello workawayers,

    We Live on outskirts of Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire with our 11 year old son and 2 labradors. We have a busy family life, as we home educate our son, as well as travelling for work and education so we enjoy having an extra pair of hands at home to help us to better manage our home/garden.

    There are several lovely places to walk from the house, including a big park, a small wood and a nature reserve. You can also walk into Hemel Hempstead old town or the new town from our house and take a short bus or 35 minute walk to the train station where there are regular trains to London.
    There is a big national trust forest called Asheridge forest very close by, which was the forbidden forest in Harry Potter films. It’s also a very beautiful place to visit, as are the small villages around the area. You are welcome to borrow our bike to investigate the area.
    We can help you to find great places to visit for your days off.
    We very much enjoy meeting other travellers and swapping stories and experiences . We are also very happy to help with visitors who are learning English and enjoy co creating the evening meal together to share our different flavours.

    We are both self employed and home educate our son so our home life can feel busy and not particularly structured so we know from experience, that our best work away guests are most able to go with the flow of everyday being different.
    This doesn’t mean that you’d be asked to help for longer or not have your structure but it’s important that we emphasis that due to the nature of our work and home schooling, we are often coming and going through out the day.

    We also appreciate hosting workaways who are able to take on tasks around the house independently and bring your own initiative and creative flair.
    We will generally ask you to specifically help us with certain tasks eg painting or clutter clearing Could be on the menu for summer 2022, as well as generally helping with cooking, tidying around the house as part of our family shared chores.

    We also have a very small garden that has been growing veggies on a very small scale and we need help to water and tend to these during the summer season.

    We travel from time to time so an ability to be at home alone with dogs and cat is also very helpful.
    We have travelled through out the last years and belong to awakened travel groups to give an indication of our preferences.

    We also have two bouncy and very friend;y labradors who love to be your friend so being comfortable with doggies in your environment is a must to stay with us. You can, if you choose, take them for walks so it’s always useful to Bring walking shoes and a rain coat.. We have things you can borrow if you don’t have space for this.
    We also have my older daughters cat staying with us during the summer.

    We are not specifically asking for help with childcare for our son Who is 11 but it’s important to us that are guests are child friendly and enjoy being around a very talkative and fun loving child who will ask you to play board games and sport and quiz you about your life and travel adventures as this is home education in action!
