  • Description

    Description

    Retired lawyer with partner and no children or animals looking for help and general maintenance in the community and in exchange board and lodging and a chance to learn the English language and the history of the UK.

    We live in a beautiful area of Wiltshire in the southwest of England. I am living with my male partner. We are two retired professional people, I was a lawyer and he was a pilot and still passionate about aviation.

    We are both very relaxed people, enjoying walks in the countryside, travel, meeting new people and interested in the arts.

    We have been renovating our farmhouse over the last three years and have recently finished the main house and are now embarking on a project to convert our garage to a studio.

    We would like to offer the opportunity to stay with us in return for helping out around the house generally and maybe being able to help with some building and renovation work, we would provide food and accommodation in the house, some good company and an introduction to the area.

    The house is in a very rural part of Wiltshire and close to the Roman city of Bath (20 minutes by car) and also the trendy market town of Frome (voted one of the most desirable places to live in the UK). There is a train station and bus service in our village and shops within walking distance.
