  • Description


    We are a family (German/ Irish/ British) of 4 living in a small town in Northamptonshire with 2 healthy, school going and fun loving boys aged 8 and 11 and 2 large Maine coon cats who do not get on!
    We are an English speaking house but can also speak German (native) and French, and we live in a large period property with a large garden in a beautiful part of the country.
    The area has fabulous wildlife aswell as a couple of miles from a shopping centre where apart from shops there are restaurants and a cinema.
    There are bus and train services that serve local runs and London and North/ Midlands.
    The house is walking distance to a town centre where there are various shops and cafes.

    Currently we are looking for a workaway to support the family for cultural exchanges in language, cooking etc. Also we have small gardening and DIY projects you can learn new skills and get new experience.

    We can offer own bedroom with shared bathroom and to be part of our family. We can also offer use of a bike and if you are a confident driver we can put you on our car insurance.

    Our ideal dates are mid October until mid December or thereabouts, also we can look at smaller and bigger timeframes.
    We consider people who are at least 20 years old, are vaccinated (or in the process of being vaccinated) and we have no upwards age limit !!
