  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We sold our house and we were ready to start our world adventures in March 2020, but then the restrictions came!

    We are now planning to stay in Scotland for a while and we would love a little help. Mainly with the garden of our new home and also some painting inside and outside. We would like to create some vegetable gardens, make some paths, repair walls lots of walls and other projects like this. At the moment we only have a big area of new grass that we grew! You will also be able to explore and enjoy our beautiful countryside, mountains and coastline.

    We both teach English online from home and our children go to the local high school. Our lives can get very busy and we would welcome some help around the house. We recently had a digger come to resurface our garden because it was left in a bad state by the previous owners. It is now a blank canvas and we would love some help creating and planting flowerbeds, making a vegetable garden, repairing walls and digging/making a patio area and paths. If the weather is not great we have some indoor painting projects we would like help with too.

    If you are able to teach Spanish we would love it if you could spend a little time speaking Spanish with our children. We used to live in Spain and they learned Spanish there, but now they have no opportunity to practise.

    We love having guests in our home and would like to learn all about where you come from. We can suggest places for you to go and see on your days off and hopefully (restrictions permitting!) we will be able to take you to some places too.

    In your spare time, you can use our bikes to explore, spend time walking by the sea, in the mountains, or by the river. We also have Netflix, Amazon TV and great Wifi. There are also two pubs, three coffee shops and a small shop in the village.

    We have three small dogs and one cat who all love visitors.

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    You will have your own bedroom in our home (at the moment we can only offer you a small bedroom as we have not completed renovations yet). Our family home is in Helmsdale, Sutherland, which we have started to renovate. We enjoy hillwalking and the outdoors. Come and explore the stunning scenery of Sutherland and surrounding areas. We live two minutes walk from a beautiful river walk. Five minutes walk from the sea and five minutes walk to beautiful hills.

    Our house in Helmsdale:
    We have recently purchased this four bedroom house. We are completely renovating this house and garden and it is 'work in progress'! It is needing a lot of work and has to be fully refurbished. It has hot water, a working bathroom and it is heated by a multi-fuel stove. We are getting a new kitchen fitted at the moment - but things have been slow with the restrictions in place.

    * Our bathroom is very, very old and not pretty until it is renovated.
