Last Updated: January 11, 2018

After a long winter break we are now ready to welcome new people, and are happy to hear from anyone who would like to stay with us and help for a bit from January 2018 onwards.



We live in the small city of Hereford and my partner Richard lives nearby. I have three grown-up children (two are travelling at the moment, and my son lives in the area). We have got a cat and a kitten, and Richard has got a dog. We are friendly, open-minded and outgoing and enjoy meeting new people.

I have a small garden, and live 10 minutes walk from the centre of Hereford with its beautiful cathedral, but also very close to open countryside. There are some small towns nearby to explore, lots of quiet lanes for running or cycling and a river for lovely walks.

There are always a variety of jobs to be done, both in the garden and in the house, such as planting, building raised beds, painting garden furniture, repairing bikes, or helping with jobs around the house such as cooking, woodwork, cleaning etc. There is usually a suitable job for everyone.

In exchange for accommodation and meals, we would like approx 4 hours work per day (sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less, depending on the job, but always with plenty of time off). Sometimes we need help at the weekend, and your time-off can then be during the week.

It would be good if you could stay for at least 1 week. You would have your own small room in the house, and a shared bathroom, and I can help you with your English if you are trying to learn the language.

We speak English and German, and also a bit of Spanish,French and Italian.

We look forward to meeting you!
