Help with decorating, basic woodwork and some autumn garden pruning and weeding.
You may work on your own at times and must be able to follow instructions.
We can host a single person or possibly a couple. If a couple then practical skills would be appreciated. You would have your own room.
You will be working on your own sometimes, but Francesca will work with you whenever she can.
We will do our best to make your stay a positive happy experience!
All food is provided. Vegetables, pasta, rice, Meat, fish, vegetables, fruit - simple but healthy.
Sometimes you will cook for yourself. We make our own breakfast and sometimes own lunch but eat together in the evenings and weekends generally.
Own bright room with small double bed ( 4ft wide). Shared bathroom next door to your room. Internet connection.
25 hours work per week. Usually this is 5 hours per day 9-2 for 5 days a week with weekends off. However it is possible to be flexible and work other hours/days so that you can have more days off for sightseeing.
Plenty of time to visit the local area or to read/study/ relax in our beautiful grounds.
Francesca has a bicycle, lock and cycle helmet you can borrow, so you can go out to Bath and surrounding countryside.
We live a 20 minute walk away from the pretty town of Bradford on Avon that has a railway station. Trains run regularly to Bath and London and nearby. If possible, we will pick you up from the station. Otherwise, a taxi is £5 fare to Frankleigh House and there is a taxi office just on the outside of Bradford on Avon station which is easy to find.
Please see our excellent reviews from help x guests.
We need 2 Helpx host references!
Frankleigh House is a grand Country House converted into 6 apartments. It is about 8 miles from the Georgian city of Bath and within 25 minute walk of the pretty historic town of Bradford on Avon.
The 6 households share 7 acres of grounds, rose garden, outdoor swimming pool, camping field, vegetable allotment, and small woodland area.
Good rail service, we are well located for exploring the West Country. Great for visits to Bath, Bristol, Stonehenge. We can collect you from the station in Bradford on Avon ( 20 minute fast walk down the hill).
We can lend you one bike.
We look forward to hearing from you!
