We are a family who live in a big old Victorian house in Leicester. My family consists of my wife and I and our boys. Our boys are 21,19 and foster son 19 . We also have an eighty five year old living with us as part of our family...he originally owned the house and gave it to us to restore...what a job ! There are other houses too including a farm at the sea side...it's literally on the beach !
There are also 4 acres of ground to maintain along with pigs a horse, guinea fowl,chickens,doves ,peacocks and our dogs !
That's just our animals....we also have several badger setts,foxes bats and various rare species...stag beetles,great crested newts etc. Our house is entirely heated by log burners and we recycle everything .There are a few outbuildings and a woodwork shop along with various "projects" I need assistance with... I even built my own car, which is awesome lol...well I think it is anyway !
We need help in all aspects of building , gardening and general maintenance. I currently do everything on my own and it takes forever...we love our way of life but it's quite alternative some would say !
We would love and welcome anyone to come along and give us a hand !
I work on the place for 5 hours a day ,5 days a week between the school runs etc but I have the weekends free!
You can also do what you want on the weekends...I also wouldn’t mind if you needed more than a weekend to pull in some trips to other parts of the UK whilst you are staying with us...ie:Scotland or lreland etc as other guests have done in the past !
In exchange for a maximum of 5 hours a day ,we will happily provide food and lodging and meet all your requirements regarding living away from home, no matter how long you stay.You can stay from as little as one week or stay however long you like, we are very relaxed on this issue.
We will endeavour to make your stay as enjoyable as possible!
Leicester as a whole is very multicultural ! Lots to see and do from Richard lll to Kasabien ! There are many Historical sights nearby and beautiful country parks and walks ! Home to last years premier league football team Leicester City and of course Leicester Tigers !
We live North of Leicester near to Bradgate park and Beacon Hill...one of the oldest volcanoes on the planet !
