Hi! We’re a family of 4 amy (42) mike (45) ada (12) and eartha (5) we home school our kids and live in an old farmhouse in a remote area of north Cumbria. We have a small woodland, keep chickens (12) and ducks (2) and grow some of our own vegetables. We’re very interested in sustainable living and learning by doing!
We’re all learning Spanish though we’re generally pretty bad at it! We’d really like to find Spanish families interested in house swaps or house stays. We’re happy to offer our skills in exchange for accommodation, I’m (Amy) a sustainable builder, so can lime plaster, do basic block work and plumbing etc I also have a background in community work so am happy to support your kids in their learning. Mike is a software writer and experienced climber. Ada plays fiddle (folk violin) to a high standard and teaches at a local community music school.
We are interested in people staying here to look after the house and animals while we’re away, or to come while we’re here and help the kids with language learning, or help out with the building / gardening work.
We’ve had a lot of volunteers stay with us from work away, but we feel that we’d like to get involved in the volunteering too now!
