Country Life: au-pair couple needed in rural Herefordshire

We are a happy family of four living on a rural smallholding in Herefordshire (5 mins from the lovely Market Town of Ledbury).  We are looking for an English speaking couple who are happy, healthy, enthusiastice and loyal who want to fill their days helping with our two gorgeous children (10 and 11); feeding the animals; gardening; maintaining the house; driving and running errands; co-ordinating and running events; picking apples and making apple juice and cider.

We are very relaxed and want you to becomem part of the family (live-in from end of May).  Husband is away during the week and the children go to school 15 mins drive away; fun, swimming, playing, trampolining, walking, cycling etc is had at all other times!

You have your own accommodation; a car; a ten (for weekend / holiday camping!) and weekends are free to explore the amazing surrounding area.  On top of your basic pay you will receive a food allowance and there are lots of opprotunities to add to your income by babysitting, ironing, cleaning, gardening etc for local friends.  "Mothers Help" and "Handyman" will work up to 6 hours a day and 2 nights a week each babysitting is included (although very rarely used").  We are very flexible!  It is essential you can both drive and we will, of course, pay for the petrol you use whilst running errands.

If you are kind, patient, caring, communicative and you genuinely like children and rolling up your sleeves we would love to hear from you.  If you'd like to speak to our current lovely au pairs (who are leaving to go travelling) that can be arranged.  I look forward to welcoming you int our home.
