About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

I live in a Cotswold stone Farmhouse near Bath which is one and a half hours from London by train. I began offering B&B to guests 30 years ago and I also have three holiday cottages in the garden that guests can rent. During the summer I bake scones and serve tea to my guests and also offer dinner to those that want to try my home cooking. My B&B has recently become very well known in Japan as it is the location for a popular anime that is on Japanese TV. I would really like to have helpers that can speak good English and a little Japanese would be a great help but not essential. My helpers will assist me with all the day to day tasks such as meeting guests, serving breakfast, washing up, making beds, gardening etc

I am a very energetic and creative career woman with a huge amount of motivation.
I love what I do and I am still enjoying my work 30 years since I began my B&B.
I really enjoy having helpers from all over the world and enjoy learning from them as much as they learn from me. In my 20's I was a DJ so I really enjoy music and dancing. Cooking is my passion and I love to travel and find new recipes from all over the world. I'm a collector of vintage hats which I wear whenever possible!
