PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE NOW MOVED FROM CORNWALL BUT WILL SOON RELOCATE TO SPAIN AND WILL UPDATE OUR LISTING AS SOON AS WE CAN. THANK YOU WITH ALL OUR HEARTS FOR THE HELP FROM ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS OVER 2012-2014. LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING NEW PEOPLE FOR NEW CHALLENGES SOON!! V&L ??

We are a small family of 2 humans and a multitude of furry creatures who have miraculously landed ourselves with a huge 200 year old farmhouse in a stunning part of Cornwall. A dedicated footpath runs from the back of our garden across the fields and down to a beautiful beach. We are slap bang in the middle of Cornwall so it is a perfect spot for exploring the county and the famous coastline.

Making the most of our luck we let out our 4 extra rooms to travellers or people needing short term accommodation and run our house as a homely mini hostel/casual B&B being as eco friendly, organic and creative as possible... BUT... there is so much more we want to do. We have a big garden area with mountains of potential and disused parts of the house in need of the love and care so we and our guests can really make the most of this space! We have only been here since June so it is all very much still a project. Who knows where we might take it.

We need brains filled with ideas and people to help build and create things and spaces to get our project on the go.

We need volunteers to help build fences and chicken runs, dig veg plots, plant stuff, fix up and decorate some inside space that we hope to eventually use for groups, therapy stuff or whatever. We don't believe in fixed plans, we are more vague ideas and doing what feels right sort of people but basically, we need volunteers to help out with a bit of everything.

At the moment we particularly need people to help with gardening, work in the veg plots and people who can paint in the house. We really need people who already have a reasonable level with these skills as its important they can just get on with things unsupervised after being given instruction.

Accommodation is a room with one bunk, at times to be shared by 2 volunteers, but we will let you know if you will be sharing or not, so you can decide for yourself at the time that this suits you! The room is recently redecorated and kept clean so is quite comfortable. We are a guest house though and as such rooms must be for paying guests first. in this case your room will be a very large attic room in the house. There are 2 massive bathrooms in the house, shared between us, guests and volunteers. Volunteers have access to guest living and dining rooms and the communal kitchen.
