We are keen green recyclers living in a large edwardian house (1904) We have had wonderful helpXers since summer 07 and they have done great things in the house and garden.

We would like you to come initially for 2 weeks, to help in the house and garden and also to help with young foreign students who stay with us while they study at language school nearby.

If you speak French we would like you to spend time with our 17 year old daughter, Grace. She is studying French higher at IB and needs lots of French conversation, playing card games, watching movies, maybe doing some jobs in the house together, go for a walk with the the dog, in the park or on the beach, or go for coffee in a cafe.

We ask HelpXers to work 25 hours each week. The times will vary; usually in the mornings, but sometimes afternoons/evenings. Hopefully we will have another helper so that you have someone to work with and to go exploring after work - perhaps you can come with a friend?

We like to get to know our helpers before we agree to a long stay; come for one or two weeks to see how we get along... Please do not ask us to agree to a longer stay before we have met and worked with you for a trial period, let's find out if we get along first! Also if you are travelling from overseas why not visit two or more hosts?

Hastings is a large town by the sea, a couple of hours from London by train; an hour from Ashford International rail station; direct train from London Gatwick airport 1 1/2 hours; train from Newhaven for Dieppe boat; bus from Dover - takes forever but it's possible!

The town has lots of free music, art, exhibitions etc and there's always the beach! We will be pleased to meet you and grateful for your help but we will expect you to entertain yourselves after work - there's lots to see, much of it free, so come and enjoy Hastings and East Sussex.


We have been helpers ourselves in France and Spain so hopefully that experience makes us better hosts! Musicians/Piano players welcome. We are vegetarian. You MUST be non-smoking. We have a small terrier dog who is very friendly with humans but will eat your socks!

We look forward to hearing from you.
