Hello!

We are located in between Christchurch & Kaikoura in a friendly New Zealand farming town called Cheviot. Your accommodation is separate from the main house, so you would have your own room. The kitchen & bathroom are all in a newly built warm building.
We are looking for helpers to assist with painting, gardening & general tidying up. We have a new baby, so that’s been keeping us busy & the extra help would be wonderful.

If you are interested in seeing some farms & maybe going hunting – there are opportunities to do that here in Cheviot. We also have a sheep shearing business & you could get the opportunity to go out to visit also.

In terms of work in exchange for accommodation:
2 hours work = Accommodation
4 Hours work = Accommodation & Food

Gore Bay Beach is 10 minutes away; there is a lovely park reserve next door. Kaikoura is 50 minutes’ drive north, Hanmer Springs is 1 hour & Christchurch is 1 hour/20 mins.

Please email or text if you have any questi... more inside

Nestled in the beautiful Southern Alps is the historic settlement of Cass (approx half way between Christchurch and Greymouth). I am offering private accommodation (separate from the house with own bathroom)in exchange for odd jobs - painting, gardening and lawn mowing.

There is plenty to do in the area including fishing on many of the nearby high country lakes (1.6 km to Lake Sarah) day walks/ tramping in Arthurs Pass National Park and Craigieburn forest Park, skiing on one of the 5 local ski fields, four wheel driving, Scree jumping (down Sugar Loaf). A short drive to Cave stream scenic reserve (one of the south Islands best free activities) and Castle Hill natural rock climbing park (where scenes from Lord of the Rings and Narnia were filmed).

* We are also looking for a builder, stone mason, tiler or carpenter with experience to do some specific tasks that we need a helping hand with.

We would love to have helpers from June onwards :-)
We are so lucky to live on a 10 acre life style block situated in North Canterbury . We have horses which are used primarily for dressage, show jumping and eventing. We also have a lovely property with a large easy care garden!
It would be great to have some help in the garden, general weeding and spraying, but mainly we need help exercising and caring for the horses. So we would love to hear from helpers that are really experienced horse people! Especially those that have riding experience in dressage,show jumping and or eventing!!
Our horses are competition horses and young horses, so this means that they are not "school horses" so we CAN NOT have helpers that are beginner riders or inexperienced riders!!
We are looking for help from June onwards!!
We have 4 children, 2 are school age and 2 are finished with school and are studying away from home!
We are non smokers!! And would prefer helpers that are non smokers :-)

We are fully booked until June ...
We are a well travelled family used to International visitors. We have a beautiful sheep and beef farm which we work full time. We have flat, rolling and hilly country with mountain and sea views. We farm two properties and there is always plenty to do. We also have several quality horses used for now smaller competitions and hunting. For a keen person there will be many opportunities to ride, if they are up to it. There is not time to teach people to ride as we are a very busy family so please do not think you can learn to ride here.The riding is generally not included as work,rather a privilege. Riding around our beautiful hill farm is regularly available. We take the horses to the beach sometimes also, which is a special spot.
General help with the horses, garden, farm or house and cooking. We welcome people who love to cook! We will find work suited to the individual ability and desire! Some days may be full days work and then a free day or m... more inside
