We are in Kent, a short walk from the centre of the picturesque historical town of Rochester with it's Dickensian heritage, Norman Castle and a lovely Cathedral. There are good road and railway links to London and Dover.

Our house is a renovation work-in-progress. We can offer short term accommodation in exchange for internal and external skills. Examples of which are garden works, using a drill (e.g. for shelves), small scale plumbing and wiring (only if qualified), gloss painting, curtain making, housekeeping, cupboard-taming or just providing an extra set of muscles to move furniture around. At the moment we are making Hugelkultur beds and would love to create a greywater system in the near future.

We are Eco-friendly, Green, Festival folk and welcome your ideas, experience and practical assistance to fulfill some of our plans. We are particularly patient and enjoy speaking with people who wish to practice their English conversation skills.

Our home is a pet-friendly, non-smoking and vegetarian household. Smoking is acceptable in the garden only please and you are welcome to cook meat in a separate kitchenette.

We have a lovely, spacious room (with kitchenette) for a single helper or for two friends to share during your stay. Broadband is available.

We request 20 hours of help per week in exchange for accommodation and food, including a communal meal each day. There will be plenty of time to explore the riverside and the town.

Parts of the house have been completed but other parts remain quite basic.

More details will be added as we go along. In the meantime please do contact us if you would like to know more...

When you email, can you please give an outline of your experience, level of skill (eg amateur/ qualified - all welcome) favourite past projects and personal enthusiasms along with your preferred dates and timescales.
