Last Updated: March 17, 2014

Update 17th March 2014: We are planning to do lots of work on the nature reserve and gardens this year, but we only have space for camping! We can provide a good sized tent, barbecue equipment, lanterns etc, and access to washing facilities / bathroom, and we will provide food.

General handy-people welcome!

We can only offer two weeks maximum though stays may extended once you arrive and if things work out. Prefer English speakers (but doesn't have to be perfect English!)


We have two country hotels which need maintenance right through the season, and assistance with painting and decorating, fixing, and clearing and maintaining outside areas would be much appreciated. We also have Crossbank Nature Reserve, which was begun as a simple hobby, and now over twenty years on, we have created a well established wildlife haven for a great variety of plants and animals.

However, it needs constant maintenance too! Cutting back paths, planting new trees, repairing fences, keeping out sheep, repairing or building new hides and bridges. It's hard work but pretty good fun and the setting is beautiful.

We will host Helpers in one of our two hotels, and we will give you breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is very tasty!

We are looking for short stay helpers, 1 to 2 weeks, and would like 5 days work (about 6 hours a day) in return for 2 days off in a week (you can choose which days off).
