UPDATE: We are looking for a responsible couple or two friends to volunteer with us for the whole duration of the UK summer holidays 2018. There is also the option of some paid work.

Hi there and thanks for reading our profile. To apply please tell us a bit about yourself, why you would like to volunteer with us, what relevant experience you have and what exact dates you are available.

The site: This position is ideal for nature lovers! Our beautiful off-grid campsite is located in a 600 acre woodland in East Sussex in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is a low noise, family-oriented place and no cars are allowed into the campsite. We have 'bring-your-own' tent pitches and glamping belltents each tucked into its own glade. We offer the closest thing to wild camping, with the added luxury of basic facilities. There is mains drinking water and running hot water, but no electricity. And, of course, lots of trees.
Several pubs, a cafe, post office and convenience store are in walking distance (30-45 mins). The historic town of Battle (for supermarkets, public library with Internet access, cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as Battle Abbey) is only 2 miles away. In your time off we recommed you explore the vast woodland and beaches nearby, or just relax on site.

Your hosts:We are a small and friendly company with an interest in sustainability and creating a nice working environment. Your main point of contact will be the on-site Wardens. We are Lawrence and Theresa, and we have been running the site for four years. We love living an outdoor livestyle and meeting like-minded people. Lawrence is a musician and Theresa is training to be a permaculture teacher. We have both had great experiences volunteering ourselves and have hosted some wonderful volunteers.We are both eagerly learning Portuguese so native Portuguese volunteers are especially welcome. We would prefer someone/a couple who have a good level of English. If your intention is to learn English, then we may not be a suitable host for you.

What we expect of you:
- 20h work
- respect for our woodland
- a helpful, energetic attitude
- openness and a willingness to work and to try new things

What you can expect:
- a woodland camping experience
- basic accommodation in a 4m belltent with cooking utensils and firewood allocation
- facilities are shared with our campsite guests
- a supportive team around you
