Lovely spacious bungalow guesthouse run by an English couple in their 60s & 70s. 11km from Kandy City and brimming with birds and butterflies and other wildlife. We have a lovely private pool (which Volunteers are welcome to use) and a stream as well as a large garden

Please Note, the help required will be mostly in the garden and clearing plants and undergrowth, making fences and shifting earth and stone- Also possibly constructing garden walls and steps. We also have some basic carpentry jobs that need doing if anyone has those skills.Please try to book in good time as we get a lot of last minute requests! We give priority to volunteers who stay for longer than a week,and we do not accept volunteers for less time than 1 week. Our home is about 4 hours (by car) from the International airport, and about 35 minutes from Kandy by car/tuk-tuk. We will send directions when the stay is booked.

Volunteer accommodation is in our garden room which has a double bed and two sets of bunk beds, it also has its own bathroom. Volunteers must be prepared to share this 6 bedded room.

We expect Volunteers to work for 5 hours per day (normally 8 a.m - 1p.m.(With a short break) 5 days per week (Days off are normally Monday and Thursday - though this is negotiable.) We will provide your food and lodging in return. You will have use of a small kitchen to prepare your meals (we provide ingredients) and twice a week you will be able to eat up at the house with us. We look forward to meeting you all! We have great fun with our volunteers and love to swap stories, and play board games etc.
