This is a workshop venue, guest house and language school on the side of Rydal Lake and surrounded by mountains. It is in the centre of the National Park 2 miles from Ambleside and Grasmere villages. The cottage dates from the 16th century and the adjoining barn has been converted into a yoga and dance studio. Gardens include a vegetable plot, summerhouse and sauna. We need hardworking people - year round - who enjoy living in community and enjoy cleaning, laundry work, helping in the kitchen and garden work. We ask for 26 hours help each week and we are flexible with times to suit you. In return we offer you full board and accommodation, generally shared, and the chance to experience living in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and joining in the wide range of possibilities that Nab Cottage offers. You eat all meals with us and live with us as part of the family/community. During your free time there is a lot to explore; the area is fantastic for walking/climbing/biking and sailing. We have a canoe on the lake you can use. During the Summer when the English language courses are running you may also be able to join some of the classes (when there is space) and all the other activities we provide for the students here. These include guided walks, massage/singing/dance/meditation workshops, yoga classes, theatre trips etc.
