*** At the moment we only have space for helpers who are willing to camp (bringing their own tent, sleeping bag etc) in exchange for just 2-3 hours work a day plus 2 days off a week. Do drop me a line if you are interested :) ***

Set on the edge of the pretty fishing village of Beer on Devon`s south coast, this 39-bed Youth Hostel is in need of a willing helper over the coming months to help keep it looking it`s best.

The work here at YHA Beer mainly comprises of 4-5 hours a day of cleaning (inc making beds) with some occasional gardening and painting, and with 2 days off a week.
It`s not particularly glamorous (can include a fair share of cleaning toilets!) but the reward of living in this lovely village just a 10 minute walk to the beach, I think, makes it well worthwhile :)

Your accommodation would be in your own room in the small on-site staff flat which you`ll usually share with one other member of staff. There`s a shared bathroom and small kitchen for you to cook your meals (food is not included I`m afraid).
I live next door with my partner and our two dogs.

Whilst we only have one room in the staff flat for helpers, if that is full over the warmer summer months and you are happy to camp (with your own equipment) with full use of the hostel facilities in exchange for just 2-3 hours work a day then just drop me a line to see if we can fit you in on our little campground.

There are a few small shops in the village and a limited bus service that links us with pretty Sidmouth and Seaton for our nearest supermarket, and also to Exeter. So whilst you would benefit from having your own transport it`s certainly not essential.

Beer is sat on the South West Coast path so a perfect spot if you enjoy walking and the outdoors.

We`re a tiny team here and are really looking forward to welcoming a new friendly face :)

Drop me a line if you`re interested (minimum 1 week).
