We run a small, attractive 4 bedroom guest house, in picturesque St Ives Cornwall, England, which has 4 stunning sandy beaches and a working harbour. Our guesthouse is very close to the surfing Porthmeor Beach. Its an idyllic place to spend a few weeks volunteering.

We are offering an opportunity for the season,(depending on your availability), for 2020, ideally covering the period between Easter - Late October 2020. The accommodation is very comfortably suited to solo applicants,though could also be suitable for an established couple - who are happy to share the compact studio accommodation.

We are flexible on timings and happy to discuss your preferred arrival and departure dates.

Approx 20-25 hours per week - spread across 7 days per week - it just depends on the number of changeovers/arrivals in any given week.

There is plenty of downtime - lots of time to explore and enjoy the beautiful town, beaches and the artistic community, if that's your bag.

Our couple will be required to run the guesthouse with full responsibility for all aspects of the work, and any necessary tasks in the garden. all aspects of their work.
It is a happy, friendly and laid-back environment, with a very strong customer focus.
Applicants must be honest, trustworthy, healthy, self-motivated and reliable - prepared to roll up their sleeves and get on with the job. Good people skills essential, as is a genuine feel for doing this kind of work.

This is neither difficult nor strenuous work at all, but we require it to be carried out to a high standard. We are therefore looking for individuals who takes pride in their work.

In return, we offer a friendly and laid-back working environment. We also offer a very comfortable, rent-free, self-contained and fully equipped studio-room accommodation - (please see 4th, 5th and 6th photos below), in one of the most picturesque locations in Europe.
Free utility bills and a food budget will also be provided. Apply with full confidence - our volunteers are well treated - you only need to check out our reviews.

Before contacting Mary, for further information, please ensure you have already added an informative Helpx profile, description and a recent photo, onto your posting/listing. Regrettably, we are unable to consider your applications without this information.
