Hi, we are looking for helpers for 2019 we run a busy little bnb in the the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. We joined up to meet, learn from and exchange ideas with people from all over the world and have had many fantastic helpers over the last few years and hope to have many more. We host up to 2 people at a time but not friends or couples and people with different first languages so they have to speak English more and improve quicker. Also been a helper in Poland twice and had a great time. Helpers are making a real difference to us, a very difficult lambing season (due to the weather) went very well thanks to those extra helping hands helping around the place .clean comfortable private room available(non smokers only). help in the b&b needed all year round. varied day to day tasks arise, gardening,dry stone walling,lambing time in March/April (no experience needed easy and quick to learn a skill for life).... open minded friendly welcome awaits and expect the same in return. Neat and tidy helpers with an eye for attention to detail very welcome. Help with improving your English in a fun enjoyable way it really works. Beginners Italian spoken but help required. This is a perfect place to write your final papers for university. Plenty of time off and free lifts around the dales and into the local town Grassington,Skipton and visit Bolton abbey,Ilkley, Haworth(the brontes),Leeds, York, Harrogate, Bradford,Salts Mill, Fountains Abbey, Malham,Settle,Hawes,Harewood House and Manchester can be reached. the area is ideal for walking, running, cycling, bird watching, otters(if your lucky),help or learn to bake or just chill out. it is easy to get to us national express buses come to skipton (where we will pick you up) from all over the uk and it is easy to get to us from Leeds. Free wifi. stay for a couple of weeks or a few months,stay for a while go, and then come back!! We are now lucky enough to be welcoming back some of our previous helpers and there families and catching up with them, it really is a great pleasure to be a host.
Keep smiling !
