We have some spaces for helpers from March until June. We have 26 acres of rolling grassland in the Clyde Valley. We are 4km from the nearest small town (Biggar). The farm has a small flock of Hebridean Sheep, some alpaca , ponies and a thoroughbred horse, as well as chickens, geese and quail. We grow vegetables and fruit in a walled garden and there is a small orchard.
Work includes animal husbandry, mucking out, weeding, planting of trees and vegetables, pruning, hedging etc. Currently we are concentrating on the restoration of our farm buildings (built in the 1790's). The buildings, listed and protected by Historic Scotland, are being restored using traditional materials (lime mortar, stone work, slates and cast iron).
There is some gardening, landscaping and groundwork in progress. We are creating a series of ponds at the back of the farm for water storage, and a small wildlife pond. The Georgian farmhouse also serves as a 4 Star Bed and Breakfast, and the farm, barns and gr... more inside

We have vacancies from May to September, and we much prefer to host couples or two close friends, ideally with previous HelpX references.

Would you like to stay with two professional garden writers? We're looking for bright, enthusiastic, responsible people to help with household management, cleaning, gardening, DIY and odd jobs.

We have three domestic organic gardens which include a small fruit garden, greenhouse, free-range chickens, herbs and vegetable beds that we use for our own food. We also photograph our gardens for books and magazines, so we love trying new things. We can help to teach all the basics required for organic gardening as well as key skills for interesting practical projects. That said, we'd love to hear from you if you have gardening skills already!

Although we live in the centre of a beautiful historic town, we have a peaceful, comfortable house and we're just 50 minutes by train from central London and a bus ride away from stunning 'Constable country... more inside

Our Family built this House in 1960 as a holiday home. It is now our dwelling House,a samll timber house built on a hill overlooking the sea to The Isle of Skye and also looks down the Sound of Sleat to Ardnamurchan Point and The Small Isles,
The House is situated in a large Highland Garden of some 5 acres with a large Top Park further inland of 2 acres. We are now looking for helpx helpers to work in the garden, but also to hopefully stay a little longer and occasionally "hold the fort" and help out with house-keeping, cooking, change-overs at The Green House, (a little Luxury Cabin in the south end of the Garden) and help look after 2 cats & a dog.
It is a beautiful area steeped in ancient history from the Brochs build about 300 BC, to Gavin Maxwell's Ring of Bright Water at Sandaig to the World's oldest car ferry, The original Skye Ferry. Must be able to enjoy a glass of wine and eat Seafood if Vegetarian!It is a minimum stay of at least 1-2 MONTHS and a min age of 30 yrs old.

We have a large 5 bedroom house which is in need off its 5 yearly makeover. Sadly we have got to that stage in life when we could do with some help with building repairs, painting inside and out, gardening, window cleaning and general cleaning for a period of 2 to 3 weeks.Our priority is to repair or replace a conservatory which is on the first floor (one up off the ground)so one person, ideally should have general building skills.
The accommodation is in an en-suit room with its own sitting room suitable for a couple or two friends as there is a bed in the separate sitting room.We are a two min walk from the train station. In one direction you can go to the beach, the scenery on the journey is breathtaking. In the other direction is the Medieval town of Shrewsbury and beyond the Cities of Manchester and Birmingham and of course London, this can be visited in a day.We live in a beautiful part of the country but we are very accessible to lost of interesting Places.

Update 17th March 2014: We are planning to do lots of work on the nature reserve and gardens this year, but we only have space for camping! We can provide a good sized tent, barbecue equipment, lanterns etc, and access to washing facilities / bathroom, and we will provide food.

General handy-people welcome!

We can only offer two weeks maximum though stays may extended once you arrive and if things work out. Prefer English speakers (but doesn't have to be perfect English!)

-------------------


We have two country hotels which need maintenance right through the season, and assistance with painting and decorating, fixing, and clearing and maintaining outside areas would be much appreciated. We also have Crossbank Nature Reserve, which was begun as a simple hobby, and now over twenty years on, we have created a well established wildlife haven for a great variety of plants and animals.

However, it needs constant maintenance too! Cutting back paths, planting new trees, re... more inside
