I am renovating a self sufficient cottage which has a boat mooring.

I am offering accomodation and meals in exchange for help with all aspects of the building work, both inside and outside, including repairing the river bank/jetty, plumbing and solar energy.

This may be suitalbe for a couple who can help with both decorating and building.

This is in a stunning riverside location and there will be use of the dug out canadian type canoe. The house is on a cycleway and had walking access to the local village.

The house is currently being updated to run completely off the national grid and has a wood-burning stove for the heating.

This would suit a variety of helpers including those familiar with:
Solar power systems and inverters.
Kitchen fitting.
Building work in general.

The length of stay can be varied, depending on your own preferences and the amount of ongoing work to be done.

The accomodation may be in the cottage but could also be in a self contained cam... more inside

I am offering the right person a great opportunity of good quality accommodation in the centre of Edinburgh in return for work in my award-winning tenement garden. Length of stay can be from a couple of weeks up to months, depending on what space I have available. Most of the really hard work has already been done in the garden, but I need help with continued maintainance and with improvements that I would like to make, but that I just do not have the time to do on my own right now. You do not have to be a committed eco-warrior type, just simply somebody with an interest in nature, full of energy, able to use your initiative and be prepared for some cultural development. I promise you will have plenty of free time to explore and take advantage of being in such a great city as Edinburgh.

Work in my garden usually begins from around mid-March until November. Unfortunately, due to the popularity of Edinburgh in August, I am unable to offer accommodation then.

We are a small family run croft on the banks of Loch Shin in Sutherland. Shinness is a small traditional crofting community approximately 4 miles outside of Lairg. We set up Highland Croft Produce at a time when things were difficult for crofters and farmers alike with Foot and Mouth and low lamb prices. All our produce is naturally reared to the highest standard and we believe that quality is not to be compromised.
We also have other animals on the Croft including 2 horses.
We would like help with general croft duties and in addition experienced horse riders to help with schooling and exercising the horses.
If you would like to help us, we have a varied list of chores including lambing, haymaking, shearing other chores include looking after other animals on the croft including hens, goats, dogs and ferrets.
As we are a small croft chores tend to be light leaving plenty of time to explore our beautiful scenery. If you would a chance to enjoy some time working on a croft and wor... more inside

This is a community focused market garden based at Walcot Hall in South Shropshire. Its purpose is to encourage food gardening through inspiration, demonstration and information.

In 2012 work began creating a number of display gardens of different sizes and designs. A self-sufficient garden, large enough to feed two adults and two children over the whole growing year, has already been completed.

Help is needed to manage the current garden and also develop further gardens including a school style garden and smaller gardens designed to inspire those with less available growing spaces or in urban areas.

All the gardens are managed without the use of artificial fertilisers and pesticides and minimal external inputs in general.

Volunteers will have a unique opportunity to learn about growing delicious organic produce in the surrounds of an idyllic country estate set in the beautiful Shropshire countryside.

My name is Hector and I run an equestrian eventing yard in Wiltshire not far from the Badmington Horse Trials.
I would like a helper who has had experience with horses and is not afraid of hard work ! The work will involve mucking out stables, filling hay nets, taking horses out to pasture, riding if good enough, handling young horses and generally mucking in with all that is going on.
I am 24 yrs and running my own business. I event horses for my clients as well as breaking in and schooling young stock.
I enjoy other sports such as football, squash and tennis.
I live in a flat above the stables with my Scottie dog Dougal. The yard is situated on a beautiful estate in the Wiltshire countryside.

I have a spare room in the flat and will provide an evening meal. There will be food with which to make your own breakfast and lunch.

I look forward to hearing from you...

Hello. We're a busy family of 5, with three girls aged 11, 8 and 4 and a half. I (mum) am training to be a midwife which involves long hours away from the house. John (dad) is a secondary school teacher so cannot always get back in time to collect the girls from school.

We live in Nailsworth, a pretty Cotswold town which has shops, cafes, lovely country walks and it's a 10 minute bus ride to Stroud. We have a big garden which your bedroom overlooks (see photo 4). You have your own shower room, wifi and meals included.

In return we need help with the kids and some housework/laundry: 5 hours a day (weekdays only) walking the kids to school in the morning, tidying up, putting dirty clothes into washing machine, putting clean clothes into cupboards, light cleaning. You'd be free until 3pm when you'd collect the girls again and look after them until John or I get home. About 5 hours a day total, Monday- Friday.

This would suit someone who's comfortable with kids, maybe from a ... more inside

Amazing opportunity…

From SEPTEMBER 2014…I require a tutor to teach my 2 children (UK education curriculum with alternative/progressive slant) in ESSAOUIRA, MOROCCO

I am a single parent planning to take my two children (a boy of 12 and girl of 11) out of the UK school system for 6 months to a year, to have a totally different experience. The idea is to live in Essaouira in Morocco and experience a different way of life - away from consumerism, mainstream media, never ending screen addiction and bad British weather - with a view to staying longer.

This will be a trial to see whether an unconventional life abroad may become a longterm commitment. I am a writer & stylist, blogger and DJ and hope to start a business designing while I am living in Morocco. My children are very enthusiastic - we creative people with a love of reading, watching films, listening to music, dancing and cooking delicious homemade vegetarian food.

I feel there is more to life than being a slave to ... more inside
