You must be organised, use the time effectively and be able to work on your own. Conscientious with an eye for detail and have initiative. ...oh, and a open minded sense of humour is a must, we can get a bit silly around here! Experience and confidence with dogs is important. We have 3, two are Australian Cattle Dogs.

The main work this time of year will be tidying the garden, preparing the vegetable garden.

General daily 'housekeeping' housework, ironing and help with cooking and ideally someone who could cook the evening meal once or twice per week.

We also want to continue the work needed on the outside of the house, cleaning and painting.

You will also be looking after our chickens and that also includes cleaning their coop once a week. We also need help with planting and maintaining our fruit and vegetables. It can get very muddy here when we have rain, so outdoor clothing, wellie boots/waterproof footwear are a must and if you can bring your own work gloves woul... more inside

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

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.

If you are intereste... more inside
