The Presbytery is an old vicarage now used as our home with a large garden, tennis court, field and some woodland. We - Penny (now retired from working in our National Health Service) and Frank (retired from working in education) - are an older but active couple and we will welcome anyone to help us maintain the property (outside and inside). The garden and outside areas - especially around the tennis court (which may be used) and field need clearing of undergrowth and adjacent trees pruned back and needs general upkeep. Inside the house needs some decorating and other general maintenance work. Penny has some health issues and cannot tolerate cigarette smoke, so there cannot be smoking anywhere in the house.

The Presbytery is in the East Sussex countryside (classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty) and public transport is quite limited. However, we do have two bicycles that can be borrowed and there are beautiful walks nearby. We can reach the railway station in abo... more inside

Are you available from early August 2019 and interested in staying for 3-4 weeks? I am looking for a disciplined and hard-working person to help with a range of jobs in the house (including food preparation and cooking) and garden. I run Air BnB accommodation and 1:1 English language courses from my farmhouse in the Norfolk countryside, a short drive from the beautiful city of Norwich. In return I can offer a nice environment, good, home-cooked food (vegetarians welcome) and help with your English as I am also a qualified and very experienced English teacher, having run my own language training company for several years. If you are preparing for an English exam or need better English for job applications, this could be a good opportunity for you. Please note you will need to provide references either from the HelpX website or elsewhere (current and last job). I look forward to hearing from you.

We are a family of four, with two boys, aged 3 and a half and 10 months. We are easy going, and enjoy the quiet life. We look forward to meeting and experiencing people from other cultures. Holly is English, Andy is Australian. We are happy to help people learning English.

We live in a mobile home / static caravan in a small community not far from Glastonbury (~10 miles), in the countryside. We are keen gardeners, and have an allotment nearby. We are a vegan household, and love cooking and sharing food.

We have been helpx volunteers several times around the world and are keen to get some help ourselves!
We are away for the month of June but would love it if someone would come and house sit. Water the garden where we are away. We are just down the road.
after that we need help with general chores and sawing up wood cleaning/painting, keeping the baby entertained, and we love being cooked for! Help is also needed at the allotment. We would expect around 4 hours work a day... more inside

We are a small family beef Farm, owned and run by father and son (aged 94 and 61). We now need help on the farm in busy times, tractor driver would be really helpful, but also help in the garden and general support to 94 year old in the house (no personal care, but 'checking' and company, and support). Some cooking and cleaning would be helpful. Hours can be very flexible as there are other family members around to assist. Open to a couple if one could help on the farm, and one in the house or garden. But sole applicants considered with an interest in one or the other.
Farm is in a very small village, I mile from nearest bus stop, but only 3 miles from centre of historic city of Bath .Bikes available. Beautiful bike rides and walking on the doorstep. Bath, Cotswolds, or Wiltshire villages to explore.

The garden is situated in the picturesque village of Gissing on the Norfolk and Suffolk border approximately 20 miles south of the city of Norwich and 5 miles north of the market town of Diss. There are good rail and bus links to Norwich and London. Gabriel’s Garden is a small (approximately 2/3 acre) but quite literally ‘growing’ business, we specialize in growing a wide variety of flowers and foliage's renowned for their seasonality, fragrance and simple beauty to use in our onsite floristry studio.

We are looking for helpers to stay and help with a variety of jobs from February to November to help keep the garden growing: weeding and ground work, sowing, planting and at certain times harvesting. As a guide we aim for 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week. The aim and ethos of the business is to be as sustainable as possible, we don’t use chemical sprays as we want to encourage a natural biodiversity within the garden, which means the majority of the work is done by hand.

**WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A JOINER/CARPENTER, PLUMBER, ELECTRICIAN AND A COOK OR A COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE!

I am restoring and renovating a large Victorian house in Central London and am looking for help immediately from now through the summer. It is a family home (I am a single mum with a eight year old son).

We live in Limehouse in East London, 2 minutes away from the station. Limehouse DLR is 2 stops (every 2 min) away from Bank (Central Line), Tower Hill (Circle and District Line) and Canary Wharf (Jubilee Line). It takes 20min to get to Oxford Circus on the tube. And obviously we are close to all the arty, young energy of East London.

On your own time, you can explore all the amazing things in London etc, but unfortunately, as I'm a busy working mom, I won't be providing any tour guidance. We like happy, fun people, and the odd glass of wine, but no partying in the house as this is a family home. No smokers please.

We are looking for a few energetic, ... more inside

Attractive rustic old Norfolk Barns that I have been developing, on a shoe string, since 1991. In 1997 I built an eco-cabin and extended it in 2004 with a 50square metre straw-bale,on rubber tyres buildingy. We have a reed-bed purification system, and have started harvesting water. There is a large vegetable garden which I have developed along Permaculture principles with composting on site cf. Thanks to a former volunteer we now have a wonderful polytunnel. I am a member of the Permaculture association which has always been a source of inspiration.Sadly I am without large animals For many years I ran animal assisted activities, but recently have
given the ponies and pigs to a wonderful project working with city school children in a residential setting, giving them an experience of the outdoors. cf Ringsfield Hall Eco-centre near Beccles.

We have moved into some barns which we converted half into a home and half into an engineering workshop. We are surrounded by spectacular countryside with opportunity for walking and cycling. You would have lots of opportunity to meet people as there are always friends and family visiting so it is a fantastic place to practice english. There is a train station 3 miles away. We have four lovely children aged 10, 9 and 7, and 1, chickens and a vegetable garden.
We have a bedroom and bathroom at the other end of our house so you would have privacy and not be woken up early! We hope to have people who enjoy spending time with children, can help us in the garden and poly tunnel, and help running our busy house hold. (Hanging up washing, help in the kitchen etc)

Hello!

I am looking for someone to come in May/June to give me help with family life.

My three kids (13, 10, 5) do not go to regular school. So I need some extra help around the house. It may be help with tidying or planting in the garden, taking the youngest to the park or help with clearing up the kitchen. Or shopping or - anything really - so I can try to get a moment of work done!

Your room in the attic is newly done and you will have a top of the range Bo Concept sofa-bed. However some of the house is still quite chaotic - just to warn you!

We are an easy-going family, every day is different. If that sounds as if it would suit you - come stay! I'm looking for four hours help a day with weekends off - though occasionally I would love you to babysit in the evening, part of your hours, of course.

We live in South East London zone 2 in a quiet leafy conservation zone called Telegraph Hill. Nearest overground train is New Cross Gate and Queens Road Peckham. The ne... more inside
