Note: I also need someone to index and categorise a lot of articles which I will be using as reference material for a book Iím writing (see `web 3` link).

We have a large garden and are (almost) self-sufficient in vegetables. We have been growing produce for ourselves, with a small excess for sale outside our house, for the past 25 years. We also have fruit trees and established flower borders and 8 chickens.

As well as gardening, chopping wood, housework and cooking, we also need help with general maintenance, carpentry and some electrical work. It would also be good to have someone who is experienced with 2 stroke engine maintenance.

For 2019 we have a major digging job - removing a large amount of bamboo, This is heavy work and might suit a couple, or 2 men coming here together.

We are located in the beautiful village of Abbotsbury, in West Dorset, southern England, with views of the sea (20 minutes walk away).

Our beautiful meditation centre is in a Grade II listed Victorian building in a quiet green part of town. It's only a short 10 mintue walk to the the town centre and to a beach that stretches along the coast and has lovely, white sand.

We are a modern Buddhist community and offer structured classes on meditation, mindfulness and we also offer retreats. In exchange for 25hrs of work per week working visitors are free to attend any of these classes or events.

Please note: Since KMC Wales is a Buddhist Centre, visitors are asked to abide by the Centre Rules, which are: no killing any living being (including insects); no stealing; no lying; no sexual misconduct; no taking drugs, alcohol or cigarettes. We are also a vegetarian community, so meat is not allowed to be prepared or consumed on the premises.

We need someone ASAP to help with work in the basement and digging in the garden (damp proofing the house). You can take regular tea breaks and we offer refreshments.

Please read this completely and carefully so that we're able to offer you what you need. This is a lovely area to visit.
Please email initially.

We are looking for 2 people whose first language is English and who are over 26 yrs, to help with gardening. Some of the jobs are heavy.


While wanting to be welcoming, we don`t offer much in the way of entertainment, but will suit independent people who have their own transport, and are wanting to explore the area themselves on their days off. Buses are not great round here which is why people with a car generally have an easier time . (Tunbridge Wells is an interesting town to visit. There are some nice attractions nearby.)
We provide 3 meals a day, but if you want to cook for yourself sometimes, you are very welcome.


Also, there might be some painting and decorating, and perhaps a few handyman tasks.

This homestay will suit people who are over 26, and whose first language is English, or whose English is very good. We ... more inside

Accommodation in our lowly but characterful three hundred year old fen edge cottage. Its scruffy and often a bit dirty as I'm decluttering the house and improving a horse yard Iíve just taken over these days. But summer is still here and its beautiful if you like animals and countryside and medieval cities and scruffy old cottages.

Its exactly halfway along the road from Cambridge to Newmarket, the capital of horseracing. Itís 7 miles from each centre. That takes about 15 mins in flowing traffic and considerably more in rush hour.
Urgently in need of helpers at the moment Please come

There is a bus into town(s) from the corner and there is also the park and ride service which is cheaper and quicker than the regular bus which is nearby so we can always run you to or from there in our car.

We are a couple in our mid sixties. I'm a semi-retired freelance English language teacher, trainer. My hope is to care for retired horses along with my own. I also have 4 cats, a dog, a... more inside

We are a family home comprising of 6 of us (us and our 4 grown up tribe who stay at home sometimes) coming and going , 2 dogs, a rabbit and 3 sheep ecolawn mowers. There is usually lots going on and we like that. We are looking for an individual or couple that are both happy to muck in and be hands on. Short stays are fine, longer stays considered. There are lots of things to do inside the house and out, but we are quite relaxed and open to new ideas. It would be hugely beneficial to us if you have any skills such as carpentry. At this time of year, we need help with a variety of tasks, from strimming and brush cutting, to collecting and preparing firewood. The large garden is always in need of weeding and pruning. Cooking and cleaning are always a welcome addition.
We are at the beginning of growing food and making the most of the land but would like help to build on this. There is also plenty of space for camping, definitely welcome skills to help to build a compost loo, compost... more inside

I have recently returned home to the family farm and need your help:) Come and have a wonderful summer on our farm.
We have 50 acres of grassland with 2 jersey house cows. A small herd of shorthorn beef cows and wiltshire horn sheep. We have a couple of glouceser old spot pigs, some chickens and a veg patch. The farm is highly diversified with craft/artists workshops, a campsite, a cafe, and a river swimming club. We have a small school on site and we do lots of farm education with school trips and also a regular farm school.
There is also 150 acres of conventional arable land that I am managing under countryside stewardship with an aim to encourage wild pollinators, bats and birds.
Volunteers would be expected to work 25 hours a week and can stay for 3 weeks or longer. Jobs can vary and can include gardening, working in the tearoom and on the coffee van, collecting subs at the river swimming club, looking after the campsite, and working with school groups.

I am always looking for someone (or two) with basic landscaping skills, and basic carpentry skills. I enjoy having couples to stay, as they are a bit more independent. This summer I am looking for a couple (or singleton) to help me in the garden as I am having an outdoor dining room constructed and there will be some tidying up to do. There will also be a little interior decorating to do. I would supervise and work alongside you.

I had a very positive experience five years ago with my first HelpXer who in 10 weeks transformed
my garden from a builder's site into a lovely lawned gadren.Since then I have had a regular stream of marvellous young people.

I am a good cook. You will have a room and bathroom to yourself in my comfortable house. I am quite social and will include you in the social network in the area.

My house is a few miles from the coast, nature reserve etc and these are a short bike ride away. Yoxford is a charming village with 2 pubs, 2 good restaurants,and ... more inside
