Hi i don't live in London but about 30 min away by train from waterloo.The nearest town to me is Woking i live in a small village knaphill about 2.5 miles from Woking. There are a few things to do around the small bungalow outside like rebuild a small retaining wall and rose arch that has rotted and a bit to clear up inside as i might sell it eventually. It would be good to meet people and show them around. I've done lots of volunteer work for helpx so i know that hosts rarely take you out to see anything of the area. First thing to do is fix up a room for people to stay in. Maybe it will push me into being more active now I'm retired.room and food included 4-5 hours a day weekends free.

Hi,
I will not be hosting this summer but things might change...you can always contact me...
I recently moved above my shop which is in Torquay 2 min from the sea with my two daughters. We also have a cocker spaniel. The shop is open 5 days a week and I need some help with the kids and the dog and maybe the shop. Both of the kids are at school from 8.45 till 15.15 and I don't need anyone every day. But sometimes I will need help at weekends. There are no difficult task around here - just helping a bit with the household and the kids and maybe the shop. If you love the sea side and would love to be part of a little family - please get in touch. We need help from April. As the kids are young I prefer people who can stay longer periods as too much change might upset them. Ideal is 3 to 6 months.

Looking forward to meeting you:)

Anita

Ps..I used to own a hotel so the reviews are from that period. I do not own the hotel any more.

We are a couple from Cornwall who are helping to run the family's small holding. We are fun loving, hard working individuals who are enjoying implementing Permaculture designed buildings, allotment, polytunnel, animal areas, forest garden and ponds. We have a large variety of projects on the go from building sheds to 12v solar/wind systems and rocket mass heaters to apple tree guilds. We are interested in planting edible/medicinal plants and already have some on the go ready to harvest for tintures! Our work varies between building, gardening, animals and holiday lets. Exciting :)
Nick normally works full-time at home finishing and experimenting with new ideas whilst Rosie works full-time as a primary school teacher.
Nicks family also live at home, so there's always lots going on and we often eat communally :)

Accommodation is in a cosy caravan with a beautiful view, surrounded by trees.
Our key aim is to put projects in place and then educate about the many benefits of l... more inside

We live in a 16th thatched cottage in the countryside. We share it with spiders.. It has a wild cottage garden that we would love to have help with. The front garden needs digging and clearing of brambles etc and the back garden needs the same. You need to be fit and prepared to get muddy and dirty! We can offer accomodation in our old cottage and meals. I can also offer felt making workshop. We have a shower and bath. Cosy bedroom. A driver with own transport would be good, but not essential, as some rubbish to take to tip. One friendly dog and a cat. Wifi weak. A two week stay would be ideal. Would prefer smokers to smoke outside. Immediate start, please as trying very hard to tidy up prior to selling. Thank you.
