We have spent 3 years on major house/garden renovation, trying to make our lifestyle as low impact as we can, but are still needing some help: to clear &terrace & plant a very steep bank, get in place rainwater harvesting system, chicken pen, fruit trees, wood store & lots more. I am offering all food & accommodation for approx 6 hours/day. Day off/ week. Min 1 week. Beautiful location few minutes from beach. Bikes & kayaks available. Wi-fi, TV, table football, red squirrels, lots of birds, fantastic walking. Hard physical work, fit people needed!
We are about 10/15 mins walk from the village shop which is really well stocked. There is also a Post Office/cafe/ bar. Ventnor, a small town, is about 20 mins cycle along the partly closed to vehicles road, or about 1 hour walk along the stunning coastal path. The surfing is apparently quite good when conditions are right.
'Phone reception at the house is poor to non existent, but people seem able to connect to the wifi ok.

We are not currently looking for a helper as we are using the accommodation for staff.

In 2013 our village bought the pub and it is now run by the community providing not only a traditional pub, but also a cafe and Post Office in the heart of the Peak District National Park with walking, mountain biking (bike hire available locally), running, climbing and fishing on the doorstep. The village has good train and bus connections, with various tourist attractions assessable by public transport.

We welcome helpers who can help us in the cafe, bar, kitchen, general repairs (we currently have quite a few painting jobs) or the grounds, where we have an aspiration to create both a kitchen garden and a cutting garden. If you want to get out of the heat our cellar needs painting!

A sole occupancy bunkhouse with small kitchen, including washing machine and bathroom with bath and shower is available. In exchange for 24 hours work a week we provide facilities to make your own breakfast, ... more inside

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 always interested to hear about any specific skills you may be able to offer.

We are on the banks of the beautiful Helford River on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. We have a large woodland garden where we need help to keep the brambles away and stop it turning into wilderness. And 8 hectares of forest garden and young walnut and chestnut trees that need weeding, mulching and loving, and planting of shelterbelts.
Also, we have a variety of barns and outbuildings that need various amounts of restoration/repair if anyone is interested.
There is self-contained accommodation with possibility to self-cater if and when appropriate.
There is a village shop and pub 5 minutes walk away, but anything more is 10 miles away. So a car would be good. Or a bicycle.

Hi/Hello,

I am Vanessa, I am a practising artist, I paint in oil and make sculptures too.

I built my house last year and there are still lots of finishing off things to do such as carpentry, snagging, painting and cleaning. I need a HelpXer from now, until March 6th.

I'm looking for a single person (male or female) to help me. 25 hours a week would be great, but timing is negotiable depending your interests.

In exchange, I'm offering a very comfortable ensuite bedroom in my home. Food is provided and I invite you to cook occasionally too. There is unlimited Wi-Fi access in my home too.

I have two wonderful cats that enjoy being around.

Rock is small village on the North Cornish Coast near numerous surfing beaches in this area. Rock Beach, Padstow and the Camel Estuary are beautiful places to spend your time and within 15 minutes walk from my home.

Please send me a message if this sounds appealing to you.

Best wishes,


Vanessa.

We live in a beautiful village called Plockton in the Scottish Highlands.

We're open to the public and have a 2.5km walk that needs maintaining and developing. The property has gardens both flower and veg in development. We run events from time to time and will soon have a tea hut up and running. There are lots of different projects running here all the time, we eat well and work hard.

Needing volunteers, preferably a couple or 2 friends but single also okay, to come and trade their time helping us work the land prepping the gardens and be a part of the household. The work includes clearing and grass cutting, planting and building new features around the property as well as cutting wood ready for winter and building cold frame glasshouses.

We have a good sailing community in the village and lots of hill walking to be done. We also are now creating branded products on site such as screen printing and creating anything we can with what ever we have. This is a creative garden... more inside

**NOT CURRENTLY HOSTING FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE**

We live in a decent sized old house in Layer de laye, close to Colchester (Britains oldest recorded town)

Our village has two pubs, a shop, a woodland a few minutes walk away. There is a frequent bus service in to Colchester. And we can give lifts too.

We are non smokers. If you smoke you can do so in the garden.

Our house is a historic listed building, 300 years old in parts. On site we have a koi pond, a swimming pool, hot tub, plenty of weights and exercise equipment, and a bike. If you like activities there will be plenty to amuse yourself with.

We are a couple in our early 60's looking for a little help around the home, nothing too challenging. Gardening, light house work etc for a few hours a day.

You are especially welcome if you hold any marketing skills and can help with Rob's photography.

In return we'd be happy to offer meals and a nice private room.

We are new to helpX, it was recommended... more inside
