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.

We are a 26 acre traditional smallholding in mid-devon. We are renovating the land, which has been largely unused for a century. We keep rare breed sheep, goats, and chickens, and hope to include pigs shortly.

We have a large ongoing task in repairing / cutting back the hedge rows, with a view to repariing the banks, re-planting the gaps, and being able to lay the hedges in future years. We've also begun planting a new wood copse in one field, and plan to plant a traditional orchard in another.

One thing we have struggled with is getting our veg gardening up to scratch. We have experience and enthusiasm, but not enough hours in the day!

Whilst not being registered organic, we self-impose most of that system. We do treat the animals with medicines, but on an evidence-based basis.

Our over-arching approach is one of sustainability.

We would ideally like to find a person or a couple who was prepared to stay for several months of the spring/summer/autumn, and help with cr... more inside

*April/May placement*

Hi we’re Adam and Laura, we have a little boy called Harry and an English Pointer called Ottie. We currently live with Adams parents on a lovely smallholding, named Wickwood in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Wickwood consists of 10 acres of mainly fields and woodland, a farmhouse, cottage style gardens, vegetable patch, and is home to around 20+ sheep and numerous chickens.

We’re just in the process of refurbishing a large barn conversion, which will be our future home and also includes an attached holiday cottage.
We’re looking for one of two helpers, with building or decorating experience to help us complete the house, which should take another 4 weeks.

There are also gardens, woodland and an orchard which we hope to bring back to life and may even turn into a Glamping site.
Accommodation and food will be provided in return.

We are very sociable people and enjoy other peoples company.

We’re keen to find helpers who have skills and... more inside

Hello Dear Helpxers!

Skilled and unskilled workers equally needed all year round.

We have the privilege of managing a beautiful country house that is used for B&B, Retreats and Weddings in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside.

This house was built in 1856 and was a family home originally. In recent years it has been developed as a B&B with 9 bedrooms, a conference and retreat centre and party and wedding venue. The range of events we have here is quite vast but we can tell you all about it when you arrive.

So here is the deal, regarding skilled work, if you have experience in any of the following:

- Carpentary
- Roofing
- Lead windows
- Plumbing
- Building
- Painting
- Gardening
- Cleaning
- Events/hospitality
- Cooking
- Marketing

Then you are especially welcome!


But regardless of who you are, there is plenty of work to be done.
The garden is in need of work at the moment, the spring is coming and its a goo... more inside

We are an elderly couple, man 94years and woman 87 years. We are now carless and pretty much house bound. it would be nice if we had a couple to stay for a short time to cook meals for us to help my wife, to take her out shopping or just a trip out, whilst somebody keeps me company, accompanys me on my walks, I can get a bit wobbly sometimes on my feet! We have a carer coming in daily so no nursing or personal care is required.
Just a change of face and a friendly ear and a kind soul. We tend to need a lot of rest so probably the afternoons would be your own time.
Good traditional english country cooking easily digested for an early evening meal.
Accomodation and food in return for food, transport, companionship, a bit of cooking, light housework. We are in a beautiful village on the edge of the cotswolds close to Oxford, so a good position for sightseeing. Or a super place to unwind and walk in nature or lie on the lawn with a cup of tea and a book.
A calm and sympathetic natur... more inside

September requirement

1 or 2 people or couple required for splitting & stacking & wheelbarrowing firewood (up 2 or 3 steps with plank over it) from front garden to back garden (about 35 metres). Work is outside. So you need to be comfortable with being outside, enjoy physical work, and have a normal degree of everyday fitness. Being tall or male or young does not necessarily mean you will find wood processing easy. You need to be able to work consistently and pace yourself. Our best wood processing helper was a mid-western American woman in her late 20's who had grown up doing it.

Sarah & Guy are a friendly couple in late forties with twin 7 year olds, living in comfortable, spacious house in Headington a suburb of Oxford City. We can offer internet, own largish twin room (sharing if there are two of you), good home prepared food (smoothies for breakfast), we will do your clothes washing and return it dried to you. There may be other (possibly international) guests staying... more inside

We have availability Unfortunately we cannot cater for vegetarians or special diets. Also you must be able to work on your own initiative and have a basic understanding of the English language.
We are looking for a person or a couple who could stay in a bedroom in the main house. We would like them to stay one to two weeks, although longer stays are possible if we get on well. References are essential, either personal or employment if you don't have previous Helpx experience.

We ask for 5 to 6 hours work on 5 days a week in return for all meals and accommodation. The hours are flexible to enable any attraction visits or sightseeing you may wish to do.
This is a working smallholding with a mix of Rare Breed Pigs, Alpacas, Chickens and a large worm breeding unit. There is also a butchery and farm shop where we produce and sell pork produce so it may not be a suitable helpx experience for vegetarians or people with strict religious beliefs.
We are a non-smoking household so o... more inside
