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

Richard Glyn Foundation - Gaunt's House

We are currently particulary looking for 2 Residential Volunteers who wish to stay for minimum 3-6 months (from February 2019) to assist our head gardener and someone with carpentry experience to project manage the completion of our roundhouse.


Set in acres of beautiful land with a Georgian/ Edwardian period house built in the 18th Century by Sir Richard Glyn. The Richard Glynn Foundation (a charity) was set up to offer opportunities for profound learning and seeks to instil values of community, honesty and openness.

Based on a small country estate, we have a Victorian walled garden, which is being developed over time into an oasis of food production and a wildlife haven. We have inherited a much neglected garden and a lot of the work this year is in restoration, as well as trying to build new areas and grow new things in a more natural, sustainable and friendly manner.

We grow vegetables, herbs and flowers using organic gard... more inside

We are currently seaking a volunteer or volunteer couple to help us run our hostel from April through to September 2019. A minimum period of two months will suit both ourselves and our prospective volunteers interests best. Please do not reply with an offer of less than two months.

We are a modest (14 bed) backpackers hostel, in a beautiful country location close to the Eden Project and the town of St Austell in mid Cornwall.
The hostel is immediately adjacent to our cottage and utilises an existing complex of a stable yard and buildings. These have been sensitively converted into two dorms, a common area, shower block and courtyard kitchen.
We also have a modest growing area for organic soft fruits and vegetables.
The volunteer or volunteer couple are offered accommodation in our cottage with their own room and bed. Full board is provided with free use of telephone (for UK landline calls) and wifi. You can find out more about us from our website, edensyard.co.uk

Larcombe copse is an old unused slate quarry in a beautiful valley with a lake, stream, wildflower grasslands, woodland and pasture. I have a two and a half acre field with a caravan for temporary accommodation and the makings of a field shelter/lean-to for storage and to double up as an art studio.

I am looking for help to finish the construction alongside general maintenance and planting a range of trees, shrubs, herbs and vegetables, introducing bees, chickens etc. all in all to create as diverse and beautiful a place as possible:)

I live by the river in Totnes and can provide food and accommodation and transport to the field which is ten or so minutes away. There is also the option to stay up there temporarily as I am making the caravan comfortable with a burner and a gas shower:)

We live in sunny Bude, North Cornwall and our home is just a 2 minute walk to the beaches and south west coastal path. We love travelling and have volunteered through helpx along our way and had some unique experiences. My husband is a musician† and we both really enjoy meeting new people from all walks of life and countries.We are in the process of completing a timber frame annexe to let out this summer and are looking for someone with experience and happy to help with general building, carpentry, painting, plastering etc and some garden work. You will have your own room and we are happy to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner in return for 5-6 hours work a day with weekends off. We would prefer you to stay for at least a week. You will have plenty of time to enjoy Bude, go surfing, walking, cycling etc. Everything is a short walk away so you will not need a car.
The nearest train station is Exeter where you can get a bus to Bude if you need to.

**SORRY NOT CURRENTLY TAKING HELPERS**
we have recently started doing a B and B in addition to our usual business In the bothy that adjoins our house so help with change overs is great in addition to other bits and pieces. The changeover usually only takes a couple of hours and then just doing the laundry etc, this with walking our wee dogs is going to be a typical day. Itís a small bothy so easy to clean etc. Pretty easy going :)

About our place
Leckmelm Farm is situated just south if Ullapool in the north west highlands. Itís possible to travel in a day trip from here to places like Applecross, The Isle of Skye, Cape wrath, Tounge,, Kintail (Eilean Donnan castle), the ferry to the Iisle of Lewis is from Ullapool and takes around 3 hours a crossing. Leckmelm is a good base to have. (Scott can usually take volunteers on a day trip if here for 2 weeks or more)

We want you to enjoy your time here, at the same time as us getting some help.

Who are we?

***Recent work - This week we have been clearing rushes to create space for a small veggie garden. Work to be done right now includes helping create raised beds, ditching, more clearing of rushes, clearing paths and maybe some fencing.***


We have a 12 acre croft situated in the main village of Craighouse on the beautiful Isle of Jura. The island is home to about 230 people and we're lucky to be part of a great community here.

The land has never been productively used (it was only created as a croft 10 years ago) and is currently a mix of woodland and rough ground.

There is a lot of potential for the land but initially we need help clearing rushes and bracken to create space for a veg garden, digging ditches, mending tracks and cutting wood. People with chainsaw / coppicing experience or the ability to use large, petrol strimmers / weed whackers particularly welcome.

We will also be looking to paint the outside of the house this spring, when the weather allows. In r... more inside
