We have a lovely small holding which is half broadleaved woodland, half pasture, with a stream running right by the house, 2 ponds, large veggie garden, orchard, greenhouse, sheep and dogs! (See photos below of a 2011 help-xer with one of our lambs and 2013 help-xers cleaning out the pond!)

We would like help with woodland management, gardening, preparation and maintenance of grazing land, weeding, planting, harvesting, general maintenance, perhaps light decorating, ironing when it's raining....and whatever crops up! There may occasionally be some work with our sheep and sometimes looking after our adorable dogs! We expect some help around the house such as washing up after dinner and perhaps cooking the occasional meal.

We offer accommodation in a refurbished 16th century cottage which is connected to the main house (see photo of room below). This will mean help-xers have their own sleeping & bathroom area tho' occasionally we may have other guests staying. You will s... more inside

What are your plans for July/Aug/September or October 2020? We now have volunteers until later in the summer but we shall still need some extra assistance for both the holiday cottages and in the garden to welcome our visitors from mid-July onwards

We are in the Highlands of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. We hope to hear from you.

Do you want to explore the Isle of Skye and the North West Highlands? Attadale would suit either two friends or a couple as space is limited. Ideally for a minimum of three weeks, preferably one month please. Last year we had at least three volunteers returning for a second time, which must be a recommendation! Check out their reviews below.

Beautiful estate with large garden open to the public and four holiday cottages situated in wild country near the Isle of Skye. Garden open from April to October. Holiday cottages available for visitors from March.

Train station 2 minutes walk away. Limited internet available. Food is provided ... more inside

*Update Feb 2020 - Hi there, Iím just starting to think about getting the garden ready for spring. It can still be a little cold, but Iím open to hosting from mid-March. The main work will be ground preparation, tree planting and protecting, and weeding, thanks!*

My son and I have lived on this smallholding for more than 15 years. We have a cottage, a rustic bothy/music rehearsal room where sometimes couchsurfers and helpx guests have stayed, a workshop for art and creative projects. My son now lives in the city, so itís a quiet place apart from visits from my neighbours. I enjoy crafts, I make things from beach wood, and I am a keen musician.

The land is approximately 1 hectare, I have planted over 500 trees and they are just starting to mature. There is a vegetable garden and a polytunnel (greenhouse). I try to grow all my vegetables and I am still learning about preserving vegetables to be as self-sufficient as possible. I have a cat that lives outside and a very energeti... more inside

Student Accommodation and Digital Music Studio in Oxford -
†† † Hi there - I have 2 houses† where I provide accommodation for International students - I have 2 or 3 students in each house - Oxford is a great international and multi-cultural study centre and its easy to feel at home in this city. The students who live with me are either Uni / postgrad or researchers - they are usually independent and busy with their studies/research - so this is not like a hostel -but they are happy to have a chat when they are around.

I need a helper to assist me in both houses in basic house-keeping duties - cleaning, some house repairs, gardening, food preparation, etc. † In connection with the studio, maybe some basic IT work. No skills are required for either job, however your english level should be enough to know the names of basic cleaning and building tools. You should learn these before arrival. The work is more suitable for a male person and I can only accept one person at a time. ... more inside

Ettrick is a beautiful relatively remote rural location just over one hour`s drive from both Edinburgh and Carlisle. I am flexible about arrangements and look forward to ensuring my visitor`s stay is rewarding, in exchange for some help with the house, garden and one lovely old horse.

I'd really like some help with painting some rooms in the house and generally keeping the garden tidy.

Due to location a car is important. There is a pub 3 miles away and the nearest shopping half an hours drive.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards Kevin

We bought a derelict smallholding not so long ago and moved in with all of our animals. We have a challenge doing it up at the same time as working and looking after the animals. We would love to welcome anyone who would help us tick a few jobs off the long list of things to do and get this place looking and working well again.
There are a variety of activities from animal care to restoring an organic vegetable patch, through to some outbuilding maintenance. The jobs will be as varied as the animals we keep.
We have alpacas, chickens, sheep, ducks, rabbits, cats, dogs and peafowl.
We have 7 cria due in 2019, so there will also be plenty of opportunities to help out with alpaca births and mating.

The accommodation is somewhat rustic, but that is only because we haven`t yet finished restoring the bungalow. You will be given an upstairs room and will share our downstairs shower room. We currently sleep in the living room. Upstairs is very much unfinished; it is nearly completely... more inside

We need help with our animals (several horses, many chickens and 1 playful friendly small dog), the fields, the garden and in the house IN EXCHANGE for all food, accommodation, a lot of riding for someone experienced, a beautiful area and the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people.
