We need help from the middle of April 2017 onward and for the rest of the year and are looking for like minded people to help on the farm, with the yurts, the family, the logs, the kitchen garden and the wholesome cooking. We welcome couples as well as single travellers.

We moved here to pursue dreams of holistic sustainable living, escaping the rat race, and living a life more connected to each other, family, the local community, and nature.

This dream has very much been realised and we work together on Sunny Brow projects, eating wholesome cuisine and enjoying being in close proximity to nature with our 3 children. Come and join us to experience and share what we feel so lucky to have.

Our projects include renovating the farm buildings into apartments, managing the woodlands and log-fueled boiler, renting yurts to holiday makers and newly launched is the holistic retreat, offering alternative therapies and activities to our guests.

Our family consists of 2 lively b... more inside

We are a Czech-Canadian/German couple, living with our lovely baby-boy and our cat in Lancaster, near the Lake District in the North-West of England. We make our living as a professor and a writer. Our terraced house with a little garden is close to the river Lune, with lots of greenery around.

We are living away from our families in the Czech Republic and Germany, so we are missing the support by grandparents/aunties/uncles/in-laws. We would be particularly happy about Czech or German speaking volunteers, since we hope that our son will speak those languages, on top of English (which we speak at home).

About 80% of the help we need is housework and cooking. Only 20% is childcare. We looking for someone to help around the house so that we can spend more time with our baby (rather than we cooking and cleaning after one more person LOL!). In exchange, we offer a large bedroom with ensuite bathroom. All volunteers have said it was the nicest room they've ever stayed in. We often... more inside

Help required by a retired artist/writer and poet, with a young outlook and attitude who likes to paint, write, draw and read. Due to suffering from M.E. for many years, my strength and endurance are limited.
I do have a helper who does a few hours every week, but some jobs get left to pile up, like all my wardrobes, drawers need sorting out and organising as I must admit, I am not an organised person myself.In addition, my many books need sorting out and I would love a list of what I actually have! Also, I am finding it difficult at the moment to cook nourishing meals for myself, ( I eat very little meat) and my helper often doesn't have the time to do these.
I am extremely easy-going, quiet, with a good sense of humour. I rise early, go to bed at lunchtime for 2-3 hours for a much needed sleep, then up and around until between 6-7pm depending on how my health is on the day. There I watch television for a couple of hours and then read. I have a spare bedroom, with a single bed, w... more inside

We are very happy to host families with children as our children are very sociable and love to play with others. We have space for a family with up to three children (possibly more). We are considering homeschooling our children when they reach school age and would welcome home/un/world-schooling families that we can learn about this from and who could spend time helping the children learn through their interests.

We would love to learn Spanish so would welcome Spanish speakers who would be comfortable teaching the children a little Spanish through play and singing.

We are former helpXers ourselves and live in a four-bedroomed house with a largeish garden in a countryside village in Essex, 30 minutes by train from central London. We are now a family of four (Andrew and Kerri - both in our thirties, Tom and Edward - both 4). Kerri is a (sometime) primary and TEFL teacher and Andrew works in London. We'd like to offer a warm welcome to people who would like to live as part of ... more inside

We moved here in the Summer of 2014. At that time it was 15 acres of bare land used for traditional agricultural purposes. The smallholding is a predominantly gentle North facing slope in a secluded valley with it's own unusual micro climate.

Since then we have planted over 1200 trees, started developing a vegetable garden and built various buildings including the small cabin that we now live in.

We are entirely OFF GRID. Our loo is a composting one, we have electricity from solar panels and water is from our burn on the land. We do have a hot shower which feels like luxury after working outside!

We have got a basic infrastructure in place, but we have so many things we are working on, from a new tree bog, to fencing, to development of swales and ponds as well as gardening and livestock management. We will try and provide a variety of jobs so you don't get bored, and to give you an idea of what off-grid smallholding life really entails.

We would expect you to work... more inside
