Area: North West WalesA land based eco-centre run by local people on the tip of the Llyn Peninsula in North West Wales. We are currenly building a new visitor centre building using traditional and eco-building methods such as straw bale, oak timber frame and earth walling. We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic people to help build the centre. We have been welcoming volunteers here for the past 8 years from all over the world with up to 10 people resident, staying for up to 3 months. All the many building and organic gardening projects have been carried out entirely by volunteers and school children. There are 5 staff and a small team of local volunteers who manage the centre and the community garden.
Area: EnglandUPDATE OCTOBER 2014 PLEASE NOTE We cannot take any more workers until February 2015 and I am sorry but due to the number of enquiries I get I cannot reply to people who ask to come at other times. (Sadly this affects my rating as a host but please don't let it put you off applying for February.) Please only apply as a couple who are happy to share a double room. Happy Travelling! I run a B&B and holiday cottage business in Worcestershire in the beautiful heart of England. We are on the border of three counties; Worcestershire Shropshire and Herefordshire which are all very rural counties. Ludlow is one of our local towns which is a very attractive historic town famous for food. There are lovely walks and historic places to visit in the area and our own land is a pretty and peaceful place to be! We have an old farmhouse where we have two rooms for bed and breakfast and we have two holiday cottages also in the grounds. We have a large garden and lots of animals. We'd like to invite two workaways (couple sharing a bedroom) to come and stay this winter. We have lots of work to do outside and some decorating work inside. We'd also appreciate help with the animals and cooking. I would be very happy to hear from you if you have experience breaking horses as I would love someone to train my donkeys to pull a trolley! But please only apply as a couple to do this as it will definitely need two people.
Area: MayenneCOUPLE Wanted for Small fairytale castle in FRANCE Available Dates: February 15th, 2013 - April 30th COUPLES ONLY, PLEASE! We are a couple with an 11 year old child, 2 very loving dogs, chickens, 2 ponies, 1 gentle horse, a goat and fish. We are relaxed, flexible, trustworthy and friendly, and look for caretakers who share these same qualities to replace our much-loved current couple (who are moving on after a wonderful 1 year stay). Our chateau is a 150-year-old neo-Renaissance castle on 10 hectares of land in a region famed for its history and beauty. As it is neo-Renaissance (1850’s) and not medieval, it is in remarkably good condition. All of the rooms (4 main rooms + 7 bedrooms) are in a good state of repair as we have undergone a process of updating the chateau since its last restoration in the 1970s. However, given its age, it always needs maintenance in the areas of plumbing, electricity, clearing of gutters, etc. The chateau operates as a family home, occasionally hosting parties and events, and also features a holiday cottage on the grounds. The chateau is located in an idyllic location in the Western Loire Valley of France, and is only 2km away from the nearest town with everything one could want: supermarkets, bakeries, butchers, bars, even its own racecourse. The nearest city is 15km away, and features a high-speed train connection. We are only 1.5 hours SW of Paris by train. We are also equidistant to all of the castles of the Loire Valley, Mont St. Michel, the Normandy Beaches, and Brittany, as well as many attractions locally. The region is very hospitable, and we try to be as well! We care more about the ‘fit’ of the couple, in personality, skills, English-language ability and commitment, than in age. Our previous couple were a vibrant pair in their early 50's. If you are looking for a beautiful French adventure and think that you might fit our requirements, please contact us! We'd love to hear from you.
