Area: EnglandThank you for your interest. Having enjoyed "workawayers" helping us with our bed and breakfast over the last two years, we have recently moved to a large traditional thatched house in Devon. We no longer run the bed and breakfast but do still have a small holding with sheep and chickens. There is also a lot of outside work and gardening as well as decorating. We would welcome help, particularly if you have skills in these areas, in return for accommodation and food, in a friendly environment. We are looking for volunteers for short stays of 1 - 3 week periods, as we hope this will enable more volunteers to experience a stay in Devon. Some volunteers may wish to plan more than one placement during their stay in the UK. We have several spare bedrooms, so as a 'workawayer' you would have your own bedroom and share the family bathroom. We are located in a village 10 miles from the city of Exeter and there is a bus route that runs to the city and the coast every 30 minutes. The village has a friendly traditional pub, restaurants, shop, hairdressers, church and village hall. Exeter is an attractive busy university city with good shopping, bars cinemas, theatres and other historical attractions. The coast (5 minutes away by car) offers great walking and opportunities for water sports including sailing, kite surfing and windsurfing. Exploring the area. As a volunteer you will be able to explore the area by cycling, walking and bus. We have good bikes that you can use but be aware that it will take about 45 minutes to cycle to Exeter and about 30 minutes to cycle to the coast. Buses are available on the main road outside the house. These will take you to either the coast Sidmouth, Beer and Lyme Regis or the city of Exeter at a cost of £5 for a single return journey or £7.50 for an all day ticket for as many journeys as you wish. We will always help with transport when we have the time.
Area: CataloniaWe are a catalane couple who lives in the beautiful area of “The Pre-Pyrenees”, province of Lleida. We live quietly and without pollution in a “Wild Spain” area. We are in the centre of historical village of Camarasa, and just 1 hour and half drive from Pyrenees, Barcelona, Tarragona and its beaches. We like the simple, quiet life in countryside, in a touristic area. We have a house and an orchard with olive trees. We work as teachers but only at the afternoons. Pau is musician and he teaches traditional catalane music too. Rosa makes a lot of traditional catalane and Mediterranean recipes, because she loves cooking with whole ingredients and in a Mediterranean way. She makes jams and several types of traditional Spanish foods. We speak fluently Catalan and Spanish, English and a little French, we love to chat and exchange experiences in front of a glass of wine or a cup of tea, or coffee! If you like to play music, we play catalane instruments as “tarota” but also double bass, flute, guitar... (Pau is the teacher and the rest of us students, but we like to play together). At this time we are looking for a volunteer for the any period of the year to help Rosa mother with simple tasks such as general housekeeping and language practice for all of us but overall for Rosa daughter. We have a vegetable garden and an orchard, so we need help with gardening as well.
Area: Leipzig, SaxonyWe are an autonomous house project that provides rent-free live/work space for its members, as well as services to the neighborhood. In the Coworking space, parents can work and bring their kids along. Volunteers babysit. In the Café/Bar, we offer dinner on thursdays and breakfast on sundays. Volunteers prepare food or man the bar. Or renovate! :-) We offer food and lodging in exchange for a 25 hour week*. We try to schedule two days off per week, but these are not necessarily on weekends. * 5 hours are typical domestic tasks that you would be doing in your own apartment anyway (cooking, cleaning, shopping).
Area: Tahmoor New South Wales 90k from SydneyHi, We live in a house that is nearly 200 years old and when we purchased it the garden was very neglected, house still needs work too. We need a hand to get the place looking good. We currently need help with painting, gardening and rebuilding a deck. By Australian standards it is an historic old home and we would like to do the setting justice. We have recently retired and we need a hand in the 1 acre garden and round the house inside and out to get it the way we would like. We try to make your time here fun with trips to a local animal sanctuary and the occasional weekend down the south coast.
