    Double vaccination ESSENTIAL!

    I live on a beautiful island on the Thames, in Surrey, with my dog Macey and have the river at the bottom of my garden. This is an incredible, unique environment and perfect for those that enjoy being on or near the water and being very close to nature in a peaceful and relaxing and quiet environment.

    Central London with its bright lights is only 18 miles away and easily accessible by train. This is a great location for anyone wanting to head to London for sightseeing, galleries, or to explore.

    The surrounding area offers the beautiful Surrey countryside, well known for cycle routes and amazing walking opportunities. I have bikes that you can use to explore I also have kayaks for exploring the river and a gym in the garden that Workaways can use.

    This really is a great place to come and experience life and learn about culture, history and language etc.

    So this is what I can offer you.....

    What am I looking for?

    I am looking for two people / a couple who have lots of energy and motivation.

    The house is always needing a little loving maintenance throughout the year. Inside and out.

    I am looking for WorkAways with a practical mind and hands-on skills, and those eager to learn.
    Previous experience with how tools work really useful including how to chop wood. But if you haven't, I am happy to show you how.

    You must be really comfortable with dogs. You will need to understand dogs and know what dogs need. I only have the one but she likes to know who is in control. She responds best to people who communicate with her and who have lots of love and energy for dogs. So many Workaways write that they have 'experience' with dogs but then ignore my dog when they arrive. Or only play with her when they can be bothered. She needs more than this.......She is a pointer and needs a lot of stimulation and fun challenges on long walks.

    Anyone who is passionate about food, cooking and creating dishes or recipes are more than welcome to get in contact.

    You will need lots of energy and (importantly) be self motivated. If you see a task that needs doing you will be happy to crack on and do it. You won’t wait to be asked. You will think ‘outside the box’.

    You will be a morning person and happy to get up early and embrace the day with a list of tasks.

    You will be tidy and organised and seeing tasks through to the end will be important to you.

    Ideally you will have excellent reviews, however if you have the right skills and attitude, this may not be so important.

    I live in Shepperton, Surrey UK

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks 🙏🏻

    I can offer a lovely home environment. The Surrey countryside is well known for its amazing cycling opportunities. You can cycle to historic castles and palaces and spend days on tow path cycle routes.
    I have kayaks in the garden for use on the river at the bottom of my garden.
    There is a gym in the garden with rowing machine and weights and an outside gym station.
    London is accessible within an hour. The nearest train station is Shepperton. Walton On Thames is close by - around 3 miles.
    Hamhaugh Island has a unique community feel, where we gather regularly throughout the year, particularly in the summer, to celebrate events and enjoy our amazing environment. We love visitors and they are always welcome!
    If I have time I can help you with your language skills. This can be discussed beforehand during a call or video chat. Many thanks 🙏🏻

    You need be self motivated with energy and a yearning to see the project through to completion.
    A focused and passionate helper - not scared to get you hands dirty.
    I am looking for Workaways with experience in maintaining gardens! I always need some hedge cutting, digging, fence maintenance and weeding, grass cutting etc. as well as sowing and planting at different times of the year. You will have experience with using tools.
    You may be asked to give me a hand with decorating as I might need the inside or outside of the house painting (walls, ceilings and windows). This will depend on the time of the year and would include sanding and filling, sealing and undercoating as well as top coating. If you don't have the experience then a real willingness to learn is crucial!
    If you are good on a Mac then you can help answer some of my tech issues.
    Cooks and food lovers also please apply....sharing ideas of food and recipes is a great way to spend some time.
    I would prefer 4-5 hours per day in the mornings and then you are more than welcome to go and explore and do your own thing. Really happy to negotiate timing flexibility if you have plans.
    I am looking for someone who understands dogs and happy to have a great relationship with my dog - as she loves long varied walks.

    You will be staying in a floating studio on the river or in a double bedroom in my house. You will be responsible for keeping your space clean and tidy. You will be expected to ‘muck in’ and help as a team inside the house with cooking, cleaning and tidying. I will provide food and you will share the cooking, so a confident cook is important.
