    We both love to travel and in fact, took a middle-aged-gap year about 7 years ago, so we know what it's like to want to see the world - we found that it's great to see the sights but the most memorable things are always about the people we met. We are now experienced hosts having had 50+ helpers in the last few years, we really enjoy having people come to stay and based on our reviews people love staying here too.

    We have a large house and garden with lots of outbuildings so there are always small tasks to keep everything under control, such as gardening, cleaning, building maintenance, fruit picking and cooking.

    We run a campsite and have people who rent rooms from us long term. So it's fun here with lots of new people coming and going.

    You will not be asked to help with our business, but if you choose you can practice your English with our campsite guests or housemates.

    We are happy to help you improve your English and will sit down every evening to have a chat over a meal. I also try (although it is not always possible) to make sure that if we have more than one workaway you don't speak the same language as you learn a lot more English this way. You can also explore the countryside here, we are in the heart of Robin Hood country and there are some beautiful walks just outside the front door as well as some historic old towns a short train journey away. You could end up learning all sorts of things from the varied tasks and you will hopefully find out that some English people can cook.

    We would love some help outdoors with gardening and general maintenance of our garden area. If you have any gardening experience or eco-experience, we would love to hear from you. You could also help with cleaning, and cooking all the fruit and vegetables we grow in our garden. But it really doesn't matter what experience you have as long as you are happy to muck in.

    We don't ask you to help with the campsite gardening or maintenance and our housemates clean their own rooms so it's just the bit of the house we and you will use that needs cleaning. We also don't ask for any help with produce that is sold to campers.
