    My name's Anthony, I'm from England and I've been living in Hampshire since October 2014. I'm offering Homestay opportunities from September 2020 onwards for someone who is friendly and is aged around 18 to 30. The house is large (4 bedrooms) and has a big garden of almost one acre. There's a single room available for you, with a study area and nice views over the countryside. If English is not your first language then I am happy to help with English practice. I also speak fluent Spanish and I have a very basic knowledge of French, Italian and Catalan.

    There's a variety of work to do here; most of it involves maintaining and improving the garden. There may also be some building work to do so it helps if you're reasonably active and don't mind getting your hands dirty. When the weather's too bad for garden work there are usually things to do indoors such as cleaning, cooking or maybe painting. Also, you don't have to LGBT+ to stay here but this is a gay-friendly place so if you're homophobic or narrow-minded then it's not for you.

    The working hours / days are very flexible. The house is in the countryside but I have a car and I can help with transport to the nearest railway stations (Alton and Basingstoke) or to the coach stop in Basingstoke. There are lots of walks and country pubs and the house has a bicycle you can use to explore the area. If you can play a piano then there is one here. There is broadband Internet, with wireless connections for laptops and smartphones.

    Usually people stay 2 weeks at a time but this is flexible too. I'm new here on Workaway but I have had 11 out of 11 positive reviews on on another similar volunteering website, so feel free to enquire and ask any questions you may have.

    Happy to host both British and non-British workawayers. I can help with conversational practice in either English or Spanish. If you are from outside the UK then you may like to learn a little about the British way of life; we love our tea breaks. I am open-minded, with no strong political or spiritual views. I have a love of nature and a relaxed way of life.

  • Unterkunft


    Room: Single private room with a private study area. The main bathroom is shared but I have my own bathroom so the main one would be almost exclusively yours, depending on whether anyone else is staying.

    Food: is mostly vegetarian / pescatarian but I'm happy to cook meat for you if you prefer. I've had people staying here who are lactose intolerant and that's ok because lactose-free milk is easily available but if you are 100% vegan or if you can't tolerate *️️any*️️ dairy products then it's complicated unless you want to do all of the cooking. I like vegetarian and vegan food!

    Garden: Plenty of space to sit and chill out with a book or with your music in the large and quiet gardens. Also there is a Jacuzzi/Spa pool, which is very relaxing in the evenings.

    Usually I have just one helper here at any time but sometimes it's two. If you're travelling with a campervan then there is plenty of room to park it.

    It's a non-smoking household so please no smokers.... or be prepared to smoke outside :)

    Local transport is limited but I can help where possible, see above. If you want to visit London there are direct trains from Alton with a journey time of 75 minutes. The nearest tourist attraction is "The Watercress Line", a heritage railway which does old-style steam powered train journeys between Alton and the pretty town of Alresford. Other nearby places of interest include Alton (Jane Austen connection), Portsmouth and Winchester.
