    Edinburgh is a beautiful city to be in due to the surrounding countryside, amazing volcanic rock (Arthurs Seat) right in the centre of town. It has lots of beautiful cafes museums & galleries and lost of outside spaces to visit. The Georgian architecture is so beautiful, which makes just walking round the streets really interesting.

    I am an artist and holistic practitioner. I paint watercolours and also do Energy Healing, Astrological Chart readings and work with Dreams ( groups and individuals) I love nature (which inspires my artwork) and although living in town, I love to get to the great outdoors to relax, in my time off. I look forward to introducing you to some of the things I like to do. I am not great at speaking foreign languages myself, but am also happy to help you improve your English.

    I am interested in sustainability, re-cycling and minimising carbon foot print.

    I am looking for a couple, or two friends, to help with some DIY painting & decorating (painting woodwork inside the house and garden shed) gardening and cleaning I am a friendly, relaxed, young at heart, host who will welcome you into my home. I am looking for two workaways to stay for 2 weeks end of September/early October. I love having workawayers and we have always got on really well (see reviews below).

    The place I live, was previously just my studio, then I recently moved in and it is now dual purpose. I am looking for help to put some finishing touches inside and outside, to turn it into a home and working studio.

    I live in a converted Mission Hall , where I also work. I have on-street parking in front of my home for a campervan and have a camper myself :), so if you have a camper and prefer to sleep there, due to Covid, using all the other facilities here, that is OK too. There is plenty of space here to social distance and I can provide you with your own room, with a comfy double blow up mattress and mattress topper to sleep on ( or two single blow up mattresses, if two friends) . There are two toilets, so you will have your own toilet and we will share the shower.

    Wouldn't expect more than 5 hours a day help. I like to do the 25 hours a week over 3 and a half days, so you can then have 3 and a half days off to do other stuff, each week. This gives you plenty of time to explore, as there is so much interesting stuff to see an do in Edinburgh and Scotland.

  • Unterkunft


    Your own, private, small room with a comfy blow up double mattress, underneath a foam mattress topper. ( I will provide a separate single, blow up bed if it's two work away friends). I also welcome workawayers in a camper van, who can park right outside.

    My home has Central Heating, high speed internet, dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, microwave, two toilets, one with a shower, etc and a big sit in kitchen with sofa. We will be sharing these facilities, downstairs, where your room is. I sleep upstairs and have a private studio and kitchenette. There is also a workshop/yoga studio upstairs. It's a large space, so we will be able to maintain social distancing, whilst also having a shared experience.

    All your basic food is provided and there is a big Tesco just round the corner if you would like to buy anything extra. I am vegetarian and Glutten Free and love cooking. I like to eat and cook together with my workawayers on the days we were working and you can help yourself to food on the days you are not working. It is a non smoking flat, but there is an outside space, with a fire pit, that you can smoke and sit outside in. I am vegetarian, but happy for other people to eat meat :).

    I enjoy 5Rhythms dance, film, meditation, astrology, cycling, swimming, walking. I am looking for a couple, or two friends and enjoy independent helpers who I am happy to introduce to my life, but are also happy taking their own initiative on their time off. I love Edinburgh, have lived here for nearly 30 years and can give you lots of local tips & recommendations for things to see and do on your time off.

    I live in Leith, central Edinburgh. It is a quiet relaxed home/studio,10 mins drive (20 mins bus ride, 40 mins walk) to Portobello Beach, a 20 mins walk to Arthurs Seat in the centre of Edinburgh and a 30 min drive (or bus ride) from some beautiful, unspoilt beaches in East Lothian. I live just around the corner from Leith Links, a big open park area. Glasgow is 45 mins away by train and the islands on the west coast are beautiful. There is a bus stop just around the corner and Edinburgh is also an easy city to walk around, without using public transport.

    I have a good internet connection and can put a desk in your room to work from. It's a flexible space, so we can discuss anything else that's needed.
