We are a vegan Animal Sanctuary for rescued farm animals, situated in the gorgeous countryside of Somerset, South West England. We currently have over 20 animals, including goats, sheep, pigs, horses, hen and ferret, who have come to us from horrible backgrounds, and who will now live out the rest of their lives in peace. We manage the sanctuary ourselves, with the help of our incredible workawayers, and a few regular local volunteers.
Animal lovers only!
Help around the house
You will have a unique insight into life in Somerset, a beautiful part of England. The land here is really peaceful, calming and special. Many people who come to visit us leave with a lasting sense of relaxation.
You also get the chance to hang out with and get to know all of our beautiful animals!
We need workawayers to help us with the daily routine here on the sanctuary. Getting to know the animals, bringing them out of their stables each morning, cleaning out their stables, general maintenance around the place...and when you get the chance, spending time playing and socialising with the animals. There is always something to be done here!!
If you have any particular strengths in BUILDING, CONSTRUCTION or FUNDRAISING, this would be an extra bonus!
We also have 4 energetic dogs, who are always asking for a ball to be thrown...
Workawayers live in a beautiful annex next to the main house, with a shower and self-contained kitchen. There is also the possibility of camping on our grounds in a bell tent in Summer.
You will be provided with food to prepare your own meals, and also be invited to join in family meals from time to time.
Please note - we are a vegan household and do not allow any meat or dairy onto the sanctuary, in respect of the animals who live here
Our place is in a rural location, about 5 minutes drive from Wells. We are more than happy to pick you up and take you to Wells when needed. We also have bicycles to borrow if you want. From there you can visit Glastonbury, a really unique, spiritual and fantastic town! There is also a bus to the city of Bristol, which has lots of culture and great nightlife. There are lots of amazing walks around the area too.
