    Hi we have over 10 years experience hosting helpers from all over the World from various platforms and we run a Bed and Breakfast, Holiday Cottages and Low cost alternative English conversation classes in a really beautiful part of the Yorkshire Dales .
    We are looking for someone 22-38yrs old,fun, a NON SMOKER, positive, organised,keen on attention to detail and that little bit special so tell us why our the helper we need and what special qualities you can bring!
    We have 2 types of help, help in the B&B 3-4 hours a day, 5days a week and minimum wage will be paid.
    Secondly help with general day to day life, gardening, relaxing, fitness, nutrition and Sylvotherapy.
    Minimum stay 3 weeks . The B&B is an ideal place to study or write your papers for university.

    Friendly welcome awaits and expect the same in return. We are open minded and live a very English way of life lots of Tea and cakes!. The B&B is an excellent base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales on foot, by bike or local buses. York,Leeds,Bradford,Salts Mill, Malham(Tarn and limestone pavements) Haworth(home of the brontes) and Manchester easy to get to. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife to see or photograph otters, kingfishers,owls and many more. Good accommodation and meals in return for help. It is easy to get to us national express buses come to Skipton (where we pick you up) from all over the uk and it is easy to get here from Leeds. Nearest Airport is Leeds/Bradford where we can pick you up.

  • Accommodation


    We can only host female helpers. A room in the house with its own lock and NON SMOKERS ONLY. We host 1 or 2 workawayers at a time but not couples or friends and not from the same country so you have to use English all the time and learn a lot quicker!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have had many helpers and enjoyed there company and look forward to many more. Also been a volunteer in Poland and really enjoyed it. It is our ambition to host helpers and guests from all over the World and surprisingly we are well on our way to doing so. We are now welcoming back some of our previous helpers and there families and catching up with them, one helper is fetching her new husband and it is great to see them all again. Trying to live a life where time and money and less important and good company and new experiences are. Keep travelling , keep smiling !
