Due to the amount of enquires i get, i am therefore only able to host for a maximum of 2 weeks, unless someone has a specific trade.
I have travelled extensively throughout the world and therefore thoroughly enjoy the company of others.
I chose to move to this gorgeous semi rural location (South Godstone) for a less hectic way of life but i still enjoy the conveniences of the lovely historic towns such as Reigate, Oxted, East Grinstead, Caterham, Westerham (was the home town of Winston Churchill) and many others near by.
I am also on the borders of Sussex and Kent. The coastal towns such as Brighton are approximately 45 minutes away by train from Redhill station. Time permitting, i am happy to take you to the station and collect you from there.
In any direction from here, also to be enjoyed are the abundance of National Trust properties and English Heritage properties, as well as countless amounts of quintessentially English pubs, Tea rooms and endless activities. A lot of which i enjoy.
Being a motorcycle rider, also allows me to enjoy constantly exploring these counties and this country. I have friends that live in different areas and would be willing to take you with me, for you, to visit other interesting places, should you be staying with me at that time.
There are also a huge amount of meet up groups within the area, should you wish to join other groups of people doing activities, whether that is sports, languages, the arts, or whatever you can think of. Meetup is a fabulous social networking site.
I WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD BE EXTREMELY PRECISE WITH REGARDS TO THE DATES YOU DEFINITELY WANT TO COME HERE, SO THAT IT DOES NOT CLASH WITH EVERYONE ELSES' REQUESTS.
GOOD AND REGULAR COMMUNICATION IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT AS WE HOSTS ARE NOT PSYCHIC BEHIND THE SCREEN.
Many thanks :-)

Living in this part of Surrey is amazingly beautiful. I am located on a Surrey Cycle Route and i have a bicycle that one would be allowed to use. If you are a keen walker then the choice is in an abundance around here and the North Downs.
The trainline. com will give you an idea of how long and how much fares will cost.
Visiting London from here is also incredibly easy and cheap. Trains can be taken from London Gatwick airport to Victoria London takes 30 minutes, Redhill or Godstone trains also go to London. The work away guests so far have all managed to visit London at the weekends for a mere £8 or £10 ticket. The price varies depending on the time one uses the train.
The National Express Coach line is also an affordable way of visiting different areas.
Have a look at meetup . com website, and you will find a huge amount of social activities of all kinds.
Lavender Farms this time of year (summer) are incredibly beautiful to visit.
Segway Unleashed in Godstone, is a fun activity to try, as is 'Ride the Hill', also locally based.
Godstone Vineyard. Kingscote Estate Vineyard in East Grinstead.
Godstone Divers Cove is worth visiting to go swimming around this lake as this has yet again been an exceedingly long, hot summer and is open most of the year.
Water skiing can be entertained at Wire Mill Water Ski club in East Grinstead.
Bluebell Railway to go on a steam train, being a heritage rail line, departs from East Grinstead.

I have a very large shed which i would like some one to help me with.
To assist me with help to build a log store, window boxes, storage boxes, storage benches etc. I basically want to use all of the wood that i have behind my garage.
Hedge trimming. A bit of weeding and digging would be required.
Other general chores would include car and bike cleaning.
Window cleaning, inside the house and in and outside of the large shed.
My home is immaculately clean and i don't need help in this area.
I had my house renovated and certain tasks had not been completed, so i would be grateful for someone who has general common sense and is capable of working on their own, doing other odd chores.
The list of tasks for any home owner inside and out is always endless, hence i cannot list every single little job. Apart from the hedge trimming, dismantling of pallets, general painting, one can almost choose what else to do from my never ending list.
The main aim is really for us to have fun, regardless of the tasks on hand.
But i do expect a work away guest to be methodical, neat, clean and tidy with their work and inside my home!
I would also like to welcome to my home someone who can do sewing. I have a variety of cushions that need to be covered and foam pads that require covering also, as well as a curtain that needs to be made (Roman blind).
Typically free accommodation and breakfast and main meal and snacks, is in exchange for 5 days a week and 5 hours per day help but i am flexible and if you wanted to help your 25 hours over 4 days, to be able to enjoy a long weekend away, then i am happy to entertain that also.
I will naturally expect someone to help their 5 hours in a consistent manner, as it is not a lot to ask, especially when i am welcoming someone to my home for free!
If you are the type that is always on your phone and wants a breaks every 15 minutes, please DO NOT contact me.
I would love to welcome someone either from abroad or the UK.
I don't mind smokers as i have a very large garden and patio to smoke in.
Newly decorated double bedroom with Tv and a beautiful view.
Another newly decorated bedroom with TV and a beautiful view.
Very large new kitchen/dining room.
Large garden & New patio.
I am happy to cook for you and likewise if you prefer to cook, then that is fine with me.
Approximately 30 minutes to London Victoria from Redhill train station. Godstone approximately 1hour to London Bridge. I would be happy to take someone to this station, when time permits.
The bus stops outside my house, (when you wave at him to stop), going to a few different local towns.
I live next door to a country pub.
The list is endless of what i could recommend for you to do around here, or where to go. As everyone has different tastes.
If there is anything in particular that you would like to know about on what to do or how to do, then please do feel free to message me, as i feel its in your best interest to collate as much information as possible for you to use your time wisely, when you are here.
