  • Description


    We are a family run business, with Hugh and Leanne taking over the reins of this fantastic place.
    We're a training venue for athletes and their family's. We open from the end of April to September.
    On site we have a heated 25m pool, sauna, jacuzzi ,bike hire, Gym, Vo2 testing etc, everything needed for a triathlon training holiday.
    Our guests receive all-inclusive full board service with coaching. We provide a luxury stay in this growing industry. Our name is well known and respected, if we can find some volunteers willing to work hard and play hard then a great summer could be had all-round. We are generally in need of a chef to help us povide our hungry athletes with delicious and nutritious meals every evening.

    Hugh and Leanne both started working at Tri-Topia as volunteers and truly believe everyone needs an experience like this. We want to offer you a great stay and promise that you'll walk away many experiences richer. Our place would be perfect for singles or couples who enjoy the active, outdoor lifestyle.

    If you are sporty or would like to get into triathlon the job would allow plenty of time to do just that.

  • Help


    We are mostly in search of a chef or experienced cook who can help us feed our hungry guests. We provide them with three course meals every evening, which don't have to be extremely fancy but tasty and nutritious.
    Besides help in the kitchen...
    There is always plenty to do, such as cleaning, general tidying around the guests rooms.
    Then gardens, pool cleaning, bike maintenance, general labour work. Nothing too heavy but the gardener does need some help, as we try to provide a lot of the food for the kitchen from the garden.
