    When we are open we will need a sharp well turned out person to help run the place over the summer. We anticipate being busy and we are short on time so all hands to the pumps!!

    Initially we can supply a bell tent and camping equipment, but soon we will our first dome up so you will be able to stay inside your very own bubble and enjoy the view of the stars every night from the comfort of your bed.

    We will also provide breakfast and lunch and we have surfboards and fishing gear you can use. There are so many places to explore nearby and the land has a public footpath on it so in the morning you can do coastal walks or foraging or into Falmouth or Helston near by to grab a pasty! In the evening you can have a small camp fire in the fire pit and relax!

    Hi "HELP US" we (Keira and Alex) are looking for people to come and help us set up a geodesic dome glamping site in Cornwall. We are reinvesting the profits into making the land a biodiverse environment this spring. 1st of June is opening day and we are looking for fun willing volunteers to come help us set it all up! We have all sorts of things to get stuck into... We have 11 acres of land and we are going to be planting a huge wild flower meadow as well as create a herb garden and even build a 7m wide amphitheatre, 2m deep, cut into the land for a fire pit! We will be testing a new kind of compost toilet (that we have to build) and installing solar micro generators to power the domes. Not to mention the borehole to get our own spring water and the lake!.

    We will welcome anyone who would like to come and help us who is fit and keen and up for a challenge.
    If you have experience building in any trade we would love you to come or if you'd like to learn then get in touch. If you can cook, come down to Cornwall for the summer and man our fire pit dinners that will be available. If you would just like to have access to some land to create the most beautiful wild meadow and do your bit to help the bees. Watch it grow over the summer then come to Cornwall and help us we would much appreciate it.

    If you want to learn skills this might be fore you, if your willing and pick things up quick then I am a carpenter and you will be working with me and the team we are assembling to create this amazing place!

    Now lockdown in the UK is coming to an end we will be ready to accept applicants.
