Our YHA hostel is a lovely cosy house on the edge of Exmoor National Park. It has 32 beds in 8 bedrooms and a large area of well maintained gardens. Minehead itself is a bustling seaside resort on the West Somerset coast with great views over to South Wales. YHA is a charity that accepts volunteers to help us maintain our locations and help with the services we provide to our guests. So you could be assisting us with cleaning, gardening, on reception and even painting!
A great stay with us in a peaceful environment, so we are popular with students looking for a placement and active people wanting to make a difference for the YHA. And the chance to live in an amazing place.
Every day is different, so hopefully you will be adaptable but always willing to assist us. Volunteering is usually a few hours per day, with 2 days off per week.
We have some staff accommodation for you to stay, which you might be sharing and be lucky enough to have to yourself. Camping in our peaceful garden is also an option when it's warmer and drier!!
Exmoor is all around us, so the chance to explore a beautiful part of southern England is there for free!
Bristol and Exeter are also close by for some cultural breaks.
