  • Description


    Join our great team on Workaway!

    We welcome your help at our historic thatched cottage in Brockenhurst in the New Forest National Park. During the summer we also take guests sailing on the Solent and sometimes there is the opportunity for Workawayers to help our professional crew on board the yachts.

    You will be very well looked after, with plenty of time to explore the New Forest, the south coast of England or go to Southampton, Bournemouth or London on your days off.

    This is a very varied position, with lots of tasks for you to help us with. We look forward to hearing from you!
