September/October 2022: Renovating a cabin in the woods
We live in the beautiful Ogwen Valley in an old farm cottage in the middle of sheep fields. It's a lovely place if you want to get away from civilisation
The main activity is renovating a cabin that we have in some woodlands nearby, the idea is to create a space where community and educational groups can run activities from for free. This will involve reroofing the building and making a wooden frame to install the roof sheets on, and also a few days of adapting the concrete walls. There might be some other tasks also, mainly gardening. If you're interested it would be nice to have a chat on the phone to get to know each other a bit better.
To make sure we're on the same page, we are looking for people that;
- Have some experience in construction or woodworking
- Speak English well
- 25 years or older
Feel free to get in touch, cheers!

Summer here in North Wales is lovely if you come with an open mind and are open to new experiences. There are a lot of outdoor activities, and a load of nice people around.
We have many exciting ideas about what we would like to do with the houses and land, and we'd love some other people to come and share the projects with us! We'd like to stress that this can quite heavy and dirty, and you should be prepared for rock moving, hole digging, concreting, furniture moving, and anything else that might pop up. We're always glad to be able to bounce ideas off our volunteers, often with wonderfully different suggestions coming up, which we can follow We ask for around 5 hours help a day, 5 days a week but this has to be flexible to fit around the task and the weather. In return you'll get a free bed and meals, and a chance to get to know the local area. Short stays work well for us - 1-2 weeks is fine!

With Welsh as our second language, we are keen to help others understand the language and learn some basic useful phrases
The house itself has hot water, showers, clothes washing facilities, wifi, and a fully equipped kitchen. We have a double bedroom available.
There is a small shop in our village and there is one pub. Buses pass from a bus-stop 10 minutes walking from the house, so it's easy enough to get to Bangor, the nearest 'city' which has plenty of shops and a train station. Near to where we live you can wander in the mountains for days, climb in abandoned quarries and even check out the beautiful beaches on Anglesey. Be prepared for wet and windy weather, it's always possible here, although summers are generally drier thanks to climate change

Any dog would need to be well trained, friendly and completely safe with sheep as we are surrounded by them!
