We are a family-run historic house and estate near East Grinstead, Sussex (UK). Built by Benjamin Henry Latrobe in 1792, and once owned by rock band Led Zeppelin, the house is of significant architectural importance. Our family purchased the house in the 1980s when it was derelict, and restored it to some of its former glory.

The house is set in beautiful English countryside. We're only 20 minutes from London Gatwick airport, and 40 minutes from central London by train. We'll pay for you to have free English lessons if you would like them. If you're over 25, qualified to drive, and are planning to stay for longer than two months, we'll insure you on a car (if not, we're only three miles from a large town, East Grinstead, and will happily drive you in to do your shopping). We'll give you good pocket money, and we'll regularly have you to lunch/supper to improve your English. During the summer, you'll be one of several helpers - so you'll even have company! We have three beautiful dogs, Mabel and Lily, who can't wait to meet you.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: we are currently looking for a couple to come from spring 2021 onwards and stay for *at least 2 months*, or more. Construction, carpentry and gardening skills particularly appreciated. We are also taking advance bookings for summer, autumn and winter 2021 (construction, carpentry and gardening skills also particularly appreciated for this period). Thanks for all your interest!
We regret that we only use Workaway when we have a need for helpers, so don't log in to the site regularly and can't reply to all your fabulous (and hugely appreciated) emails.
We need a helping hand with gardening, forestry, building/DIY, and indoor tasks. Skills in carpentry, electrics, masonry, forestry and construction might be useful; but if you are enthusiastic and practically-minded then you'll do well here. Workawayers are nearly always under the supervision of our estate manager. Due to the size and complexity of the house and in order to make stays fulfilling and worthwhile, ideally we need Workawayers who can stay for eight weeks or more.
Helpers will either have the use of a recently refurbished and warm static caravan, or of a cottage. Both are comfortable and have recently been used by our helpers.
