We run a tipi campsite and outdoor wedding venue in our 20 acres of woodland just 10 minutes inland from the coastal town of Port Isaac.
We are an ideal place for people that love to be outdoors and part of a close team for the working season! Whether you're a surfer looking for a job and base-camp while in North Cornwall for the summer or someone who just wants to save up while living in Cornwall.
Due to Cornwall's tourist season we open at the end of March and close in September every year.
We always pay our staff at least minimum wage and, depending on their skillset, quite often more. Please note, due to the horrors of Brexit, we are unable to host workawayers who do not have permission/visas etc to work in the UK. This is a sad situation, but not one we can do anything about as we offer paid work to everyone who comes to us. So you need to be a UK citizen or have the correct paperwork to take self-employed work in the UK. Sorry!

Enjoying the Cornish delights of pasties, clotted cream, surfing and, quite often, rain.
In all seriousness we're a great place to learn practical skills whether it's painting the shower block or starting campfires, learning to drive a quad or mixing pimms for wedding guests; are some more practical than others? Maybe.
Cornwall is a classic part of the British countryside and is well renowned for it's coastal walks and sandy beaches, it's a great place to be part of a community and for anyone interested in working with us from overseas your English skills are guaranteed to improve from working with our lovely team!

We always pay our staff at least minimum wage and, depending on their skillset, quite often more. We're looking for people definitely 18+ and prefer people 20+ - we'd like mature workers who have had full-time jobs before. Please note, as mentioned above, we can only host workawayers who have permission/visas to work in the UK. It's Brexit and we hate it!
We love people who have:
- experience dealing with customers
- experience working in a team
- experience in events (but can learn on the job)
- can capably use power tools (such as strimmers, drills, mowers, chainsaws etc); there's always lots of things to be fixed and maintained
-experience with driving a quad bike is good but can be taught
-basic computer knowledge; it's nothing extreme but we have an online booking system you'd need to be able to check daily
We also love:
1) people who want to join our housekeeping crew - who take care of cleaning the tipis for changeovers, cleaning the loos and keeping them stocked of loo rolls and soaps, and organizing our storage barn. If you're naturally organised and good at cleaning then you'll pick this up in no time!
2) people to join our site maintenance crew where work involves: putting up and taking down tipis, driving quads and lawnmowers, building things using woodworking skills e.g. our new wooden jetty on the lake was finished by the crew recently.
There is a lot of work with power tools with the maintenance crew like trimmers, chainsaws, drills etc. So ideally people who are capable or experienced with these things would be the best fit.
As a large site we can always do with adept gardeners to help along our flora and fauna and to clear away weeds, nettles and brambles when they appear!
As it's an unusual job (most people don't work with tipis regularly) we will of course offer training for all your regular tasks; you'll be trained by a member of staff as well as learning on the job.
There's a lot of of dealing with campers on holiday and wedding guests, checking them in on arrival and saying goodbye when they leave, plus just in passing or they have a few quick questions - so good people skills is always a big plus!
Please let us know what your experience is and what time period you're available for when contacting us. :)
We can offer you free camping on our site; you are welcome to bring your own tent/campervan.
We also have caravans available for staff but a limited supply so it depends when in the season you arrive!
In terms of food there are local shops in the surrounding villages & larger supermarkets in the nearby towns of Wadebridge or Bodmin. There's also an on site cafe which is run by our family friends and they give a discount on food to staff members.
We are just inland from the historic and picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac (the filming location for Doc Martin and home to the Fishermen's Friends).
We are surrounded by country lanes good for cyclists and coastal walks are abundant.
We are about a 15 minute drive from the surfing hub of Polzeath.
Local transport is pretty irregular but you can catch buses from Port Isaac to Polzeath, and from St Kew Highway (10 minutes from site) to Wadebridge. There are also local taxi companies.
