  • Description


    Currently have space for volunteers as follows:
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ 1-4 volunteers but most of the work will be helping clean the house and look after the cats and chickens and gardens - please note that over winter this can be a cold climate we do not yet have central heating and facilities are really basic compared to modern living !
    We are at the early stages of restoring an old, large and characterful building, parts of which date to the 14th Century, with a walled garden, orchard and vegetable patch. We'll be creating a small yoga studio, accommodation rooms and community spaces. In the medium to long term we hope the site will host retreats and small scale events.

    We're conveniently located within quarter of an hour by car or taxi from Holyhead, from where there are connections to London, Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff and Dublin.

    Food is predominantly locally sourced. We eat meat sparingly (=not much), but can feed vegans and vegetarians (but please tell us in advance if you have dietary restrictions as specialist products are not available locally). We eat a lot of soups and stews. Usually you help yourself to breakfast, we eat lunch together, and then I'll give you ingredients to make your own dinners.

    In the warmer months we typically have one or two volunteers staying most of the time, for up to a fortnight initially, or long weekends are also possible. We are very happy for people to stay longer if we find we all get on. The volunteer room can sleep up to 4 people and so it is sometimes possible for families or larger groups to stay.

    We need general help of all kinds, during most of the year, including:

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ taking care of the chickens and cats
    *️️️️️️️️️️️ planting hedges
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ digging trenches for drainage

    If you have existing skills you might also be able to help us with the following:
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ roofing type work - fitting tin roofs to workshop outbuildings
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ repairing walls and lintels

    Specific opportunities:
    *️️️️️️️️️ If you want skills or experience in arts management, event administration, websites, social media and marketing, you could help Claire with specific projects related to either yoga or storytelling. You'd ideally need a very good standard of English as some writing would be involved.

    *️️️️️️️ If you know Latin or Hen Cymraeg there are some opportunities to do archive research, looking into the historical background to the buildings.

  • Hébergement


    There are beds available inside with duvets and sheets and blankets; you can camp if you want to during warmer months. If there are other volunteers on site you may be sharing a room. Note that hot water supplies are limited and we don't have any central heating - so it can be cold through the winter. Please bring warm clothes, and boots or shoes for working outside, as it can be muddy.

    Autres infos...

    Ynys Môn (known in English as Anglesey) is an island with attractive beaches, historic sacred sites and distant views of the mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia). The site itself is in the village of Llanfachraeth, which has a local shop and pub, and Holyhead has more shops and amenities. The sea is fairly close - about 40 minutes walk away. You can cycle to some neighbouring beaches and the museum at Porth Swtan (Church Bay).
