Do you have a specific skill you would like to trade for a free nights stay? Get in touch!

The work weeks are usually held mid-week, twice a year, in order to take on specific major jobs eg. Gardening, repairs, redecorating, constructing. Recent work weeks have been well attended, with a satisfying list of jobs completed. Thank you to all you lovely women who have been so fab, the house couldn’t do with out you.

In return for a minimum of 5H work each day, you can stay for free, but this must be arranged in advance with the workers. Children over the age of 11 may accompany volunteers at the discretion of the workers, but usual charges apply for children unless they are also volunteering.
Travel expenses may be reimbursed. Email us for more details.

We are always looking for women with particular skills in plastering, plumbing, painting, sewing, gardening etc. and of course women to help with lifting, cooking and cleaning. There is usually a range of jobs for a range of skills – from the DIY experienced to those of us who barely know one end of a hammer from another! It is always friendly and fun, and you are welcome to learn and share with others. For your efforts you will have lots of good food, good company and a free stay (you can also come for just a day or two). Please speak to a worker or email us for more details and to book a place, or to offer to cook or fundraise for a work week.

 Please see our support or fundraising web page for other ways you can offer either in the short or long term.

House Sitters Training 2023 (more dates might be added):

  • 27th-29th of March

  • 24th-27th of April

  • 26th-28th of June

House Sitters come and look after the house and guests in order for the workers to take a break and get some well-deserved rest. We are always on the look out for new women to do this important and rewarding job. After your training, you would be working alongside one of the workers until you have enough experience to work either on your own or with another house-sitter.

Please email if you would like to book onto this training.

Why not organise a fundraising event?

You can be sponsored to do ANYTHING, ANYWHERE! How about a sponsored silence, tiddlywinks, bridge playing, bike ride, book reading, knitting, not smoking, doing circuits of your local park, etc. Every penny goes towards the House, and means we can continue to make improvements.
email us or speak to the workers for more info + sponsor forms.
