|Preview host||Hello! |
We are desperately looking for some help with our 5 acres of land that is home to our 2 native horses and a handful of chickens. We have a very large garden/ allotment that used to provide much of our food, that I would like to bring back into production. There is an orchard, fruit garden, many raised beds, and a large polytunnel. They are in desperate need of some love and care.
We are really keen to find some help to take care of our garden. This would be most suited to an individual or couple who would like to take on a project for the season- to develop their skills in planning, growing and harvesting. Some DIY experience would also be useful for general tasks around the small holding.
We have a spare room, and also space for camping by the river, or electricity in the field for van living.
|Preview host||We have a 21 acre croft on the east coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Western Isles of Scotland. We grow trees, vegetables and flowers. We keep chickens and have a peacock and peahen. |
We have planted several thousand trees which are developing well. We live on the edge of a tidal sea loch so are able to use sea weed as a natural fertiliser which has proved very successful.
We are interested in green energy and use a heat store system for all our heating and hot water. We don't use fossil fuels for heating so this means a lot of wood cutting!
Our croft house is about 90 years old and has been added to and adapted by various previous occupants. We have gradually been renovating and insulating our rooms.
We have 2 dogs. We also work off the croft in health work and engineering.
Future development projects include further tree planting and development of outhouses. We have recently completed our first polytunnel (polycrub) to extend the growing season.
|Preview host||We are a 177 acre organic farm - mostly grass, small area of arable, small apple orchard and some woodland. We keep suckler cows, sheep and a free-range breeding flock of Norfolk Black turkeys. We also run a wood boiler which heats 2 houses (this is carbon neutral heating - we don't burn oil). |
If you come here as a wwoofer you may be helping with with turkey plucking (December), cleaning and moving turkey houses (February and March), logging and preparing firewood (summer), apple harvesting and apple juicing (autumn) or many other things. One job that always needs doing is cooking - so all wwoofers get to help with preparing meals.
We try to run our farm and live our life in a way that is as sustainable as possible - so we welcome like-minded Wwoofers!
|Preview host||We're (almost) self-sufficient in vegetables, growing for our family for 23 years. Have fruit trees, shrubs, flower borders. We work hard, but are quite easy-going and don't require long hours from WWOOFers - normally 5-6 hours a day with plenty of free time and 1 full day off per week. We like having people here, have become friends with some WWOOFers and keep in touch with them. Volunteers need to be 'self-starters' who don't require too much attention or looking-after. Accommodation: normally a bedroom in the house, but sometimes camping is summer. The sea is 20 minutes walk - WWOOFers often go to the beach in the afternoon. We are an artist & web designer with twin home-educated sons, age 23, who are here from time to time. We are trained and experienced in use of natural medicines and therapies. Also need help with general maintenance. |
NOTE - we have about 2-3 enquiries a day. We are unlikely to agree to have you here unless you have especially useful skills and/or sound interesting!
|Preview host||Grow a well established garden and love cooking fresh food everyday. I also volunteer at two charity garden projects in the town that guests are welcome to join and enjoy. Location wise it is great but also a really quiet space. |
Ideal for backpackers, travelers, hitch hikers, hippies, festival goers, couchsurfers, cyclists, musicians, creatives, LGBT, any religion and culture welcome. Vegan, vegetarian friendly, I host hundreds of people every year and all are welcome.
I have hosted WWOOF members through other sites and find them all to be awesome!
|Preview host||3 acres of fruit, vegetables, nuts, rough pasture, greenhouses, herb garden and young woodland area. Large scale rainwater collection and solar heating systems. Six bed rotation with green manures and mulching. Forest garden. Self-sufficient in vegetables, fruit and eggs with continuous fresh food production. 6 chickens. Food preservation including bottling, drying, juice, wine etc in summer and autumn. Woodland and firewood management; spinning, dyeing and knitting in winter. Also interested in cycling, yoga, green issues, music, canoeing and swimming in nearby river. We also have a 4 acre field that is slowly being transformed into a woodland. |
|Preview host||I run a landless smallholding and Limited company near post-industrial Dewsbury, alongside the Calder and Hebble canal, West Yorkshire. |
I keep bees in a woodland nature reserve.
I would like help with a top bar hive apiary project 15 min bike ride East by the river Calder ; a good place for wild swimming and picnics.
Beekeeping and growing food are organic and biodynamic activities.
Help with a new Allotment plot for herbs and bee friendly plants would be appreciated.
I can offer guidance on growing food, beekeeping, gathering wild food/medicine, outdoor cooking and generally getting by without owning land. A large spare truck with solid fuel burner and mini kitchen could accommodate a couple or up to two good friends sharing.
|Preview host||Our croft is situated in the highlands of Scotland. Public transport is by bus from Inverness. Basic accommodation is in the family home. We have 4 cows and followers, and a domestic cat. We prefer non-smoking guests. We do not normally work on Sundays. We cultivate an organic vegetable garden and 2 organic hayfields. There is an area of woodland behind our house and wildlife can be observed. |
|Preview host||We are a couple living on a ½ hectare smallholding near the university town of Bangor, Snowdonia National Park and beaches. We have a multi-purpose site run on permaculture principles and try to work with nature for the benefit of us and wildlife. We have growing areas that are more traditionally organic horticulture, orchard and soft fruit, wild areas, woodland, alternative edible species less commonly known and also encourage wild plants that are useful to us and nature. We have a cat, hens, ducks and bees and we sell eggs, vegetables, fruit, honey and beehive products. We grow willow for building living willow structures and are involved in a number of food growing projects in schools and the local community. Other interests include sustainable living, swimming, local football, yoga, Non Violent Communication, family life and practicing French, Welsh & German whenever possible. |
|Preview host||We live on a five acre croft (small holding) in a small village on the Isle of Skye. |
We are a husband and wife John and Lis. John's 91 year old dad lives next door. Our have three grown up children live away and our oldest, Rosaidh, who is 29 has just moved back home for a while. We are a non smoking household.
We keep a flock of Hebridean sheep which we hand shear to provide knitting wool. We process our own meat. We also have bees and hens, a large vegetable garden with many raised beds, fruit bushes and trees and a large polytunnel.
We would love help with cutting peats, making hay, weeding, harvesting, general help in the garden and occasional help to gather/shear/ dose the sheep and with beekeeping.
Accomodation - either a bedroom in the house or in our new shed where there will be basic accommodation. We eat meat and vegetarian food and any help with cooking and in the kitchen is very welcome!
We love playing traditional music with friends.
|Preview host||We are a 'green' couple trying got keep our carbon footprint as low as possible and grow our own food. We have 2 and a half allotments for 25 + years (2 x 100 rods), and no livestock. No technology other than radio but plenty of books, (3 languages), games, puzzles and darts. Make own bread and yoghurt and jam. Preserve and dry and juice fruit and veg etc. All organic which is why we need some help - digging, weeding, pest control (manual) sowing, transplanting. Will teach if wished. |
PHONE IN THE EVENINGS TO ARRANGE YOUR VISITS. (Maybe out Frid or Sat or phone early in the morning.)
|Preview host||Please read this information thoroughly before contacting us, including the Extended description. No time wasters. |
A back garden behind a terraced house is being converted to organic fruit and vegetable plots, mainly using raised beds, and includes a green house.
In order to create the optimum growing environment in this spot the earth has been systematically seived and cleaned to the depth of at least 2.5 feet throughout of more than 200 years of domestic debris, including the usual bricks, glass, ceramics etc.
Numerous Victorian items have been unearthed, including dolls, toy tea sets, pipes, pots, glass jars all showing an active history within such a small area.
The garden may not produce crops for some time as we intend to purify the soil with Hungarian Rye and clover etc.
There are 2 allotments nearby. One is 5 mins walk away, the other a short car ride away, and a car is available for transportation.
It is expected that Wwoofers will garden in all areas, while staying in the house.

As a former wwoofer myself I would hope to offer a comfortable, diverse and interesting experience for our guests. I can point you to various interesting projects in our neighbourhood such as a Community Supported Agriculture scheme and a biodynamic farm, a permaculture set up and local Transition initiatives. Accommodation: we have room in the cottage.
We have a garden - which grows fruit and some veg, two cats and woodland right beside the house, although our home is near to a main road. Work just now includes general maintenance of the garden, planting , turning compost. Improving chicken pen area.
We love to welcome wwoofers here and enjoy sharing time with them doing everyday fun things.This site is suitable for a couple or individuals.
|Preview host||We are a brother and sister and their mother in the the process of establishing a market garden croft on the east coast of Lewis. We have around 3 acres by the croft house which we plan to use extensively for vegetables, soft and top fruit and poultry. We have a further 13 acres as an apportionment 2 mile away on the moor. We are hoping to plant native trees on much of this to establish a small woodland. |
Next year we are aiming to establish several growing beds on the croft, improve drainage, establish ponds, create hugelkulturs and plant natural windbreaks. In addition we are hoping to begin the tree planting process on the apportionment. There will also be work cutting and collecting peats on the moor to fuel the rayburn and heat the house. Other work could include collecting sea weed from the local shore and goat manure from a neighbouring croft
|Preview host||*Please check our availability before emailing!* Log cabin and gardens on four acres. We are building a permaculture garden at 240mtrs to produce food for the family and aiming to build a sustainable woodland to support the many varieties of Scottish wildlife in the area: deer, pinemarten, red squirrels, owls etc. We keep chickens for egg production. Current projects include adding a second polytunnel, building hotbeds, planting trees and developing more space for veg growing. |
We have a well-insulated bothy room with wood-burning stove and electricity for visitors. Bathroom and showers in the main house. We can also provide tents.
|Preview host||Seaside hill croft establishing a woodland. Only have poultry currently. Help needed with tree planting, repair of hill and woodland footpaths. Grow fruit/catch own food as much as possible. We have a weaving shed, various looms and spinning wheels. Can speak Gaelic to those wishing to learn. Did B&B for 10 years. Use compost and seaweed fertiliser. Full of wildlife, land and sea. Watch sea eagles nest (with telescope) Surrounded by otters and seals etc. Be part of the ultimate challenge - reforesting the Outer Hebrides. |
PLEASE PHONE DURING THE EVENINGS - open for one week visits. Can only accept WWOOFers with their own insurance.
|Preview host||A large garden and substantial allotment on the edge of the beautiful South Downs national park. Only an hour from Central London by direct train, our home has the perfect balance for people wishing to experience rural country life whilst having easy access to explore the rest of the UK, particularly London, the New Forest and the Isle of Wight. The garden is currently being refreshed after many years of neglect from previous owners. The allotment includes a 30m polytunnel, 3 large beds for crop rotation, a greenhouse, an asparagus bed and numerous fruit beds. We also have a brand new orchard and an untamed tiny meadow that we would love to turn into a wild flower meadow. Our house is 2 minutes walk to the train station so easy for independent travel. |
|Preview host||We are in the North West Highlands of Scotland and the 22 acre croft situated very close to the Atlantic ocean. Jersey cross hill cow with offspring, free range hens, ducks. 3 Icelandic horses. Grow fruit, herbs and wide range of vegetables on 2 acres in this windswept location with the aid of natural windbreaks. Aim to use the land without damaging it, to be as self-sufficient as possible. Work very varied. Beautiful beach very close, nice walking country and riding with the horses! |
|Preview host||We are situated in approx 1/2 acre of land in the small picturesque crofting village of Torrin in S.W Skye. Torrin sits on the edge of Loch Slapin, and is surrounded by the Red and Black Cuillin mountains. Fabulous if you enjoy walking, climbing and swimming in sea & river. Torrin also has a small cafe 'The Blue Shed' which serves delicious homemade cakes. |
Working with us includes the up-keep of garden and polytunnel. There are many growing areas yet to be established, providing opportunities for any creative wwoofers to become involved with. Current projects also include - groundwork/erection of a workshop and we would very much like to build a compost toilet and sauna so if anyone has experience in this area we would love to hear from you.
We have five bee colonies, so if you have any serious reactions to bee stings... We also have two cats - Pippin & Sabrina.
|Preview host||We are a mixed farm of 600 ha and our aim is to provide local organic food at reasonable prices to the local community. |
We welcome longterm (6 weeks min) wwoofers OVER 21yrs in the 15 acre market garden with polytunnels where we grow 80 varieties of vegetables and soft fruit, supplying our busy 100% organic farm shop, cafe and education centre.
We are best suited for wwoofers genuinely interested in learning what it is like to grow vegetables soft fruit and cut flowers on a commercial holding (not the best place for learning english as wwoofers dont live with host family) and wwoofers work as hard as the paid workers. The shop, garden and cafe employ over 35 people including 4 - 8 in the garden but we are not a residential community.
|Preview host||Established over 30 years. 5.5 acre croft in beautiful, coastal and mountainous surroundings. 2.5 acres garden with polytunnel, veg/fruit/trees/herbs. Chickens. We have a small business growing and drying herbs, our main occupation is surviving on a remote peninsula.We are a crofting community with an alternative bias. We welcome those who seek to develop a knowledge of crofting and organic/bio-dynamic gardening - some innovative building help is also welcomed. Can take non-working paying guests - private comfy bothy by the sea too.Accommodation for wwoofers in bothy if not in use. We plant and sow using the bio-dynamic calendar. |
We may not be able to take on couples in the late winter/early spring.
Due to our remote location we are very sorry but travel by public transport is difficult to say the least (unless its summer time and you are very determined and up for an adventure!) our croft would suit wwoofers who have their own transport and enjoy a 2 hour walk. Many thanks!
|Preview host||We are situated 5 minutes drive from the historic Wiltshire town of Malmesbury. |
We are a commercial veg farm with the emphasis on quality fresh, local and seasonal produce - which we sell at local markets, restaurants and via a local box-scheme. The work reflects this and will naturally include lots of hands on work on the land.
We are very friendly, love people of all types, and our only requirement is a willingness to work hard to the best of your ability - and in return we will try and make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Visitors will stay in a studio in our garden, or at the farm either camping or in a caravan.
We are midway between 2 beautiful historical towns - Malmesbury and Tetbury, all accessible by bicycle. The river Avon is nearby and there are many local attractions such as the Westonbirt Arboretum and beautiful Cotswold villages and scenery.
|Preview host||We are a small family farm in East Devon about a 20 min walk from the sea. We have beef cattle (Ruby Red Devons), sheep, some chickens for eggs, an emerging veg garden and a couple of polytunnels. We mainly grow salad leaves for sale to local restaurants and shops and have recently started growing cut flowers for weddings and bouquets for sale locally. We have two children and a small dog and try and live as sustainably as we can... The accommodation is in a static caravan which is shared with our office. (Separate bedroom!) In summer the accommodation could be in a tent if preferred. Some meals will be self catering and some shared with us as we are a busy family. The food will mainly be from our own farm and garden. The work would mostly be in the garden but also help with livestock as and when required, some cooking, and possibly some building and fencing work. We have just got permission to build a barn and another polytunnel so wwoofers with practical skills especially welcome! |
|Preview host||2 houses joined together, one is my home (shared with my partner Eibhlin), the other is for airbnb guests on short term stays. All are surrounded by a largish varied garden with organic vegetable planters as well as wildlife meadow, fruit trees, camomile lawn, wildlife pond and mini woodland etc. Compost supports most of the planting. |
The projects are varied, clearing overgrown paths, repairing/rebuilding raised beds. But I also need general help painting and weeding.
The house is quirky, full of unusual art and decor created by my late wife and I. Ideally would suit someone who really appreciates gardens and being outside most of the time. Your accommodation is in our side of the house in nice ground floor bedroom with good internet. 5 hours work a day if possible. Shared bathroom, meals organic vegetarian , would prefer someone who is happy to cook sometimes, you might find a lot of inspiration, peace and learning while here. Sorry no smokers.
|Preview host||Some help needed next Spring please for general garden work, digging, seeding and planting. |
I'd like someone who has some experience of gardening please and is happy to do both physical work and more detailed work.
Who can also work alone and enjoys the great outdoors.
I love my garden, created over the past 18 years from the corner of a field.
The garden has vegetable and fruit beds, a polytunnel, a flower bed, a separate herb garden, a wildlife pond, damson trees and an uncooperative apple tree. A hedge of indigenous species forms the southern field boundary.
I have a couple of chairs and a hammock to sit and enjoy the garden, surrounding woods and fields on a sunny day.
The village, set in open countryside, is one long row of houses on a hillside, left when the colliery and housing were demolished in the 1960's.
We have a neighbourhood nature reserve and a Durham Wildlife Reserve towards the head of the valley. We're a few miles from Weardale, Durham City and 15 miles from Newcastle/Gateshead.
|Preview host||We live in a very old farmhouse on the Somerset Levels. We are refurbishing the property and outbuildings, constructing barns and establishing a vegetable garden, plus restore an old orchard and look after the animals. We have 4 acres. We now have 5 alpacas, 2 chickens (usually more), 3 sheep (seasonal),1 dog. |
|Preview host||We are a family living in a 230 year old home in the country in the West of Northern Ireland. We are 1.5km from the village of Kesh in County Fermanagh. |
We have a productive kitchen garden that needs attention all year round. Composting, weeding, harvesting, creating woodland walks, clearing and restoring the garden, chopping wood, strimming, painting, woodwork and the restoration of stable block are all jobs that need to be done. Solar panels / pellet boiler. We give Wwoofers the opportunity to build new skills and we give them a variety of work. We are also happy to help with those who want to improve their English. We like to welcome Wwoofers who want to work hard, integrate with our family and be prepared to have a cultural experience / exchange. We have really enjoyed welcoming Wwoofers from all over the world to our family over the last few years.
2 outdoor cats, 2 dogs, hens, 5 Jacob sheep.
NON SMOKERS PLEASE
We advise wwoofers to have insurance.
Children are learning French and Spanish so practise would be helpful!!
|Preview host||Our Victorian walled garden in its 3rd year of restoration after some years of inactivity. In the first 2 years most of the efforts and resources were spent reclaiming the garden from weeds and brambles. |
The garden now provides vegetables and soft fruit to residents staying on the estate, visitors to the area and locals in and around Lochaline.
Ideally we would like a volunteer/s with experience of horticulture however guidance will be given. Duties are dependent on experience but may include, grass cutting, weeding, sowing and planting, harvesting and serving customers.
The area is rugged, remote and breathtakingly beautiful. It is a couple of miles from the village of Lochaline and a relatively short journey to Fort William, the nearest town, which has most amenities. There is also a small ferry to take you to the Isle of Mull.
Accommodation is a 3 bedroom self catering unit with TV, and WiFi available, which you may be sharing with other WWOOFers. Meals won't be provided but an allowance can be allocated for supplies.
|Preview host||My vision is creating a place of sanctuary, healing, beauty and harmony for nature and people to thrive in, and as a contribution to the future - it's in its early stages! The land has a sacred, magical quality, and there are two standing stones in my fields. I'm growing vegetables and fruit organically, no dig, along permaculture lines, creating a forest garden, and planting trees on the land. I'm working co-creatively with nature's intelligences, and learning as I go. |
Those willing to contribute to the hard work here, and to learn and benefit from closer connection with nature and the sanctuary here are welcome. Work over the colder months will be: clearing scrub and brambles, scything, digging, tree planting, wood chopping, some work in veg garden. Small DIY, building/carpentry projects for those with skills.
I have a friend sharing the house, and two cats. It is a quiet life here; I enjoy being in nature, gardening and reading. There is internet, but no TV. I try to keep our impact low here, both inside and out.
|Preview host||Five acre market garden; organic using permaculture and some biodynamic principles. Mostly self sufficient in veg + fruit with excess being sold in local organic shop. We provide local organic cut flowers to florist, organic shop and direct sales from the farm and Saturday Llanidloes market. We make our own bread, preserves, wine, beer and press apples for juice in season. |
Musical family that enjoy cycling, sailing, and canoeing.
I am a horticultural tutor, teaching organics and environment, active in community garden projects and promote grow your own. Our field is 1.5 miles from our house on the way into town. People can camp/caravan at the field, where we have a communal kitchen, composting loo and sink. People might be able to stay at the house, depending on how much space we have at the time as we do B&B. We always have a bike at the field, and it takes no time from there to get into town.
|Preview host||We are a large Soil Association certified farm. We have cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and alpacas. It is in an area of outstanding beauty and is of great historical interest. We rear our animals to be slaughtered locally and then cut and prepared at the farm butchery for retail. We do a wide variety of work from farming to selling, preparing the land and working with animals to cutting up meat and packaging, finally selling to the customer. |
We also take students from agricultural colleges and also those who want to or need to learn English as part of there education.
It can be great fun but hard work. We look forward to hearing from you.
We like people who talk and are chatty. Even if your English is not good, it will only get better if you try. We are here to encourage and help.
We are a non smoking farm.
We do like students to stay as long as possible as this allows us to give them responsibility in areas on the farm.
|Preview host||We are a mixture: family home, garden renowned for its roses and borders, food grower, art & events venue. Sometimes it is quiet, and at other times very busy. I wanted to put 1-5 for the number of adult hosts, as I am sometimes alone but sometimes not, and there are gardeners and others here by day. |
We suit wwoofers who are fairly confident and independent, but the garden work is supervised. During the early months of the year, we need general garden help - blowing leaves, making compost, planting and mulching. In the spring and summer, the emphasis changes to picking and preserving produce, as well as general garden maintenance. This summer (2018) is our biennial sculpture exhibition, so we will also need help during our installation period in May and while the exhibition is in progress.
We are veggie-centric: we eat little meat or fish, and we welcome vegetarians and vegans. We can host meat eaters, but they won't eat meat every day! Wwoofers must be able to cook for themselves sometimes.
|Preview host||I have an family run organic apple |
juice company. I have just started and it's very exciting times. I have support from my family/ friends however they work and I am in need of a willing volunteer for an great and positive learning opportunity which could lead to further opportunities with us if you like.
Looking for late july onwards! Apple season :)
You don’t need to drive !
I have accommodation rooms and social area on the top floor of the family farm.
We make fresh apple juice with nothing added.
We are doing food festivals on the weekends.
Looking for someone who can embrace this opportunity, who is positive, physically able and must be able to drive. Ideally interested in learning, hard work and looking to be part of the business. Ideally 18-50 years old but nothing set in stone.
This is a great opportunity to join a fun, positive, friendly up and coming business interacting with the general public.
|Preview host||We are a small organic farm close to the town and the coast. We have sheep, pigs, poultry, plant nursery, we have eco pods and cottages and a camp site. We also have a children's craft studio using seashells. |
The accommodation is in the main farmhouse and meal are communal.
|Preview host||Established in 1998, we are a 5 acres healing centre and permaculture smallholding. We grow vegetables, keep chickens and bees, manage orchards and maintain an abundant nature rich land. We also offer courses and individual sessions using breathwork and taoist practises. |
What we offer WWOOFers is a beautiful place to be and work, close to Glastonbury, and beautiful comfortable accommodation in our cabin, caravan, tipi or bell-tent. By joining in with the gardening and land maintenance jobs of the season or helping build retreat spaces, we can teach a wide range of organic permaculture practises and building skills, as well as chicken and natural bee-keeping. We are a small friendly community that would particularly suit more independent and sociable WWOOFers - sometimes meals will be shared with our family, sometimes with other WWOOFers and sometimes we will provide you with ingredients to prepare meals yourself. We look forward to welcoming you into our lives, Dan, Maya, and Jameela.
|Preview host||S.A. Symbol holder's 7 acre family holding, 1.5 acres vines. 0.75 acre orchard interplanted with cane fruit plus another 1.5 acre of fruit.

Babbinswood Farm is 185 acres; 170 acres of pasture, 1 acre fruit and vegetable garden with two polytunnels, 4 acres of mixed woodland which is used by groups for overnight camping, outdoor activities and bush craft during the summer months
The farm is managed by my middle daughter, Casha and her husband Adam. Casha has a micro-dairy, rearing calves naturally with their mother cows and selling milk directly to customers from the farm; the remaining grassland is used to graze sheep using Holistic Planned Grazing. Also at the farm is my veterinary practice where I practice holistic therapies.. My youngest daughter, Ally, also lives with me in the farm house and she is creating a farm shop here at the farm as well as hosting a Food Assembly hub for local producers.
|Preview host||Our Farm is set underneath Ham Hill on the borders of Somerset, Devon and Dorset. On 200 acres of steep gras we rear beef ( Ruby Red Devons ) sheep ( Jacobs ) and Iron age pigs. Mark is our farm manager and he lives on site with his wife Lisa and their children . |
I am the owner and live here with my wife and two Children 9 and 7.
Mark manages the whole farm on his own and always needs some strong working hands who are happy to work with animals and to help us with fencing and managing our 50 acres of woodland.
This summer we would ideally like 2 or three strong hands to help clear the woods of fallen trees and help with farm maintenance.
Accommodation will be in the farm outbuildings . Two beds in the mezzanine of a barn and one bed in the ''Studio'' . There is a shared loo and shower room.
We would feed you and treat you as one of the ''family''.
|Preview host||We are Welsh speaking family, situated near the shore of Bala Lake, the biggest natural lake in Wales in the south of Snowdonia National Park. Bala is a small town within walking distance with a few shops and a leisure centre. |
We live on an acre of land that has woodland, stream, a garden and 2 polytunnels to grow our food. We have chickens, a dog and a few cats. We are on a very low income so our lifestyle may seem quite simple to you. We use as little electricity and water as possible, fell our own wood for heating and our diet is mostly simple, homemade but nourishing.
Our property is vegetarian and is the ethos of how the land is managed and we do our best to tread lightly on our land.
Accommodation is a small 4 berth caravan which can accommodate 2 adults and two young children and 3 meals are provided daily.
I'm looking for help with getting and keeping on top of the land and the outside buildings.
Families are particularly welcomed.
|Preview host||Glenelg is a very beautiful and quite isolated peninsula that overlooks the Isle of Skye.This is an old manse in its own grounds (3.5 acres) one mile from the sea. We do B&B and self catering and we look after cultural study groups from time to time. Our walled garden is cultivated with two polytunnels, vegetable patch, raised beds and orchard. |
|Preview host||We (Timothy and Charlotte) are presently living in temporary accommodation 5 miles from Baldarroch with a small organic vegetable garden |
We are presently building a house on our farm over the next 12 months and are starting to create our new garden and grounds including a Lochside and woodland walk. We have several projects planned for the near future.
There may also be work on the farm maintaining woodland, hedges and fencing and assisting with a small pheasant shoot
WWOOFers should have an interest in the outdoors, wildlife and wild animal management.
Familiarity with machinery (chainsaws if qualified) mowers, tractors will be a benefit. Drivers are also welcome.
Work is as varied as possible from day to day.
|Preview host||Hello there! |
We are a young family that are running a smallholding in a lovely village in the Chilterns.
In addition to me, my husband and daughter, we have a Border Collie (Jasmine) and two cats (Leila & Sawsan).
We have 4 acres of land and exciting times ahead! Currently we have 30 chickens, a polytunnel, a no-dig permaculture garden and an orchard.
We love cooking and make a wide range of organic food (kombucha, breads, kimchi, jams, butter, yoghurt, kefir, herbal tea/medicines, herbal ointments, pasta) and would be delighted to share tips on the both the garden and cooking with you. We like to use our own produce as much as possible and also love to forage from the local countryside.
The surrounding area is beautiful and there are lovely walks (a stones throw away!), villages and other things to do. London is also easily accessible via a 40 min train.
|Preview host||We live on a small hillside, surrounded by a large private estate. We have 4 fields, one rented to a local farmer, the others grazed by 2 alpacas and, during the summer months, by RDA ponies. We have a large garden, with lawns, shrubs and trees, a woodland area with pond (where we have reared mallards) and 2 delapidated semidetached cottages in need of attention, as well as a new vegetable garden near solar panels in a corner of a field. We have a few acres of amenity woodlands, planted circa 20 years ago (Robert is passionate about forestry!). |
We need help in the garden with weeding, building stone walls, stabilising the cottages. We want to improve the vegetable patch and create paths and a fenced hen run as we have foxes, polecats and badgers and have lost our hens in June (again). We need help in the woods with weed control, thinning and firewood extraction.
|Preview host||We live in a picturesque area between the Mourne Mountains and the Dromara Hills, with a well established garden with fruit trees/bushes, vegetable beds, hedging , lawn, a pasture field and apple orchard. |
We have a 7 year old (home educated), a 4 year old, and a 1 year old and are looking to welcome WWOOFers to give much needed assistance with the organic fruit and vegetable gardens over the coming season.

|Preview host||My husband and I have been here for 20 years, the family has been here for over 170 years. We farm non-organic dairy cows, but our 2.8 acre 18th century walled garden is as organic as possible. Head gardener Anna Hudson is in charge. Everything is grown as close to organic as possible. We use no spray or chemicals. We do use manure from our 1000 non-organic cows. |
We want to help people to use and understand the seasons. We hold day courses on growing fruit and vegetables. As a food historian I use old cookery and gardening books to guide us.
Short term WWOOFing will work best, but we will consider special requests.
|Preview host||Family run smallholding with holiday rentals and Barn venue for courses. |

|Preview host||We are a family living in a large 19th Century house in 2 acres of grounds. We are maintaining an organic garden, keep chickens and have a cat. |
We are involved with a lot with artists and musicians through an arts organisation that we run. We welcome good company and enthusiastic help in particular with the vegetables and other tasks around household and garden. We also like good cooking from all over the world.
Woofers normally get a large room with a double bed and en-suite bathroom/toilet for their own use.
As our children are now at University, we prefer to take couples or friends, so that you can't get lonely during the day when we are working.
Huntly train station is 2 minutes away from our house.
We look forward to hearing from you.
