A Place to be Real Together

Roll Up Your Sleeves

Work, share and laugh!


Tue 15 Oct - Sun 20 Oct 2019


Event is full. :-(


If you’ve never tried one of these weeks you may not realise how special they are. Ideal for practical people who like to lend a hand and do something worthwhile. Sharing jobs round the house and grounds we all get a real sense of achievement and camaraderie – working hard (up to 6 hours a day) but enjoying ourselves too with plenty of laughs and diversions. We aim to vary the jobs to suit all abilities.

Unless our apple harvest fails, a major activity will be picking and juicing apples from our orchard.

For part of this week we may be welcoming visitors from Brittany, here to take part in a mini-festival of food, music and dance in nearby West Bay. The celebrations take their cue from the ‘Onion Johnnies’ who used to sell Breton onions from their bicycles all round the UK.  A chance to practice your French too!


We aim to vary the jobs to suit all abilities.
