Thatched Cottage Hotel

We love working with volunteers, interns and work experience students. We have welcomed over 450 volunteers to share in our businesses in recent years. We provide a valuable experience, support you with appropriate training, help you with your language skills (if necessary) and reward your contribution appropriately by looking after you well! We have received wonderfully positive feedback over the years from previous volunteers on many different platforms and look forward to welcome you to stay with us! If you are looking for a great experience, that will be useful to your career and language skills, then please apply to us - but please remember that we are a small hotel and not a party hostel!

Matthew and David have owned Escape Yachting for 12 years and the Thatched Cottage Hotel for 5 years. We are passionate hosts, who enjoy looking after our guests and working with enthusiastic staff and volunteers who show enthusiasm and commitment. In return, we provide everything you need during your time with us and ensure that you have an enjoyable and worthwhile experience, with many happy memories!

El sitio es genial, las tareas se respetan al igual que los horarios, pero es verdad que no hay el ambiente de voluntariado, no hay ambiente de familia, el resto de cosas todo bien.

We were very disappointed to read the review Victor left for us on Worldpackers. To say there is no volunteer atmosphere demonstrates more about the volunteer than the host, especially when we did so much to look after Victor during quarantine. The best volunteers make the most of their experiences when travelling, but, sadly, that is not the case for every volunteer.

The hotel is very welcoming, The work is really easy and he clearly outlines what is expected of you immediately. Surrounding food Matthew and David are very resourceful and orders all the food you would like. The area is very beautiful and peaceful, Brockenhurst is located in the heart of the new forest, so there are many places to explore in your free time, it’s also only a half hour train ride from the nearest cities.
Matthew is also very flexible regarding days off and takes tries to accommodate you as much as possible, I completely recommend this volunteering, you will not regret!

Foi a minha primeira experiência com a Wolrdpackers e foi incrível! Aprendi muito e toda a equipe sempre teve muita paciência em explicar tudo. Durante o mês que eu passei lá, tive conheci outros 9 viajantes, além dos staffs que em sua maioria eram locais, e foi muito bacana ter contato com realidades tao diferentes.
Melhorei muito o meu inglês, que era um dos meus objetivos e aprendi diversas coisas que eu nunca tinha feito na vida.
Agradeço muito aos anfitrioes pela oportunidade e estou super aberta caso alguém queira também viver a experiência e tiver alguma dúvida!

Great time. Knowing your schedule of work allows you to plan your days since the hotel is surrounded by the New Forest. You'll be working with professional staff - Renzo, Richard, Luke and Josh - who are just very comprehensible and helpful with you. Matthew and David will make sure you have plenty of what you need. It's a hotel and kitchen bussiness, so understanding your time as an "employer" of such definetly helps. I would recommend for anyone wanting to get more comfortable with everyday english, experiencing some housekeeping, kitchen work or just travelling to another country.
