Hankley Edge

We only except couples or two friends and not singles. And preferably for at least three weeks up to 12 weeks.
Hi, We are Rory & Liz & we live in a beautiful part of England surrounded by our own land & nature. We live on the edge of a huge common (great for walking or mountain biking) & yet we are only an hour from London. It is a fifteen minute walk to our village shop & pub (shown in the photos).
We are looking for volunteers to help us with our garden, animals & home. We have a lot of outside space that needs maintaining. We also have a lot of pets - two dogs, three cats & eleven chickens! We can offer education on animal care particularly puppies when we have some. You will need to be physically fit, love being outdoors & have a good standard of English both verbal & written

We have been hosting volunteers for over five years via another platform that is no longer using UK hosts. We have excellent references on that platform (Workaway). Our volunteers love living in 'Mable' our modern mobile home located in our field. It has a fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms, a living room with TV, bathroom with shower and central heating. We are at home most of the day & often chat with our volunteers and we enjoy cooking for them one evening a week (or they cook for us!). We provide a generous allowance for food & take them supermarket shopping one day a week. Our volunteers love having their independence. We often host digital nomads. We help our volunteers to explore the local area. It is very peaceful here - you will be at one with nature. Most of our tasks are helping in the garden, vegetable garden, woods - some dog walking. And some domestic chores on rain days

Hankley Edge is one of the most wonderful places I have ever been, Liz and Rory are fantastic hosts, they open the doors of their home to make you feel welcome, the tasks are very pleasant and easy, always with clear instructions and you have all the tools Whatever you need, you have your mobile home with everything you need to be comfortable, a huge field to enjoy and the best thing is to be with the animals, Ruli and Perú are the best dogs in the world and the cats are the sweetest furry animals, we had A great time, a completely recommended place surrounded by nature.

I loved the time I was in this place. The accommodation for volunteers is great, I really enjoyed spending time with the different animals, even though my favorite part was enjoying the walks with Rully and Peru.
Rory and Liz are great people who care about the well-being of the volunteers, create spaces to enjoy incredible dinners and learn more about the local culture.

This volunteering is totally recommended.

My time at Hankley Edge was so sweet. All the tasks were laid out clearly either the night before or the morning of, and Rory & Liz always offered help/guidance when needed. Mable the mobile was a clean and safe space to call home and I loved spending time in the field and making bonfires at night :) The bikes available are in great shape, and the scenes and towns close-by are breathtaking. Ruuli, Peru, the cats, and the ducks are all in my heart and I truly am so grateful for my stay. Xo

Had a fantastic time with Liz & Rory on their property. All tasks were clearly communicated with us at the start of each day and if I ever had any questions Rory was great in explaining. Had all the tools to do the tasks to a great standard. Loved walking the dogs and hanging out with the cats as well. Also loved Rory’s dinners! Highly recommend this volunteer experience.
