Highgrove House

If you are interested in horses, love dogs and cats and want to experience country life in a beautiful part of rural Shropshire please get in touch. We are quite remote but a railway station and supermarket are within walking distance. You will need strong, preferably waterproof footwear and warm clothing is advisable for the colder months

The work involved is mainly with the horses, handling them and caring for them on a day to day basis, it is outside in all weather and physical, although not excessively so. Experience is preferred but not entirely necessary as we are happy to help you learn as you go. Please remember horses are big, powerful, majestic animals. 😊 Riding is not involved. It can be wet, cold and muddy, it can also be stunningly beautiful and a wonderful place to be. We work as a team. You will be living as one of the family.

I felt like when I used to live with my family. The work don’t look like a work, was so good to stay around all the horses/dogs/cats that was a pleasure to wake up everyday and do the tasks.

All of the family members and also the horses owners are so gentles and lovelies, that help the volunteers since the beginning to felt like in home.

The working hours and times are well defined, the tasks are always supervised and all queries are always well explained.

I will surely remember forever the time I was there

Was amazing! Terry is lovely and Andrew is a angel and a master in the kitchen (if I fated his the guilty certainly is Andrew).I room was welcoming and warm, I was super at ease it felt like I was home! The work is easy, take care de horses. Guarantee your food on time, clean the fields and check the water two times to day. If you have time paint the stables. The important here is take care the pets like you would like to take care yours. If you like the animals like me, this is the place! I'd lovely stay more time but the city is very small and the transport is far and expend a long time

It was the first Worldpackers experience and it couldn't have been better. I loved learning about horses from Terri because she is a patient, generous and very special person. The place is fantastic and the care for the horses warms the heart. If you love horses and also love to share knowledge, this is the right place! I am grateful to Terri for opening the house to me, as I felt so welcomed. Thanks also to Andy for the delicious dinners and the many stories. Thanks to grandma Glória for her laughs and the incredible Christmas pudding. Being at Highgove House was like being in my own home. <3

Craven Arms has very little to offer for entertainment but there's a train station that can take you to many cute towns from around the area, nice hikes and all the way to bigger cities with a lot more to do if you have money to spare. There's a local grocery with good pricings and mostly anything you need. The job is very straightforward and not too demanding. I highly recommend to listen carefully to the instructions, get into a good pace and do your best. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly with lots of information to learn from.

Millions of thanks Terri, Andy and Family
