I stayed on the farm for a month and was an amazing first experience.
The location is good, almost 1 hour by train to London, but notice that you may not be able to go to London everyday, since we work until 5pm (with breaks).
The food is amazing and abundant.
The work can be hard sometimes but our “boss” is the best: KC, I am really glad to meet you, such a good person and flexible.
The accommodation has some details to be improved but I was really comfortable there.
The other volunteers I met, oh, I will miss you guys!

My experience here was great. you'll work in the farm and it's not close to the temple. It's a hardwork job but with no pressure. Our host is the sweetest ever. The indian food is amazing! The place makes you connect to the nature which i love so much. You need to be open to work hard in the farm and to follow some hare krishna rules that sometimes can be difficult depending on who you are or believe. For me the experience was great, but they need to improve the facilities like the caravan where we stay and this is the only reason why i'm not giving 5 stars. It was a plesure

The experience in Bhaktivedanta Manor was my first volunteer. I had a great opportunity to spend more time in the temple and get in touch with Krishna consciousness. The exchange was really amazing. I was open to learn with all of them.The accommodation is pretty good. The food is the best, Indian food every single day. I loved it. During the free days I really recommend walking around. The work on farm is a little hard labor. We have bhakti yoga classes, that is the same to say "Krishna consciousness" (it is about Bhagavad-Gita book). I got in touch with many lovely people there.
