Welcome to Beech Hill Community
A Quick Bit About Us
Beech Hill Community was formed in 1983 in a large property in rural Mid Devon.
The community is a housing co-operative with approximately 17 adult members and a baby living in a variety of accommodations.

“Wow! This was such an amazing experience. The house and grounds are amazing. The community members were warm and accommodating. The connection with other volunteers was priceless. The walks in the nearby areas were unforgettable. Thank you! Miss you all already!"

"The folks at Beech Hill have created a community beyond my expectations. My two weeks working with our crew and the community members was nothing short of joyful and lovely. We spent our days with different community members engaging in many various activities around the land from processing wood to gardening to earth plaster construction and beyond.."

“I cannot recommend this workaway enough!! The community members were so kind and accommodating and we felt at home almost immediately. They're so attentive and always checking in to make sure your needs are met and that you're having a safe and comfortable experience.”
We regularly host volunteers to help us, to share our lovely space, skills and experiences and to enable people to see what living in a community is like. We love the new energy that volunteers bring and we value what they contribute and the cultural exchange.
“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.
