    A great experience working alongside Duncan helping out with his project. What a place this is going to become. The work was tough but fair and accomodation and food agreements were both met. All in all a great experience for a working traveller.

    I had a really good experience here. From the start everything was well arranged and communication was clear. We never worked more than what was agreed and never in areas we weren't comfortable with. The place itself was really nice and accommodation was super comfortable! Blackpool located in a nice area, surrounded by a lot of popular spots in the UK, such as the lake district, Liverpool and Manchester. The city is extremely affordable and offers a lot of options if you don't want to just stay home all the time. All in all, a good time! Just be ready to work hard and exercise your creativity! Thanks for the experience!

    Great place to work! Awesome environment with like-minded people and the town is really easy to get around. Plus, you can extend your experience by taking the train to Scotland, the Lake District, Liverpool, Manchester, etc. I loved my time at Somewhere Different and I'd recommend it to any Digital Nomad going to the UK.

    The work was mainly what we agreed on and the host was quite flexible in finding jobs which were more suitable for me, i.e. mostly painting and decorating. We stuck to the work hours of 8:30am to 1:30pm and were able to socialise and travel to some nice areas nearby in the evening to wind down. There was an issue with the kitchen and shower to begin with with cold running water in kitchen and the shower was a bit blocked but this was later fixed and I understood the house was in need of renovation so wasn't a major shock. Was paid on time and taken to go shopping so overall was a good experience.

    How we work

    We run a tight ship. 5 hours of work a day, 5 days a week. Work hard play hard is the tempo.  You will be working with the owner of the ho and other volunteers, having a laugh with them and learning building skills as you go. You have your own room, as we are a ho and no open yet. Three meals a day are provided for you. You cook yourself in a fully fitted kitchen. As long as you are a self-starter and happy to work hard and work smart, you will be well taken care of.
