Places needing Members
My name is Rosie, and I used to live at Birchwood Hall Community until I moved away to take up a new job. I was really sad to leave as it’s an extraordinary place to live, for very un-extraordinary reasons. People are very genuine, respectful of each other’s space, and always ready to have fun. It was amazing to live in an environment with people who care about each other, and look out for each other in tricky times. Everyone eats together in the evenings, and this is an important part of community life. I miss the gentle mix of organisation and flux, the conversation, the laughs, the dry humour, the salad from the garden, but most of all the people. Birchwood is a wonderful place to live, and there is currently room for more members. Please send an e-mail to tell them about yourself if you’re interested in living communally, and they’ll take it from there. The members living at Birchwood Hall will look forward to hearing from you.
Nov 2020: Stop Press. We have cancelled all visits until further notice. We will continue to post out information packs though. We are always interested in meeting Potential Members and we would love enquires from energetic, enthusiastic, sociable people and young families. We live in an area of outstanding natural beauty in East Bergholt, famous for its links with John Constable. East Bergholt has good transport links and excellent primary and secondary schools within walking distance. Living spaces of all sizes become available at times. Potential members make several visits here over a period of time which is how we get to know each other. You have to buy into our community which means you must have capital (the amount depends on the size of space you buy). Small top up loans are occasionally available but not at the moment. Mortgages are not available. Send us a letter/email telling us all about yourselves to email@example.com and we will send you more information.

The Co-operative has eight shared houses, each with ten single-person bedrooms*. We’re sorry but we can only accept applications for single rooms in these houses and you must be the ONLY occupant (sorry no pets!).This means you will be living in a single occupancy room in a shared house with nine other single house-mates who have a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, ages and gender.Your room will measure approximately 3 metres square (ceiling height is approx. 2.42m) and is unfurnished, but includes a vanity unit, laminate flooring and double glazed windows. The rooms are small so if your belongings will not fit in your room, you’ll need to make alternative arrangements for them as storage space is strictly limited and communal areas cannot be used for personal storage.
Each shared house backs onto a large enclosed communal garden and has three floors with a shower and toilet on each, except on the first floor which has a bath. The shared kitchen has two cookers, two sinks, two fridge freezers and cupboards for food storage. All the houses have washing machines and some have microwaves.There is also a furnished communal area in the kitchen.
