Spend time in the glorious gardens as a volunteer

Would you like to help make our visitors' day memorable and special, as well as make new friends and learn something new yourself?

As a volunteer there are so many opportunities to apply your own skills, such as piano playing or gardening, and learn new skills for yourself. At Coleton Fishacre, we rely on volunteers' help in all areas - from our magical valley garden to the house, to ensure that this special place is cherished and enjoyed by all our visitors for years to come.

If you would like more information and feel you would like to learn new skills or pass on your own, please email us or call our dedicated volunteer line 01803 661853.
