Volunteers are essential to Killerton and work in lots of different areas such as room guiding, the shop, the secondhand bookshop, the plant centre, gardening and countryside care. If you love meeting people and making new friends, then join our friendly and dedicated team. Help bring Killerton to life and keep it open for future generations.
Buggy drivers help bring the property to life for those less able. Buggies are available to help transport visitors from the stable block to the house and around the gardens. If you like meeting new people, talking about your interests and spending your days in a stunning location, then this is the role for you.
