Fresh air, fun, hard work and a challenge: the alternative activity holiday. You'll enjoy a fantastic introduction to the work of the National Trust – and a chance to experience amazing scenery and explore wonderful sites.

We run eight working holidays a year:

Four Brecon Beacons holidays in summer
There'll be lots of walking and hard graft – but fabulous views, a great team spirit and banter.

Your work will help to repair eroded paths and minimise the impact of thousands of walkers in the stunning scenery of the Beacons – Pen y Fan, Corn Du, Cribyn.

Four variety weeks
A perfect description. You'll get involved in various work at a variety of sites across mid and south-east Wales. 

These holidays help us catch up on essential estate work and include invasive species management and more hardy nature conservation work like scrub removal.
