Could you help bring Hardys cottage to life?

Volunteer Alban OBrien with visitor

Hardy's Cottage is a beautiful place full of fascinating stories; but it wouldn’t be the place it is without people to help bring it to life and we're looking for your help.

No prior knowledge of Thomas Hardy is required, you can learn ‘on the job’ from our knowledgeable team or from our reference material, and you don't need to become a Hardy expert. What’s important is the warmth of your welcome and a willingness to help the National Trust. In return you will be welcomed into a friendly and supportive team, and get to meet and chat with visitors from all over the world, as well as spend time in one of the most beautiful cottages in West Dorset!

We are open 7 days a week and no minimum commitment is required. Contact or call 01305 262366 to find out more.
