Meet like-minded people and explore Lanhydrock's past by sharing our stories with visitors. A real chance to get behind the scenes in an English country house. If you'd like, you can even carry out this role in Victorian costume to really bring the past into the present.
Costumed cameo characters
You’ll really step back in time in this role, playing the part of someone who worked at Lanhydrock in the late Victorian period. You'll carry out their daily routine of tasks around the house, involve visitors with what you're doing and share stories about the people who lived and worked here over a century ago.
Garden tour guides
Give informal tours of the gardens, or chat to people about our stunning displays. While you're here, pick up the latest tips and news from the garden team to pass on to visitors, who love hearing about Lanhydrock's fabulous historic gardens.
Members side volunteer
Lanhydrock's nursery provides plants for the Trust's shops and gardens across the south-west. If you're green-fingered, then helping us propagate and care for our young plants could be just the role for you.
