Volunteering at Packwood

Visitors in the Great Hall

Surrounded by gardens and countryside Packwood is a place of dreams and adventure. Baron Ash created at Packwood his own private world where visitors would come to enjoy his vision of an English Country house. Packwood's volunteer team play a vital role in sharing the love of this beautiful property with others and bring these stories to life 363 days a year.

Below is a little bit of information about volunteering at Packwood and a few words from some of our current volunteers on why they love volunteering here so much.

Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the property and we've got lots of interesting volunteer roles in our friendly and enthusiastic volunteer team. All of our volunteers play a vital role in helping visitors enjoy their time with us here at Packwood.

If you are interested in joining our team, now is a great time to start. We are now open 7 days a week and we are looking for fun, flexible and friendly people to join our team.

What our volunteers say about being part of the Packwood team

Sheila works in the shop and enjoys meeting and greeting people who are enjoying a day out, 'I particularly admire the garden borders in June and July, when the colours are fantastic.' 

" One of the best things about being a volunteer, for me, is that you get to see the property through all the seasons. We’ve got a very warm and welcoming team which is the main reason I love to keep coming back."
- Margaret Phelps, Roon Guide

Bryan enjoys his time volunteering as a gardener in the kitchen garden. What he likes most about working here is 'the feeling that one is helping to sustain the wonderful countryside and houses in the UK.'
Protecting special places like Packwood is a big job and our volunteers play a huge role in this. Whether they're helping to conserve the collection, keeping our website up to date or greeting our visitors with a friendly face, we'd like to say a huge thank you for all their hard work throughout the year.
