The only National Trust house in Leicestershire, Stoneywell's team of volunteers has grown considerably since first opening to the public in 2015. Over 200 people support the property in a range of roles, from assisting with conservation and admin work to leading guided tours and repairing the dry stone walls.

This year we have introduced four brand new roles to help us create memorable experiences for all of our visitors and raise vital funds to enable us to continue our conservation work in the cottage, garden and woodland.

Car park assistant - a unique opportunity to greet everyone as they arrive, help visitors get the most out of their time here and ensure the safe management of the car park.
