Volunteer at Tyntesfield

Making new friends, working in an amazing place and knowing that you're helping a great cause - three fabulous reasons to get volunteering.

With one of the largest volunteer teams in the National Trust, Tyntesfield is a unique place to get involved.

Our volunteers help with everything from gardening to catering, and from  house tours to conserving the collection...

" I love this quirky and enchanting place and not just the House; the grounds, the woodland and the general lie of the land all provide a perfect backdrop to the House. Enthusing our visitors with a similar feeling is very rewarding, so I try to talk about Tyntesfield and its people with humour, hopefully bringing smiles to their faces. "
- Dave Chillistone, Room Interpreter
