What can I do?
Opportunities are varied and flexible; from volunteering every week or for a shorter period of time for an event or project. You could also help to raise funds in the shop or take part in fundraising, welcome visitors to ensure they make the most of their visit, or get involved in conservation work.
‘It’s a lovely situation: you could be feeling really rotten and then look out the window at the gorgeous view and think "oh, it’s stunning here." It’s homely as well; it’s a lovely atmosphere.’
- Judith, room guide and event volunteer
