From clearing local woodland to helping out around the office, we have a number of exciting volunteering opportunities available all year round.
Working Holidays – volunteer with us!
A large portion of the Estate is cared for by our tenant farmer, but there is still plenty of conservation and habitat regeneration work to do in our extensive woodland, to ensure that wildlife can thrive.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life but share a passion for getting outdoors in the Lake District, for wildlife, and for habitat conservation. Many volunteers return to us year on year and have become part of the Estate’s extended family of loyal supporters. All want to ensure that the beauty of the area is preserved and enhanced for the enjoyment of all.

We are always looking for extra support from volunteers, especially during the offseason. Our offseason is from October half term until Easter, at which time we can provide free accommodation in one of our self-catering units. Any other time of year, we’ll happily provide you with a complimentary spot in our plush caravan site.
"Why is volunteering at The Estate so special? apart from the amazing location the site team make you feel part of the team, extended family, that's rare & special"
