Become a House Volunteer and help us to care for Chastleton House.

Do you care about Historic Buildings?

Chastleton house is one of the most unusual houses in the care of the National Trust. Chastleton House has an unremarkable history; what makes it unusual is its timeless setting and atmosphere of undisturbed age and continuity. The only way we can open this unique house to the public is with your help. Volunteers bring a huge variety of skills that are so important in helping us to carry out our work.

What is the role of a Room Guide? Room Guides enable us to open Chastleton House by welcoming our visitors and bringing the rooms to life by explaining stories from the property.

Do I need special qualifications?

If you enjoy meeting new people and take an interest in historic buildings and their surroundings, then you are already well qualified to become a Chastleton House volunteer. Most volunteers give a half day, either fortnightly or weekly, in the open season. A rota is arranged and we try to fit you in on the day which suits you best. All volunteers have a chance to relax over a cup of tea or coffee in the Volunteers' Room. This is a great chance to make new friends and catch up with the other volunteers working on that day.
