We need you! With over 200 acres of land to look after we can only maintain this glorious estate with the help of volunteers. If you think you can spare a few days then we will put you up in one of our self-catering properties free of charge in exchange for five hours help per day. You can also have a day off (for good behaviour!) to enjoy the dale  if you stay for five days or more! Caravanning volunteers can stay gratis on our lovely big ‘Volunteer Area’ pitch (with electric hook up/cold water tap/hard standing/chem waste disposal point) in exchange for 3 hours help per day.

We’re VERY relaxed and flexible, and the work is never too onerous, usually involving outdoor jobs such as gardening, path tidying, painting… that kind of thing. All of our volunteers (thus far!) have had a great time and have come back for more. You can register interest in one of these ways:

  • Ring Jon on 017684 82308
  • Use the contact page via the tab above
  • Or email us at ‘mail@patterdalehallestate.com’ quoting ‘I want to be your slave, oh glorious master’.

I hope to see you soon!
