One of Wales’ most important historic houses is appealing for volunteers to help maintain its Grade I-listed gardens, support house tours and events.

Gregynog Hall on the outskirts of Tregynon is open to everyone, every day and is run by a charitable trust who are keen to open up the house and its unique history to visitors with more house and garden tours so that they can share with the wider world.

The hall offers bed and breakfast accommodation as well as conferences and events throughout the year.

People who can spare their time and volunteer to help with tours and guided visits, support their gardener and estate team or help with the delivery of events are invited to pop along to Gregynog's volunteers open afternoon on Tuesday, February 27, to find out more and talk to staff and existing volunteers. They will provide refreshments and there will be plenty of opportunities to discover how they can help at Gregynog.


Those who can't make it to the open afternoon can call Gregynog Hall on 01686 650224 or email at any time to chat about the ways they can help.

Gregynog’s Director of Business Development, Lydia Bassett, said: “Volunteering at Gregynog is a great way to meet new people and learn new skills, or brush up on your existing skills to add to your CV. We will also treat you to a hot drink and cake in our Courtyard Café on the days when you are working and we can reimburse mileage expenses.

“Gregynog is a very special place – with 750 acres to explore and lots of different roles which you can support. Come and join us in caring for one of Wales' most extraordinary historic houses and help us keep Gregynog's magic going for generations to come.”
