Situated around three miles outside of Ambleside in the beautiful English Lake District, High Wray was the first of the National Trust’s residential volunteering centres to be built. With two full time and one seasonal member of staff we are probably now the National Trust’s busiest volunteer centre.

Meeting place is normally the basecamp.
The purpose built basecamp is situated well away from civilization in some woods above High Wray. The main wooden chalet contains the sleeping accommodation, kitchen/dining area and the washing facilities. A further two wooden chalets contain extra sleeping in one and cooking, dining and recreation space in the other.
