LAKE DISTRICT group accommodation & woodland


Rookhow has a wonderful supportive community of volunteers who love coming to help out with indoor and outdoor work, be it hedge planting, dry stone walling, chopping kindling, brushing leaves off the yurt, DIY jobs, polishing wood, sorting the garage or helping with the library. In the last year volunteers have given over 2,000 hours of their time to Rookhow.

We meet on Fridays with cake and chat in between working.

We reimburse volunteers their travel expenses to get to and from Rookhow.
