The National Trust

The National Trust is a charity and is completely independent of Government. We rely for income on membership fees, donations and legacies, and revenue raised from our commercial operations.

We have over 3.6 million members and 55,000 volunteers. More than 14 million people visit our pay for entry properties, while an estimated 50 million visit our open air properties.

We protect and open to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments.

But it doesn’t stop there. We also look after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves, villages - for ever, for everyone.

Beautiful houses.
Amazing gardens.
Inspiring stories.

The sheer scale and enormous variety of National Trust houses and gardens means that wherever you go, you're never far from a great day out.

196 150 Craflwyn (235 180)
In the 19th century the farmland at Craflwyn was landscaped and exotic trees were introduced. Rhododendron was particularly fashionable and it was planted all around the estate. The Trust is now working hard to prevent the spread of rhododendron, as it chokes other plants and is poisonous to livestock. This conservation clearance work has uncovered a woodland garden with ponds, rockeries and waterfalls.
