National Trust have been caring for special places for 125 years and have provided holiday accommodation since the 1930s. They started with only a few cottages, carefully restoring unoccupied buildings on our estates. With the help from your funds, they were able to refurbish more and more historic buildings, working with local, heritage craftspeople to protect the unique character of these places. Today they manage over 400 cottages, bothies, bunkhouses and campsites across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
