Interested in relocating to the Lake District with a great work/life balance?

We are a 5-Star holiday and glamping site in the Lake District National Park. We are renowned as a friendly clean family park and are very proud of that reputation. We are currently looking to enhance our warden team with friendly individuals (or a couple) who enjoy “making a difference” and have a willingness to provide a friendly face and a 5-star experience to every one of our customers. The job is a customer orientated role, offering accommodation in a brand new caravan holiday home within our nature filled woodland site where deer, squirrel and badger roam.

Skelwith Fold offer the opportunity for a complete change of lifestyle during these unusual times where there is no commute and the office is open air. In exchange we are looking for active, outdoorsy people who enjoy physical work, fresh air and the vagaries of the British weather!

The role is varied, every day is different, but includes customer service, ensuring the 5-star upkeep of the park, cleaning of customer facilities and glamping units, reception and shop work, out of hours customer assistance, gardening and light maintenance. According to our staff work at Skelwith Fold is “extremely rewarding”.

Previous experience isn’t needed but a “can-do” attitude is! Job training will be provided.

Work hours would be 40 per week with two days off for relaxation or adventure. This is a seasonal position with immediate start to end November with optional return for 2022 season.

£9 per hour.

Applicants should send CV’s with covering letter to:
