At first sight, some people think we are a holiday cottage company, but our charity offers so much more than short breaks; we are a force for good in the world. Through the sensitive restoration of historic buildings, we stimulate and nurture traditional craft skills across the country. Every Landmark project yields deep historical research and encounters with the extraordinary places in our care inspire creative responses by artists and writers. We share our buildings with their communities on free public open days all year round. Every building we save, and every Landmark holiday someone chooses to take, contributes to the survival of precious heritage.
