About A week with the Lundy island ranger

Come and help us conserve the natural beauty of a peaceful and stunning Lundy Island.

Join the ranger for a week of practical conservation work on the stunning Lundy Island. Lundy is a SSSI, home to a wide rarity of special and important flora and fauna. You could be working on any part of the 3 mile by ½ mile island - on the heathland plateau, in one of the tree copses or on the scenic east coast sidelands. Work will range from dry-stone and mortar walling and fencing but primarily the eradication of the rhododendron as part of a 12-year+ project.  

About the accommodation

The Barn is situated in the centre of the island’s village. It has two dormitory rooms which are lined with varnished wood. It has a large open-plan living room/kitchen with a big open fire and, from the sleeping gallery, one of the best views of the island.

Facilities: open fire/woodburner.

Bedding: All bedding/linen is provided.

Notes for guests

What to bring: All Gloves provided, but sturdy (preferably steel toe-capped) boots would be needed. Good quality water proofs and extra layers will be required and preferably a second pair of footwear.

A standard kit list can be found on our Essential Information page.

Transport: Participants will need to book their own helicopter flight (which is not included in the price of the holiday). Be aware that the travel to and from the island is via helicopter and may be disrupted due to weather conditions but should be just delayed if it is. Any concerns contact the ranger (ranger@lundyisland.co.uk) or a member of the Bideford Shore Office.
