About Coastal heathland management

Help to look after the fabulous heathland habitats around the North Pembrokeshire Coast.

Assist our rangers in looking after the heathland habitats of the North Pembrokeshire Coast, cutting back vegetation to allow livestock to graze effectively and to improve species diversity. You'll also spend one day exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast Path on a guided walk, then, depending on sea conditions, spend a day kayaking or surfing with the local outdoor activity provider Preseli Venture. Instructors and equipment will be supplied. You’ll need to be physically fit for the guided walk and tasks may require heavy lifting and working on rough terrain.

About the accommodation

Ysgubor Fawr (Large Barn) offers spacious accommodation with sweeping views across the North Pembrokeshire coast. The converted agricultural building also houses the North Pembrokeshire ranger work base. Two dormitory rooms sleep nine people in bunk beds and there are two separate rooms for full-time volunteers. There is a small grassed area at the back of the bunkhouse with picnic tables – an ideal spot for a barbecue and to watch the sunset over the Irish Sea.

Notes for guests

Please bring wellington boots. Aslo steel toe-capped boots are advisable but not essential. You will also need swimwear and outdoor footwear - not crocs - that you don't mind getting wet (for coastal adventure day).

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