About Conservation in the Lake District

Come and work in one of the most iconic sites in the Lake District.

Join the ranger team in and around Ullswater to help conserve this beautiful area for the enjoyment of our many visitors. Gain an insight into our valuable conservation work by carrying out a variety of tasks, such as public access work, Himalayan balsam pulling, scrub management and boundary maintenance. 

About the accommodation

Located in its own peaceful wooded grounds above Lake Windermere with great fell views. The bunkhouse consists of two single-storey cabin-style constructions: the Longland and the Acland. The Longland is made up of three buildings with a large common room with log burner and separate blocks for the dormitories and shower block. The Acland is a self-contained single building. There are large private grounds with a fire pit and barbecue areas.

Notes for guests

Steel toe-capped boots are advisable but not essential, and gardening gloves as well.

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