About Conservation near the coast

Help the Northumberland Coast rangers keep the beautiful coastline top quality with vegetation management, footpath repairs and other duties.

Get stuck into a variety of conservation tasks at one of several properties along the North Northumberland Coast. We need your help with tasks such as clearing vegetation, including grass and scrub, path restoration, as well as work on dunes and other coastal habitats. 

About the accommodation

The bunkhouse is a traditional conversion of two cottages formerly used for Victorian woodland workers. Located in Northumberland, just 12 miles from Alnwick and in the centre of the vast Cragside Estate. There are fabulous views overlooking Tumbleton Lake and surrounding hills.
