About Family fun in Upper Wharfedale

Enjoy time as a family helping to protect the countryside with our rangers.

Come to Upper Wharfedale for a combination of fun work and fun activities. You’ll be helping the rangers in their day-to-day work which may be footpath repairs, fencing, dry-stone walling or cutting down small trees. We’ll also organise lots of other activities too.

About the accommodation

The accommodation is located on the edge of the village of Buckden and at the foot of 702m high Buckden Pike. It is a 200-year-old converted barn with a large living room with open views up to Wharfedale into Langstrothdale. It is an ‘upside down’ building with the living room, kitchen and one bunk room on the first floor and two bunk rooms and bathroom on the ground floor. Each bunk room has two bunk beds. One is en suite, the other two share a bathroom/toilet. Town Head Bunkhouse does not have a garden next to the building but there is a National Trust picnic area with a built-in barbecue just 100 yards away.

Notes for guests

We will spend time doing lots of other activities as well as the work tasks, including some gorge walking, weather permitting. Please bring footwear such as old trainers for this activity.

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