About Grafting on the Greensand Ridge

Come and explore Toys Hill, undertaking woodland tasks, pathway maintenance and habitat management.

Come and explore this special part of Kent, situated on some of the highest points of the Greensand Ridge. With sweeping views across the Weald and beyond, its easy to see why this area is loved by everyone who visits. As part of your holiday you will assist our friendly rangers at properties including Toys Hill to undertake woodland tasks, footpath maintenance and habitat management.

About the accommodation

Nestled in a secluded valley deep within the Kent Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and close to a Grade II listed oast house and former piggery. The bunkhouse is a converted farm building which has two bunk-bedded dormitories. There is storage for clothes under the bottom bunks. There are separate male and female toilets, and the building is centrally heated. The old courtyard provides the garden area which is grassed and has a fire site with barbecue and two picnic benches.
