About Habitat monitoring and management

Have a go at habitat monitoring and practical habitat management.

Helping the Arlington rangers monitor different habitats for target species. After the monitoring stage we could move on to practical habitat management such as bracken crushing or bramble reduction and also involve building bird/bat dormouse boxes and installing them throughout the estate.

About the accommodation

A stone-built barn that was converted in the 1970s and is situated on the Watersmeet Estate on the North Devon coast. The bunkhouse provides a warm and comfy place to relax after a hard day’s work. There are two dormitories, a leader’s room and bathroom upstairs plus an additional bathroom downstairs. There is a pleasant garden with picnic benches and a barbecue. If you want to venture a little further, there is a delightful country pub a short walk away. The views of the coast and surrounding countryside are dramatic and spectacular.

Notes for guests

Please bring work/walking boots, waterproofs and thick gloves.
