About Heathland restoration projectJoin the ranger team working to restore lowland heathland on the estate.
Help us to enhance not only the landscape but the wildlife too in the fantasy landscape created at Cragside by Lord and Lady Armstrong 150 years ago. We will be working to remove unwanted vegetation to restore a large area of heathland. Cragside is a rugged hillside landscape and a reasonable level of fitness is needed to enjoy this holiday to the full.
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.
