About Meadow and heathland maintenanceJoin the ranger team looking after our wildflower meadows and restoration work on our heathland.
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 on our wildflower meadows as well as clearing rhododendron from the 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.
