About Navigation and conservation

Join our rangers for work on the fells and the beautiful Wasdale Valley.

Fancy learning basic navigation skills from the rangers in the western Lake District fells? Come and spend the week with us in the amazing Wasdale valley, home of England’s highest mountain, deepest lake and the wonderfully wooded Nether Wasdale property. You will be helping out the rangers with a variety of practical tasks which may include dry-stone walling, fencing, footpath repair, gate hanging along with scrub and woodland management. During the week you’ll have a chance to get the map and compass out and try out your new skills.

About the accommodation

The accommodation is spread over two floors consisting of a lounge/dining area with a log burner, a small kitchen and two areas consisting of five rooms. Outside you are 70 yards from the shore of Wastwater and there is plenty of outdoor and informal garden space. There is access to our boathouse and rowing boat less than a mile away. 

Notes for guests
