About Ranger for a weekendGain a hands-on insight into the world of a Cliveden ranger.
Throughout its 357-year history Cliveden has been a glittering hub of society, hosting exclusive parties and political gatherings. Now, Cliveden cordially welcomes you to spend a weekend helping the ranger team around the estate. With mile upon mile of paths, many acres of woodland and over 400,000 visitors a year, there is always plenty to do and see. This working weekend offers the chance to see behind the scenes at Cliveden and promises to be yet another great social occasion at this site of great historic value.
About the accommodation
This bunkhouse provides rustic, basic accommodation which comprises two restored barns located amongst the woodlands and grassland of the Ashridge Estate. The first building comprises two dormitories each containing five sets of bunk beds. The second building contains the kitchen, lounge, toilets, showers and disabled facilities. The kitchen has been recently refitted and outside there is a lovely seating area. The wild fallow deer are regularly seen on the lawn outside the bunkhouse. There is no mobile signal in the bunkhouse but you should find some with a short walk into the nearby woods.
