About Ranger for a weekendGain a hands-on insight into the world of a Cliveden Ranger.
Cliveden’s Ranger team look after 300 acres of woodland, mile upon mile of paths and our banks of the River Thames. With almost half a million visitors every year, there’s always plenty to do. Join our team for the weekend to help with seasonal conservation and maintenance projects. There will also be a guided walk on the Sunday afternoon, when one of our Rangers will give you an insight into the management of the estate. Sturdy footwear, comfortable, weather-proof clothing and a readiness to get physically active in our “green gym” are a must!
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.
