About Shedding light on the woodland floor

Immerse yourself with a week working in the woods.

Experience the glorious colour of the Slindon Estate in Autumn, whilst helping to manage its pockets of woodland, tucked in the South Downs. At this crisp time of year we will be coppicing for hedging products and for wildlife - including our strong dormice population. Enjoy the feeling of a day in the woods with the smell of wood smoke and return to the bunkhouse to warm up by the log burner.

About the accommodation

Slindon Bunkhouse is a converted stable block on the 1,400-hectare estate at Slindon between Arundel and Chichester. The estate is typical of the South Downs with rolling hills and farmland set against a background of woodland and hedges. In addition to that it has an ancient deer park and various archaeological sites. The bunkhouse has a recently refurbished kitchen and seating area with sofas.
