About Walling, wildlife and coasteering

Learn the art of stone-faced hedgebanking and try an adrenaline-fuelled coasteering session.

The North Devon coast boasts dry-stone walls and stone-faced hedge-banks that are over 200 years old and in need of restoration. Learn the art of stone-faced hedge-banking and provide vital habitats for many wildflowers, as well as home for voles, reptiles, insects and birds. On your day off, try your hand at coasteering: don your wetsuit and traverse the rocky cliff as you make your way along the coast at Baggy Point, in partnership with H2Outdoor.

About the accommodation

A stone-built barn that was converted in the 1970s and is situated on the Watersmeet Estate on the North Devon coast. The bunkhouse provides a warm and comfy place to relax after a hard day’s work. There are two dormitories, a leader’s room and bathroom upstairs plus an additional bathroom downstairs. There is a pleasant garden with picnic benches and a barbecue. If you want to venture a little further, there is a delightful country pub a short walk away. The views of the coast and surrounding countryside are dramatic and spectacular. 

Notes for guests

What to bring: A standard kit list can be found on our Essential Information page. 

Please bring old trainers for the coasteering session.
