About West Lakes countryside management

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

Assist the rangers with a variety of landscape and ecologically enhancing works. You could be carrying out a variety of tasks, including: dry-stone walling, fencing, footpath restoration and scrub removal. We will take you on a guided walk to illustrate how your work today will directly help to maintain our upland heritage (walls), landscape and ecology for the future. Project selection may vary depending on local priorities at the time or the weather! A reasonable level of fitness, a willingness to learn and a sense of humour is all that is required – we will supply the rest. 

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

A standard kit list can be found on our Essential Information page.
