About West Lakes forestry

Join our foresters for a variety of woodland work.

Come and join the foresters and help them conserve the wonderful woodlands in the Western Lake District . Over the week you will be ‘beating up’ some of our recently planted fell-side woods with stunning views across the Wasdale and Eskdale valleys. There will also be some coppicing work along with invasive-species control. You will also get the chance to learn how to make some charcoal in our kiln and take some away with you for your summer BBQs.

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
