About Wet, wild and walling

Learn the art of stone-faced hedge banking and try your hand at three water-based activities.

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 a vital habitat for many wildflowers, as well as a home for voles, reptiles, insects and birds. Slotted into the week are three separate sessions experiencing the water around the North Devon coast. The three activities will be: a two-hour session of wild swimming, a two-hour session of sea kayaking and a two-hour session of coasteering. Participants will need to be competent swimmers. 

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

Please bring old trainers for your coasteering session.

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