About Wildflower meadows management

Join the Ranger and Gardens Teams looking after our wildflower meadows.

Help us to enhance not only the views and gardens but the wildlife too in Cragside’s amazing fantasy landscape. Each autumn we cut the wildflower meadows and rake them to balance the soil nutrients and release the seeds for the following year.  There are lakes, huge trees, miles of footaths and incredible rock features to enjoy during your stay.  A BBQ and bonfire will be part of the fun!

Bedding: No bedding/linen provided.
