Our family house on Exmoor is surrounded by our 140 acre 'ancient' broadleaf woodland, run as a nature reserve, and with an Iron age hill fort in the middle. The project is to simply and sustainably to look after it.
Entretien / Bricolage
Immersed in the countryside and nature, they can learn basic, centuries old woodland management skills and crafts and see how landscape and countryside are shaped by history and history shapes landscape and countryside, as well as grapple with contemporary issues such as industrialisation, mechanization, disease control, public access and landscape value.
Basic woodland management work, eg: logging, firewood, controlling invasive species like beech and bracken, path and building (a barn and shed) maintenance. It's very remote so would suit couples or two friends rather than people travelling alone. Also if you have your own transport is an advantage, but not essential.
We have a 2 bedroom self-contained annexe that we regularly let for holiday accommodation, fully equiped with kitchen, bathroom, downstairs WC and wifi, tv and hi-fi etc. But all meals can be taken with us next-door.
We have 2 miles of riverbank for fishing or swimming; the beaches at Minehead, Porlock and the North Devon coast are half an hour away, There are local riding stables and excellent moorland walks. We are 3 miles from the local town where the busses go to Taunton. The nearest Railway Station is Tiverton Parkway.
