Our holidays are centred on the great landscapes of Britain – so we think it’s important we help look after them, as well as doing our bit for the environment in general.
We’re longstanding members of Nurture Lakeland, a charity established to forge links between tourism and conservation in Cumbria. Nurture Lakeland promotes sustainable tourism with Cumbria and funds a whole variety of projects, such as Fix the Fells, which maintains and improves paths throughout the Lakes.
All of us walk or cycle to work each day, and we’re doing our best to minimise energy consumption in the office. Our shredded paper’s composted and our waste paper is recycled.
Sustainable tourism is also about supporting the local businesses, to help sustain the communities you’re visiting. Nearly all our accommodation is small scale, and independently owned and run, meaning the profits stay in the local community, provide local employment, and help sustain the rural economy. We have many B&Bs on farms, where they help provide a diversified income which supports upland farming.
We plan our routes to be accessible by public transport wherever possible, and provide detailed information on getting there & back by bus & train. We recommend public transport as the most efficient and environmentally friendly method to get to and from your holiday.
