Reduce energy usage by switching off lights when you go out and closing doors and windows when the heating is on.
Give the car a holiday
Leave the car behind, if only for a day, and walk or cycle instead. Local walking routes and maps are provided.
Use local products – they give a flavour of the area and help support local communities. We’re fortunate to have some fantastic producers of food, drink and arts and crafts in our region. Ask us about local markets or local and regional organic produce.
Reduce, reuse, recycle
Try to avoid overly packaged goods and say no to that extra carrier bag. Recycling bins are provided – please use them.
Be water wise
Please use water wisely. Turn off the taps when brushing teeth and don’t use more towels and robes than necessary.
Help us to look after the landscape and wildlife by not littering, using footpaths and cycle-ways responsibly and guarding against fire. Please let us know if you see any interesting flora and fauna.
Support Green Tourism Businesses
There are hundreds of businesses trying to reduce their environmental impact through the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Businesses are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold for their efforts to be more environmentally responsible.
