Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

We use organic (approximately 80%) and/or local food, Fair trade tea/coffee and other supplies, and ecological cleaning materials and washing products. In fact we do all our own laundry using minimal washing liquid (using wash balls) and dry washing out of doors or over the aga!

Energy saving measures include low energy lightbulbs (about 70%), capped outdoor lights and wind-up torches as emergency lighting. We also recycle glass, paper, foil, garden waste, clothing and textiles.

We use a W.E.T system for our sewage (entirely biological through action of plant growth and soil microbes), garden organically and promote wildlife in our garden. We farm sustainably and are committed to benefiting the environment through our involvement in several environmental schemes. We educate the public by holding farm walks and garden open days. Our local workforce (cleaner and gardeners) is paid well above minimum wage.

For our guests, we provide practical suggestions & files of information about green issues. We provide bicycles and give lifts to/from the train station. Here we promote peace and quiet as a desirable way to enjoy the countryside as well as to benefit our guests.

The Impacts of this Trip

We recommend local food in shops, markets and pubs. We provide books and guides to local places of interest and courses. We use local food in our cooking and local workpeople, and recommend local art and craft. We fundraise for local charities such as Herefordshire Nature Trust, by providing refreshments on our walks and other activities. Several art groups use the farm for painting days and a sculpture of apples has been made in the orchards by a local artist.

Reviewed on 10 Apr 2012 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

It was a beautiful setting, away from all distracting technology, right in the middle of the country side. A very warm and welcome environment. Inspiring to enjoy nature.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes it certainly did benefit the local people. Lady who runs the place is local. However since a car is necessary to get there it would not reduce the environmental impact.

9 out of 10.
