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.

Environment
Our Farm house next door to The Weaving Workshop is our home, office and work place. Combining all three allows us to minimise the negative impacts our operations may have on the local environment.

Susie and David grow flax from seed in their orchard which they harvest and process for Susie to hand spin into linen.

South Devon has a wonderful coastal environment. Torbay has sheltered waters, beaches and rocky coves. The coastline is a UNESCO Global Geo park and home to the sea grass beds which are the breeding grounds of our native species of seahorse.

If you are interested in wildlife the Dart Estuary between Totnes and Dartmouth is the place. Seals, Cormorants, Little Egrets, Kingfishers, Herons and a wide variety of seabirds are often seen if you kayak amongst the reed beds and remote side creeks.

The South Hams coastline is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has a rugged coastline, sea caves, headlands and exposed cliffs for the more adventurous. No doubt we will spot seals and if we are lucky we may see Porpoise, sunfish and dolphins and in recent years humpbacked whales have summered along this coastline.

The Impacts of this Trip

We are very keen to provide guests with information about local markets, traditional artisans and restaurants and shops with locally sourced produce as well as information about local projects with environmental and social benefits to the area.

Our local town, Totnes is the original transition town based on which transition initiatives have been started in locations all around the world.

Set in a 15th Century Orchard next door to our Farm House, guests stay with us in The Weaving Workshop which we have been recently renovated.

Susie is a weaver specialising in linen. From seed to cloth, we grow flax in our orchard which we harvest and process for Susie to spin into linen before weaving it into linen artwork and cushions.

David is a British Canoeing qualified Sea Kayak Leader and Sea Kayak coach and Susie has many years experience Sea kayaking around the South Devon Coastline and river estuaries. David and Susie love nothing better than helping people discover the fabulous coastline, river estuaries and natural world here in their South Devon back yard.
