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
Cornwall is beautiful. Its coastline is a natural wonder. In the best of British summer this part of the country attracts many travelers. Individuals, families, groups of friends. During popular weekends in August and September it can be simply overcrowded. This is not how we want to present this, or in fact any other place to our travelers. Therefore, most of our departures to Cornwall starts mid-week. Avoiding crowds is a win-win situation. For our travelers, it’s the beauty of the landscape without too many people running in the background, or a Cornish pasty without queuing. Our dear suppliers are not over-worked trying to cater for crowds, and for us, well, we are able to support many smaller suppliers, like local shops and craftsman during the time when usual tourists are not around.

We’re traveling in a small group. How is that important for Cornwall? As stated above, its beauty is remarkable, and we would like it to stay like that for generations to come. By bringing small groups around, we’re leaving no trace. Taking 8 or 9 travelers (maximum 12) for a walk around Trevose Head or St Agnes, we are making sure our footprint is minimal. In addition, when our small groups are discovering the surroundings, we would never choose to do so in environmentally unfriendly way (read, 4x4 vehicles, quadbikes). Instead, we’ll put the walking boots on and explore the mountains in this non-invasive way. But fear not, even if coastal walking is somehow new to you, we will make sure the trails we’re choosing are accessible, enjoyable and safe.

Waste. Minimising waste is very important. It’s impossible to reduce it to zero of course, but we encourage our clients to think about products they use. We always suggest using reusable water bottles. In all places we visit, finding a drinkable water tap is not a problem. Having reusable bottle on hand helps reducing plastic waste. We advise our clients prior to travel that bringing reusable bottle will make a difference. We also give out reusable bags at the start of each trip. Our travellers use them on everyday basis, whether they go shopping for souvenirs or just carry they everyday essentials; cameras, sun cream, map, etc. That goes further, reusable bag will stay with each traveller and hopefully get used over and over once the adventure is finished.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Travelling with respect – this is the way we do it. As mentioned already, while visiting Cornwall one may expect to see other, perhaps many, tourists. What we cannot forget is that there are local people who go about their everyday life. We do not want to get in their way, but we rather want to get to know them. Therefore, in a small group it is easier, and more respectful to participate in some fun activities. Our Yoga teacher, a local stat, will be with us, and only us for couple of hours. While visiting local bakery, we may have a good chance to hear about the secret behind the perfections of their Cornish pasty. We wouldn’t be able to do it in a group bigger than 12.

The idea for our Cornwall retreat is to stay in one place. This minimize the need to move around generating more carbon emission and gives us a great chance to immerse into local way of life. We’ll shop in best local stores, we’ll stay in family owned hotel ad if we ever need to take a taxi, we’ll call our local, trusted friends. This, in our opinion, is a way to support local communities!
