As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetSea Kayaking is the lowest impact way of exploring the coastline and river estuaries of south Devon. We only take out small groups on our Sea kayaking trips to minimise the impact we have on the beaches, covers and side estuaries we visit.
We aim to contribute to the preservation of the natural environments we visit by viewing nature in its natural habitat without disturbing, displacing or damaging it and even more importantly our aim is to leave the beaches, coves and other marine environments we visit in a better condition than when we arrived. We do this by encouraging our visitors to collect and taking away at least one piece (or more) of plastic pollution every time we land.
Our Farm house 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.
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 as we paddle or drift along with the tide in 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.
PeopleWe 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.
5 miles from our Farm House, our local town Totnes, is the original transition town based on which transition initiatives have been started in locations all around the world.
We only employ local, experienced Sea kayaking guides with knowledge of the local coast and river estuaries.
Set in a 15th Century Orchard, guests stay with us in our Weaving Workshop cabin which 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. For any guests that are interested we are more than happy to show them around the process.
