Responsible tourism

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

Environment
Due to all of the activities and the nature of the work on the farm and the countryside we feel we understand the land and its limits very well. One the key things that we do is educate people about the countryside around them. This is in many different forms. When children come to stay in the yurts we test them on what crops are in the fields around them and teach them to recognise the different things growing. We also show people how to identify trees as we feel that people who understand their surroundings are much more inclined to treat them with respect.

There is a tree dedication service here which does two things, it allows people to have a place marked to commemorate a life but also is slowly creating a viable woodland. We tend very carefully to these trees and will continue to nurture its growth.

We also pump all of our own water onsite which is much more sustainable and better for the local area. The farm is also certified HMS High Level by DEFRA for those who know their farming certifications.

With regards to the local wildlife we encourage it where we can and there are some red kites and plenty of rabbits and badgers for those keen on the local mammals.

The Impacts of this Trip

We are very keen on recommending all of the numerous things to do locally. In fact we take this so seriously that we are having a Countryside Fair on the farm this year (15th April) where we have everything from fishing lessons, archery, falconry demonstrations to pony rides for the children all of which we can offer visitors. This is an event that really shows the variety of activities that can be done in the South Downs.

Beyond this there are several lovely walking loops directly in our backyard and most have a good local pub at the end of them. For example one of our favourites is the Beacon Hill loop which is about ten miles long. For those after something a bit more leisurely there are also great walks to the villages of East and West Meon where the Thomas Lord and the George pubs both serve local ales and really try to promote locally sourced food too.

On top of this we have the fly fishing and cycle trail parts of the business both of which promote traveling round the local area in a sustainable way and really enjoying the area without a windscreen between you and the Downs!
