Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Although this is a self-drive vacation, we actively encourage low-carbon transport wherever possible. In each destination on this trip, we highly encourage exploring the local area on foot – in Belford in particular, your hosts will be happy to help you come up with a route. Northumberland lends itself perfectly to low-carbon transport – there are 600 square kilometres of forestry and ample walking routes to discover on your day at leisure.

We take the utmost care to choose local business partners who share our values and commitment to sustainable travel and the environment. We build long-term relationships based on mutual trust and a joint commitment to caring for the environment. Each accommodation focuses on utilising local produce and ingredients in their cooking which in turn reduces their environmental impact. Two of the featured activities – the guided walking tour of Hadrian’s Wall and the boat trip to the Farne Islands, have been deliberately chosen to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience using low-carbon methods of transport.

People

For us, true sustainability means promoting and helping to maintain a way of life where the economic benefit from tourism can make a genuine difference. In sparsely-populated Northumberland, we work with local businesses, not large corporate organisations – which helps our visitors to interact with the local community and get as far off the beaten track as possible.

Each of the activities included in this vacation – the Dark Skies Observatory experience, the guided walking tour of Hadrian’s Wall and the boat trip to the Farne Islands – are led by hand-selected local experts to help support the community.

We make a pledge to never send our customers anywhere we haven’t visited ourselves, so we spend extensive time within local communities doing research for our vacation programme. The result is our “Robert’s Recommendations”, which are included in each of our vacation packs, and feature specific tips on places to visit, eat and shop in each local community.
