Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Electric bike cycling vacation in Devon

Environment

Energy: Our farm has won numerous awards for sustainable tourism. We've cut our energy use by over 75% compared to the previous owner, and our wind turbine and solar panels generate enough power to run the business. Even on a windless cloudy day you'll be staying green, with a 100% renewable grid tariff.

Wildlife: Your stay helps finance our long term conservation aim, which is to make all our acres as good for wildlife as our 7-acre site of special scientific interest, Popehouse Moor. This is the core of our philosophy, the bottom line, the one thing against which we measure our success. It gives us a subtly different starting point to most tourism businesses. Put bluntly, we're using tourism to make our wildlife-focused land management financially sustainable, rather than using our greening actions to make our tourism venture successful. And of course you, as our guests, are an essential part of that. Thank you!

Community

Local Community and Culture: This vacation is based around exploring the North Devon UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Initially focusing on the fabulous dune system at Braunton Burrows, the reserve was later extended to encompass the whole of the Taw and Torridge River catchments in recognition that the entire system, from watershed to seashore, is inter-dependent. We've designed this itinerary to take you through the landscape from moorland stream to seashore at a pace where you can appreciate the changing scenery and soak up the local culture in this rural corner of England.

Friends and neighbours: When the journey is part of the fun there's time to stop at local shops and pubs - we'll give you the local tips. And when you spend money locally most of it stays local. But it's not just about going out. We can help you self cater with food from a local grocer, with meat from a neighbouring farm shop, and drinks from the local independent wine and beer merchant.
