Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve

Description

The Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve, managed by the Dorset Wildlife Trust, is the longest established Voluntary Marine Nature Reserve (VMNR) in the UK. Because VMNR status does not offer any extra legal protection to the wildlife of the area, visitors and users are encouraged to contribute to safeguarding the site for future generations by treating the wildlife and the environment with respect. The reserve was established in 1978, in recognition of the high nature conservation value of the area and the suitability of the site - Kimmeridge Bay in particular, for marine education. The Fine Foundation Marine Centre, with interactive displays and aquaria, provides a fascinating and vital source of information, encouraging all ages to explore the bay.

An unusual double low tide allows extra time for exploring the more interesting ledges and pools along the lower edges of the shore and the best low tides (spring tides) always occur in the early to mid-afternoon - ideal for most visitors. Divers have known about the rich sublittoral habitats around Purbeck for many years and Kimmeridge is a favourite launching point for dive-boats. The many wrecks in the area are well visited, but natural reefs and seaweed gardens are also popular.

Brixton Windmill

Description

Brixton Windmill was built in 1816 and is now the last survivor of the twelve working windmills in Lambeth. The mill, which is owned by Lambeth Council, is situated in Windmill Gardens, off Blenheim Gardens in SW2.

In 2002 the windmill was placed on English Heritage’s Buildings at Risk register. In 2003 a determined local residents’ group, the Friends of Windmill Gardens, was set up with the objective of restoring the mill for future generations.

Restoration began in October 2010 and took seven months to complete. The windmill has been completely overhauled, and specialist architects and contractors were employed to undertake much of this work. The provender mill is now powered by electricity and is used for milling demonstrations. In November 2012 the sails turned for the first time following its restoration.

The gardens around the mill will continue to play host to a children’s playground, and the Friends have recently planted a herb garden and will be growing barley and wheat to be ground in the mill.

Brixton Windmill is open to the public throughout the summer for special events and tours as well as visits from schools.

Community and education activities for children and adults will be at the heart of Brixton Windmill’s heritage education programme.

Lambeth Council’s and the Friends of Windmill Gardens’ vision is for Brixton Windmill to be valued as a community heritage and cultural asset that will be maintained for generations to come.

Mazzard Farm Holiday Cottages

Description

Seven miles from sleepy Sidmouth, at the foot of East Hill, are 17 acres of old apple farm. Among tipis, hens, farmhouse, gardens, play areas and a big communal courtyard with picnic tables are six cottages, which sleep between 2 and 10 (24 in total). Pure heaven for all the family. It's pampering too, thanks to owner Jacqueline's treatments: Indian head massages, Japanese facials and reflexology.

Quarenden Cottage, the former apple store, is the largest in the row, beautifully cared for inside and out. You get sweeping oak floors and a huge leather sofa, fashionable florals and a wood-burning stove, atmospheric lighting and courtyard views. Bathrooms have fabulous fittings and delicious local soaps, the open-plan kitchen is a cook's delight and the bedrooms fit under the eaves. The owners – keen greenies, foodies too – live in the farmhouse and Jacqueline makes marmalade, lemon curd, apple juice and fruit crumbles in season; there's also meat from the farm next door.

Choose from their great list of attractions: the Donkey Sanctuary, Crealy Adventure Park, the Jurassic Coast Hopper, or sign up to an onsite cookery or photography course.

The Nut Plat Retreat

Description

The Nut Plat Retreat is a holiday home from home for those who relish the idea of sleeping in the Great British Countryside in 'Ransoms', our bijou and boutique Living Van.

Set in the beautiful Kent Countryside, the accommodation is a 1904 living van kitted out to satisfy all your needs for a luxury weekend (or longer!) break.

We've tried to supply you with everything we think you'll need for a peaceful rural retreat. The only neighbours you'll have here are our pet lambs.

There is a full size double bed in the van, a fold down table and chairs and games and a pack of cards to keep you entertained in the evening.

Kent is known as the Garden of England for good reason and The Nut Plat in Roughway is a historic ‘orchard’ of ancient cob nut trees. Running alongside the River Bourne in the Garden of England, the Nut Plat is on the edge of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We think the hamlet of Roughway is unique – less than an hour from the centre of London and yet you can hardly hear a car let alone a train and you rarely ever hear an aeroplane (unless it’s using the open sky for acrobatics).

The Manor House Stables

Description

The restoration of this 18th-century, Grade II-listed stable block has been achieved using all natural, earth-friendly materials, local builders and traditional methods. There are two units of quality self-catering accommodation which can be rented separately or together. Both units have exposed beams, lime-washed walls and wood-burning stoves. The first floor 'Hayloft' (sleeps four) is relaxing and welcoming with a spacious open plan living/kitchen whilst the ground floor 'Bothy' (sleeps three) is warm and cosy with direct access to a small private garden. Special care has been made to make 'The Bothy' as wheelchair-friendly as possible.

The stable walls are insulated with cotton, hemp or wood fibre and below the ground floor lies layers of insulating limecrete and recycled glass. Natural and environmentally-friendly paints and wood finishes have been used throughout the building and the hot water, underfloor heating and cast iron radiators are fuelled by a wood pellet boiler and solar panels. Natural materials have been used everywhere. Real wood floors are covered with braided wool rugs and recycled cotton mats. Fabrics are soft and natural and colours are warm and earthy. The luxury mattresses are made of organic Welsh wool, the sheets are cotton (mostly organic) and the beds covered in linen bedspreads or cotton quilts. Silk curtains hang in the Bothy bedroom and wood shutters keep the light out of the Hayloft.

Qbic London City Hotel

Description

Qbic is an urban hospitality experience that refuses to bow down to urban hospitality convention. A new type of hotel defined as much by playful convenience as by a lightness of style. An urban refuge for the open-minded traveller who believes clean rooms and comfortable beds are no longer unique selling points, but basic human rights. Because an urban hotel should embrace the energy and lightness that surround it not keep them at bay. It shouldn’t try to mimic home, but deliver an exhilarating local experience that isn’t at all like home.

The battle for lower and lower prices has turned hotel rooms into an expendable commodity. They are just places to lay your head. To survive and thrive, we have to add new values to the equation. Up the ante with something entirely new and exciting. We believe the competitive advantage lies in cultivating relationships with our guests – relationships that go beyond just us being hotelier. Adding value through enthusiasm, affection and local knowledge. By being otherworldly attentive to their needs and cultivating local expertise through knowledge and collaboration with local heroes.

There are enough places to just your head, Qbic wants to be the place people come back continually to hand their hat and have a good time.

Hide Cottage

Description

Set right on the riverside, with stunning views out over the river, marsh and grazing, Hide Cottage is a quiet getaway on the Norfolk Broads. Located in the 3000-acre Upper Thurne Nature Reserve (SSSI) it is ideal for bird and wildlife watching, boating, fishing or just relaxing away from it all.

Hide Cottage is accessible only by boat or a short 400-yard walk, which ensures a truly peaceful break in one of the most delightful and historic spots on the Norfolk Broads and benefits from being above the ancient Potter Heigham bridge, which keeps 95% of the river traffic at bay, leaving you just the traditional broads sailing cruisers and the occasional fisherman.

We take our eco credentials very seriously at Hide Cottage and offer much more than just warm words. Solar panels, a wood burner, organic and Fairtrade bed linen, natural cleaning products, an organic and local food hamper and an electric boat are just some of the ways in which we are trying to reduce the impact of your stay with us.

The cottage sleeps five in two rooms and is perfect for Autumn and Winter holidays, as well as summer sailing or walking breaks.

Description

Escape to a Shepherd's Hut - explore, relax, unwind.

The Accommodation
The Shepherd's hut, settled on top of the slope, gives you far reaching views across the valley. Inside, the hut has electricity (supplied by photo voltaic panels) and lights - along with a double deluxe mattress for a perfect night's sleep. It is well insulated and has a wood burning stove for all year round toastiness.

For cooking, settle into the slow lane and stroll down to the kitchen garden to gather ingredients. Create your culinary delights in the outdoor kitchen using gas hob & grill. Or cast yourself back into a simpler age and cook around the fire.

The Area
East Radnorshire has the highest density of bridleways & legal green lanes in Britain. Here you can travel across miles of open hill, moorland & single tracks with the buzzards & red kites soaring above. There are also lots of popular market towns to discover in the area - Presteigne, Ludlow, Hay-on-Wye to name a few...

Pick up from train or bus stations can be arranged with good notice. Nearest shops are a short walk across a few fields so a holiday without a car is easy.

Django's Hostel

Description

Django’s is the first ecohostel in the first ecovillage in Ireland, offering the finest modern budget hostel accommodation in the Midlands. Open to all, the hostel has 11 private rooms and dorms, all are en-suite, and as well as offering accommodation for tourists it offers facilities for those attending the many courses, conferences and small events being run and facilitated by a variety of organisations both in the ecovillage and in Cloughjordan village itself.

We subscribe to the ethos of our ecovillage and encourage visitors to be more aware of their impact on our planet and the local environment.

Low energy consumption, conservation of water and management of waste considerations are all incorporated in the design, construction and management of the building. We also work closely with local businesses wherever possible to keep our local economy thriving and we encourage our visitors to do the same.

So if you are a tourist or someone wishing to experience the beautiful midlands maybe walking or cycling or if you feel that you have the necessary qualifications, and would be interested in facilitating or running a course in your discipline in the ecovillage, we’d love to hear from. Just call us.

Out of love for nature, we have selected natural materials for the furnishings, such as: parquet flooring in the rooms; linen and cotton fabrics, traditional handwork created in the town of Anghiari in Tuscany,
Italy.

Out of respect for the environment, the cleaning products we use are biodegradable and the electric power to light the rooms is ecological.

Out of love for the animals, our breakfast buffet is not only made with organic produce, but it is also purely vegetarian and vegan.

Also the forests of the Spessart nature parks that are in the immediate vicinity invite you to vacation and relax.

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa

Description

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa - luxury resort experience providing a seamless integration of environment, culture and modern design. Situated on a private island, 55km north of the Equator in one of the largest and deepest atolls in the world, North Huvadhoo.

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is truly striking and is the only resort in the Maldives certified for both design and construction by EarthCheck - the next generation of environmental certification and benchmarking.

Featuring only 50 villas, on land and over water, these impressive spaces are designed with the utmost comfort and luxury in mind, whether nestled within the island’s tropical foliage, only steps from the ocean, or elevated above the water. All villas feature a minimalist style, floor-to-ceiling windows and every comfort you would expect, while Park Pool Villas have the added luxury of a plunge pool.

Dining experiences are available at the resort's two restaurants - "The Dining Room" and "The Island Grill" offering international and regionally inspired dishes in sophisticated yet casual settings. Meanwhile, the contemporary poolside bar and the unique Dhoni are great places to sit back, unwind and enjoy a refreshing drink. For special occasions there are a variety of private dining experiences, including Nature, Lagoon, Starlight and Maldivian, each showcasing a unique aspect of the Island. In-villa dining is available at any time.

A variety of activities allow guests to make the most of the natural surroundings. Our 5 star PADI Dive and Activity Centre will create experiences to suit any guest. Diving and snorkeling around the island’s magnificent private reef is a must while local island visits, dolphin spotting, sunset cruises and the one of a kind "Cross the Equator" trip will offer ever lasting memories. If it is wellness you seek then The Vidhun Spa with 5 private villas, 80 foot tranquility pool and jacuzzi is perfect for individual or couples’ treatments. Private or shared yoga sessions with our resort instructor complete the wellness concept of the Spa.

Pego Ferreiro

Description

An off grid smallholding in the Parque Natural de Serra de Sao Mamede, Portugal. There are three types of accommodation from a River Lodge for two, an old goat milking parlour sleeping up to four, and the Boar Hide - a wooden hut in the woods next to the river where the wild boar congregate during the summer. We are remote and a bit on the wild side. Access is by foot for a minimum of 300mts over ancient stone paths. A reasonable level of fitness is required. We offer peace and privacy.

As well as the mill there are several other buildings on the land including another mill with two dwellings (still ruins) and an old goat milking parlour half way up a hill. We have also added two other dwellings for you to take a breather from the hectic world out there.

We have kept the place completely off grid. No mains power, no mains water and we deal with our own waste. We work organically and with a respect of the land, landscape and its history.

We bought the place in 2005 just before that big dark cloud fell over Europe. To help punch a hole of hope into this mess we have three slightly different types of accommodation for you to regain a sense of balance (you'll need it on the paths). We have tarted up the Goat House, built a glampy kind of lodge overlooking the river and a wooden hide for wild boar watching. Each venue is completely private (you could spend a week here without seeing us or any other guests) and allows space for reflection, deep thought and free beer. (Actually we charge for the beer).

Mas Vinyoles

Description

Mas Vinyoles is a Catalan countryside house that is partly converted to offer a pleasant space to you to spend your holidays. We have two comfortable apartments fully equipped (central heating, dishwasher, washing machine), one for four, the other for six people. There is a garden with a swimming pool and a barbecue, a biological vegetable garden and an orchard.

Mas Vinyoles is situated in the heart of the protected area Les Gavarres, a series of lovely hills covered with Mediterranean forest that go from Girona to the Costa Brava. The next village is 7 km away; a small asphalted road leads from it to the house.

This is a place to spend some quiet days of rest, exploring the surroundings by foot or on bicycle. The beach is a 30 min drive away, you can hire horses (4 km) or discover the cultural offer (monuments, museums, theatre, etc).

Gecko Villa

Description

Gecko Villa is a large, rural house with a private salt-water swimming pool, offering holidays amongst the rice paddies of Northeast Thailand. Stays include freshly prepared Thai meals throughout your vacation at no additional cost.

Explore the heart of rural Thailand from this private holiday villa, off the beaten track and away from the tourist meccas. A local host family will be delighted to introduce you to the local ways of life and to integrate you into the community, or to leave you to enjoy the privacy of the villa to the full.

The property was established as a sustainable travel initiative in a traditionally agricultural region, from which families have historically migrated to the main industrial centres of the country. It was constructed by local villagers who also operate the property, and who retain 100% of all revenues. The villa employs only local villagers and a majority of women, harvests rainwater, grows its own organic produce, uses salt-water chlorination, promotes recycling and is involved in reforestation and ecology preservation projects.

Be different and make a diference: stay at Gecko Villa during your trip to Thailand.

Bikecation Limited

Description

Bikecation started as a conversation between Jamie Paterson and Rob Penn about the simple pleasures of a bike ride, something we know well and want to share.

Rob Penn’s first bike was a purple Raleigh Tomahawk. His elder, taller brother rode a Chopper. It was an issue: in many ways, it still is. He has ridden a bicycle most days of his adult life, in over 40 countries on five continents. He gave up a job as a City lawyer in his late 20's to cycle round the world. His bestselling book, It’s All About the Bike: the Pursuit of Happiness on Two Wheels has been translated into nine languages. It was made into a BBC documentary, Ride of My Life.

Jamie first nudged the speedo past the magical 40mph aged 11, in 1978, on the hill between Horsmonden and Lamberhurst, Kent, on his Raleigh Hustler. A businessman, he has over two decades of experience running businesses in the UK and USA. A passionate sportsman and marathon runner, he got back on a bike in his early 40s. Jamie is now making up for lost two-wheel time.

At Bikecation, we provide cycling holidays that revel in the rhythm of two spinning wheels; holidays that capture the fun and freedom of cycling as kids; holidays that celebrate the fellowship of pedalling with friends and family; holidays that give you a thirst for adventure and an appetite for great food; holidays that make time stand still.

We provide holidays that move you.

“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.” – Ernest Hemingway.

Rainbow Tours

Description

Pioneers of responsible travel, a passionate, well-travelled team, inspirational in-country partners and expert guides set Rainbow Tours apart. We know that you are looking for the experience of a lifetime and it’s a responsibility we take very seriously. From iconic to far-flung, we plan every trip with real care and insight, looking after the smaller details as well as the bigger picture.

Rainbow Tours specialises in tailor-made holidays to Africa, Madagascar and Latin America arranging safaris, custom-made trips for couples, family holidays, honeymoons and expert-led groups, as well as relaxing beach breaks.

Whether you want to live like a local in Buenos Aries, sample characterful reds on the Maipo Wine Route or feel the hairs on the back of your neck tingle when you catch your first glimpse of Machu Picchu or the gorillas in Uganda, we can help you experience each destination in a remarkable way. Or we can take you even further afield to discover incredible hidden gems like São Tomé and Principe, the Timket festival in Ethiopia or the national parks of Madagascar.

One of our top tips for travellers: Do your best to travel as long as possible: longer trips, less often will give you a much better experience and appreciation of the country, and it’s also good for the environment.

Bere Marsh Farm

Description

If you want peace and quiet on a small organic farm, with beautiful views, birdsong and a river to sit by or fish in, then come and spend a few days and nights in our meadows and woodlands.

Ham Down meadow, Stour Hanging and Ham Down Copse cover around 8 acres and tents can be pitched on the field or in the woods. These fields form part of our 80 acre Soil Association registered organic farm. Since 1971, this farm has been a conservation and farming project; all mammals, birds, butterflies, bats and plants have been recorded and encouraged.

The North Dorset Trailway runs alongside the farm on the track of the Somerset and Dorset Railway line, closed in the 1960s. We allow a maximum of 5 tents per night, assuring everyone of plenty of space and we are keeping things as simple as possible.

There is a long-drop loo in a secluded corner of the field and a tap for fresh water near the meadow. We have 4 designated firepit areas for campfires and bbq's and wood as well as Dorset charcoal can be bought at the farm.

Moat Vale Camping & Caravan Site

Description

We welcome you to a simple wee touring caravan park and camping site near Carlisle and Gretna Green. The caravan site only takes a maximum of 5 units, so is always relatively peaceful and quiet. Being a fairly basic wee campsite you can’t expect luxury but we do a have a well kept WC, washroom and hot shower as well as a washing up shed and BBQ area. Have a look at the caravan park photos on the “About Us” page on our website.

The campsite is set in the wooded landscape of Netherby Estate, part of the Debatable Lands of the Scottish Borders. You’ll find the campsite surroundings much quieter than the congested central Lake District, yet with plenty to explore. The area is covered in artefacts of its turbulent past with many tower houses and castles to visit and the Border Esk and River Liddle provide excellent fishing opportunities. Gretna Green and historic Carlisle are also close by.

The caravan park lies approximately 9 miles off the M6 / M74, and 3 miles off the A7, do come and visit as a convenient overnight stop over or for a longer sojourn in the borders.

South Penquite Farm

Description

South Penquite is a two hundred acre family organic beef and sheep farm situated in the heart of Cornwall - high on Bodmin Moor between the villages of Blisland and St Breward.

We are a demonstration farm for both the Soil Association and the Westcountry Rivers Trust, and as well as offering camping & yurts we have facilities for field studies and opportunities for educational groups and schools to learn about local environment.

There is much to see on the farm which became fully organic in 2001. Since then we have continued to adopt an environmentally sensitive approach including solar heated hot water and rainwater harvesting for the campsite showers, and more recently a wind turbine and thirty solar PV panels on a barn roof.

As well as running the cows and sheep, the farm is exceptionally rich in archaeological remains and wildlife. We also have many horses, ponies, chickens, geese, ducks and of course our faithful working collies without whose help we could not run the farm.

Farm 215 Nature Retreat & Fynbos Reserve

Description

Farm 215 -nature retreat & fynbos reserve is a sustainable destination in the Uilkraal Valley between Stanford and Cape Agulhas in the Western Cape’s unspoiled Southern Overberg, a 2 hour drive from Cape Town International Airport.

Far removed from the daily grind of life, farm 215 is a private, intimate and secluded retreat where you can enjoy spacious accommodation, tranquillity, an overpowering sense of space and the unique nature of the Cape Floral Kingdom, the richest floral biome in the world. The reserve is a Protected Area and a sanctuary for hundreds of rare, endemic and common fynbos plants of the threatened Cape Floral Kingdom, known for its weird and wonderful shapes and flowers.

Farm 215 has been set up and is managed as a "with two feet on the ground" sustainable operation. We place the integrity of the natural ecosystem around us in the first place and aim to keep the footprint of both ourselves and our guests as low as possible.

The African Horse Company has its base station on farm 215, which is also the first reforestation site of the Trees for Tourism program of the South African Forest Trust and home to the SEC-Skills Exchange Co-operative, focusing on early childhood development programs.

Leave No Trace Ireland

Description

Leave No Trace Ireland is a network of organisations and individuals with an interest in promoting the responsible recreational use of the outdoors. As increasing numbers of people seek the beauty and exhilaration of outdoor recreation, our collective mark on the environment and its natural processes, increases. Litter, disturbance to vegetation, water pollution, wildlife, livestock and other people are all indicators of the need to develop a national ethic that protects both natural and cultural heritage. Techniques designed to minimise the social and environmental impacts to these areas are incorporated into the Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics Education Programme as seven Principles.

Leave No Trace Ireland promotes and inspires responsible outdoor recreation through education, research and partnerships. The programme strives to build awareness, appreciation and respect for Ireland's natural and cultural heritage and is dedicated to creating a nationally recognised and accepted outdoor ethic that promotes personal responsibility.

It encourages all outdoor enthusiasts (e.g. walkers, mountain bikers, canoeists, orienteerers, horse riders) to do their part to maintain those lands used by the public for the benefit of the environment and for future generations.

Green Hospitality Programme

Description

The Green Hospitality Programme is the only Irish-developed environmental certification standard for the hospitality sector. The Green Hospitality Eco-label and Awards are recognised both nationally and internationally as standards that allow members achieve good environmental performance and allow visitors to choose "Greener" hospitality businesses knowing that defined criteria are being implemented and monitored.

Our members and award winners have set themselves the target to reduce their environmental footprint where possible. Members aim to reduce carbon emissions by reducing energy consumption, preserve scarce water resources and minimise waste production.

Members are encouraged to protect and promote local biodiversity, buy locally where possible and encourage visitors to use local "green" businesses and services. Visitors are encouraged to adopt a responsible approach to the environment without reducing the quality or enjoyment of their visit.

Members employees are encouraged and trained to implement and practice good stewardship within the business and our members publish annual plans and set targets to reduce the waste of scarce resources.

This is a voluntary programme that aims to develop leadership and best practice within the hospitality sector.

Tourism Concern

Description

Campaigns on human rights issues connected to travel and for more ethical and fairly traded tourism. Tourism Concern is not against tourism, but just wants it to be as good for the people in Southern (Third World) holiday destinations as it is for Western tourists.

It has proven time and time again that our holidays can often bring unwanted consequences and can accentuate poverty in poorer tourism receiving areas. With its Southern partners it recognises that although tourism can be an industry which improves people's living standards and wellbeing, it is only too often something that works to keep them impoverished. The work for change is crucial as Tourism Concern is the only organisation in the UK campaigning solely on these issues.
