Gold Award for Green Tourism

Earlier this year, here at East Cambusmoon Holiday Cottages, we successfully retained our Gold Award from Green Tourism UK, their highest assessment standard. There are 60 rigorous criteria used to assess businesses in this international award scheme and Steve and I perused, studied and fretted over all of them!

No greenwash permitted, the organisation and their assessors really know their stuff. We have always aimed for the highest environmental and sustainable standards for the cottages and we are chuffed to bits to have received the Gold Award (we managed to secure a score of over 90%!) Categories for assessment include energy and water management, transport and travel, nature and culture. Since our assessment we have installed electric vehicle charging points so continuing our endeavours and offering even more to guests.

Our guests are always assured that high standards of year round comfort are one of the benefits of staying here, sustainable design and ongoing, positively green management of this special place adds to everyone's enjoyment of their time here. The children who stayed last week loved feeding the hens and trying suss out which of our pregnant ewes are carrying twins. Once hens, sheep and children had all gone to bed the adults spent the evenings chilling out in front of the wood burning stove. Lots of sunny days at the moment, which is great for our on site solar production, but cool evenings make for great sunsets and the opportunity to enjoy warmth and relaxation in front of a real fire.
