Our Green Concept is at the heart of all we do
We make it easy to minimize the impact of your yurt holiday on the environment whilst offering comfortable quality accommodation
The Isle of Wight is a beautiful place to come for a holiday. It has its own micro climate and is often warmer than the rest of England and is always high in the sunshine stakes. It makes a great climate for camping holidays and is very popular with those seeking a great outdoor holiday. We love camping, and holidaying under canvas in a Yurt is a wonderful summer experience, especially for families with children or just for a romantic break. Since we discovered the beauty of sleeping in a yurt in 2006, we have developed our concept of comfortable camping holidays in creamy canvas yurts, and, believing in responsible travel, we have worked hard to design ethical, family friendly holidays that are really environmentally friendly.
We are very proud to have won the Green Business Award in the IoW Chamber of Commerce Business Awards for Excellence 2009.
In planning our sustainable, yurt holidays we wanted to be really green whilst still offering comfort and convenience. Some self catering and camping holidays offer one aspect of helping the environment, often recycling, but we have found few that are really green throughout. We want to provide relaxing and comfortable camping holidays that make the minimum impact on the environment.
We have a range of green holiday options available on site including wood burning stoves, barbeques and braziers, which have a zero carbon footprint as we use wood from sustainable woodland, but which may be less familiar and take a little longer than our Calor gas cookers which are convenient but less environmentally friendly. Guests are free to use either option. We also provide compost toilets and solar shower.
We have carried out extensive research to find the greenest options in all areas of our holidays, whilst still maintaining choice, comfort and quality. We reduce, recycle and re-use everything that we can, and make it easy for our guests to do the same. We aim to constantly re-evaluate what we do so that we strive to become even greener year by year.
We make it easy to leave the car at home with green transport options and a free pick up service from the local Isle of Wight ferry terminal in Yarmouth.
We use local produce and suppliers for everything we can, support local businesses wherever possible and buy our new equipment and furnishings from companies with good green credentials.
Our yurt holidays not only provide a comfortable base from which to explore the beauty and attractions of the Isle of Wight, but also provide an outdoor living experience that may change people’s approach to their own lifestyle. Guests also have the peace of mind of knowing that their green camping holiday is adding little to the effects of global warming.
