Forget Springwatch and get closer to the countryside with a ‘green’ camping holiday this summer. Woodovis Park (www.woodovis.com ) in Devon has notched up further eco credentials by digging an on-site 180 foot borehole. A David Bellamy Conservation Award is also in the pipeline, further recognition of the independently-run holiday park’s commitment to preserving and enhancing the natural world.
Woodovis Park also holds a Dartmoor First Award in recognition of its commitment to sustaining Dartmoor and its special qualities. The first assessment for the David Bellamy Conservation Award took place last week, with the grading to be announced in August. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a designated World Heritage Site, five-star Woodovis Park offers the ideal low carbon family holiday in a beautiful setting.
With the park’s very own borehole under way, Woodovis is digging deep to provide guests with a sustainable holiday option. A raft of measures already in place to reduce the impact on the environment include: • Energy efficiency – Where possible, light bulbs in holiday homes and outside lights are all low energy bulbs, with timers or light sensors on all outside lights. In the facilities block thermostatically controlled heating has been installed as well as Dyson Airblade hand dryers, which use 80% less energy.
