Gold Award for our environmental sustainability

We are really pleased to have been awarded the Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold Award again. 

Here’s what they had to say about us:

Outdoor Alternative does well, maintaining , yet strengthening the GOLD award. The site has a number of excellent green measures in place. Many of the potentially bigger impacts are under control through robust monitoring and awareness, combined with good insulation and modern technology – such as slow flow taps and showers and A-rated equipment. Significant renewable energy is also produced from the solar thermal and solar photovoltaic panels, while 100% renewable electricity is bought in from the grid. The new yurt is a nice touch with a low travel footprint (sourced from Anglesey) while the straw bale urinal is green but also a great awareness raising feature.

What is it GTBS?
