As some of our campers were aware, during the 2015 season we had been putting evidence together ready for an assessment visit by Green Tourism to give us a benchmark of where we stood. The visit took place towards the end of the season and we are absolutely delighted to have been awarded a GOLD award.
For this to come in only our second season is even more rewarding and gives us confidence to usb on with other measures in the coming seasons. In addition to the Gold rating the calculations also confirmed us as a Carbon Negative site which is another great achievement and reinforces the decisions to be off grid for power and sewage along with all of the smaller measures implemented on site.
We will be implementing further measures over the coming seasons along with taking on board some additional recommendations within the report.
Green Tourism Statement:
Bloomfield Camping have done very well to gain the GOLD award with Green Tourism programme. There are a wide range of green and sustainable practices on site from solar panels, a composting toilet and a vast range of tree planting. Green cleaning products are provided for guests alongside recycling points and LED lighting within the office and shower block. The abundance of wildlife on this site is exceptional, ponds to orchards, kingfishers to dragonflies. Some identification books are available on site with the idea to expand on such tools for the 2016 season. The site is off grid from solar and LPG. All of the above and more have lead to this well deserved Gold award.
