Holiday Cottages with eco friendly or green credentials

Looking for ideas on how to reduce your carbon footprint whilst on holiday? If you are concerned about your impact on the environment, there are several things you can do to make your holiday that little bit more green. By choosing not to fly, you are already making a difference. Want to travel abroad? Instead of flying, why not take the ferry or go by train to France or Spain? Using public transport is of course an eco friendlier option than taking your car, a great way to minimise your carbon emissions. You could also consider hiring an electric vehicle whilst on holiday. Green initiatives in the Brecon Beacons and the New Forest have encouraged electric car hire within the National Parks. Already own an electric car? Check out our cottages with a charging point for electric vehicles. Camping is probably as environmentally friendly as you can get. But if a total back to basics approach is not for you, check out our glamping holidays page for a more luxurious, yet still green alternative in shepherds huts, a romany wagon, yurts, tipis, and camping pods. Why not choose to stay in an eco friendly holiday cottage or eco-gite? You could opt to stay in an eco-home, a holiday property promising to have high standards of sustainable design. Thinking of staying on a farm? In the UK, look out for properties which are part of the Environmental Stewardship Scheme working to conserve, enhance and promote the countryside. Alternatively you might pick a holiday cottage where conscious effort has been made to adopt a green approach to the business and to operate as sustainably as possible. Accreditation schemes such as the Green Tourism Business Scheme, the Green Key scheme or the Visit England Sustainable Tourism Award are a great way of finding out the green credentials of a holiday property. They indicate that the self catering business is committed to sustainable tourism and has achieved standards of good practice across a range of sustainability criteria. The self catering properties listed below may have been given an award under a validated green accreditation scheme or are buildings that have been certified under an environmental assessment method such as the Code for Sustainable Homes Assessment or the EcoHomes scheme in the UK. Alternatively they might use eco friendly heating or power sources or work to an environmentally friendly strategy. These properties have been listed as such by the owners and any green credentials will be shown on the main advert.
