Wherever we go and whatever we do, we have some impact on the environment. By making positive choices during your visit, you can help us to look after Cornwall, ensuring that it retains its character for your next visit.
You can help us by refusing packaging and bags you don’t need and using the complimentary jute bag we provide in each property. Please use the recycling banks you’ll find at the supermarket and if you are offered a recycling system in your chosen property, please use it. Help us to keep Cornwall a super holiday destination, free from litter and environmental damage.
Walking, cycling and riding are great ways to see the area without adding to traffic. Use public transport if you need to travel to your start point, but try exploring near to where you are staying – there are some fantastic places to see right on your doorstep…take a look at our Things to do in Cornwall for ideas.
Support local producers and services – and you’ll see what Cornwall can offer, and benefit local communities. Visit farmers markets, farm shops, village stores, pubs and cafes. Our distinctive culture shines through the hundreds of community events that happen throughout the year – and the food and drink is simply fantastic.
You can see the stars at night in Cornwall! Help us reduce light pollution, energy use and CO2 emissions by switching off lights and all those standby buttons when you don’t need them. Help us reduce water consumption by using just the water you need; and then sit back and enjoy that view.
Help us to look after the landscape and wildlife by following the Countryside Code; take litter away; use footpaths and cycle-ways responsibly; keep dogs under close control; and consider other people and users when visiting the countryside. Enjoy!
