Two Camping and Caravanning Club Sites also achieved Gold Rosettes:

Bakewell and

Speyside 

The parks that take part in the David Bellamy Awards scheme are all regularly assessed by a team of local wildlife experts. They look at the way the sites manage their land as a haven for wildlife, reduce their use of energy, water and other resources, reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce and support their local communities.

David Bellamy, who is also Club President, uses the assessors’ reports (and any comments received from members of the public) to make his award choices each year. Three levels of excellence can be achieved: Gold, Silver and Bronze.

Bob Hill, the Club’s Sites Director, said: “As a Club, we are dedicated to providing greener holidays and we hope our Camping in the Forest and Club Sites’ achievements demonstrate this.

“We hope our awards continue to inspire holidaymakers to enjoy an inexpensive break in some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside.”

The David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme is one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK and is a joint partnership between the Conservation Foundation and the British Holiday & Homes Parks Association.
