Cartwheel Environmental Commitment

Background.

The environment has always been central to our business - the peace, tranquillity and beauty of the countryside is what attracts people to the idea of a rural holiday in the South West and needs to be preserved for the future of our business as well as for the future of our planet.

Cartwheel has therefore always encouraged farm and country tourism operators to adopt good environmental practices and to make the most of their location and natural assets by, for example, attracting and protecting wildlife, creating farm trails for the enjoyment of their visitors and by sourcing and providing good local food that supports the rural economy and delights guests.

Cartwheel's Green Tourism Visitor Charter provides information on how to be a 'greener' visitor together with information and links about walking, cycling, local food and wild life in the South West.
