Green tourism Gold Award

Received confirmation today that we have achieved a Gold Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme. 
'Caldertop Cottage maintains its Gold award with excellent sustainable practises across the board which have allowed the site to also win a number of other green awards. The green message is very prominent for guests and there is a huge amount of information to allow them to make not only green choices but also choices that will enhance their holiday experience such as local produce, car free activities and the wildlife likely to be seen on the site and surrounds. Wildlife is encouraged on site through various habitats and refuges.'

Lapwings return

There are several lapwings on our land again - I love to hear their unmistakeable call when they are in flight!
