Gold Award for Green Tourism awarded to Devon Yurt

Julia Martin holding Silver Tourism Award

We are delighted to announce that Devon Yurt has been awarded a GOLD from Green Tourism – the highest award that we could get ! – This award reflects on our commitment to creating a sustainable  environment both locally and on a global level.   Green Tourism were particularly impressed by our use of local products,  by our replanting scheme and the fact that we grow a lot of our ingredients on the farm which make for zero food miles !   They were also struck by our recycling and reusing of items and that we do our laundry on site using solar energy and natural drying methods.   All of our cleaning products are eco friendly and our paper products are recycled.

Our carbon calculator for the business gave an impressive low score due to our use of green energy and local sourced timber. 

Promotion of car free activities and low carbon days makes for a low impact on our environment.

Our guests can also offset their carbon footprint from their journey to Devon Yurt by planting a tree on site which would have a copper label with their names on it,  to be visited year on year !
