    Ross Park

    Five Star Rating

    By dbake07: This park is with-out any doubt the very best park I have been on in 20yrs, and as such would highly recommend it. This will probibly result in proving harder for us to get suitable dates in the future. The owners have the best facilities with Water Electric and drains on most if not all the pitches. 3 acres of fenched off fields for the dogs to run on. (they said it was great to.

Dolbeare Park, a caravan and camping site in South East Cornwall, was only one of two businesses to win both the Gold Star Award and the Best Carbon Footprint Award in the first Green Tourism Week Awards held in London on Thursday 9 June.

The park, located in Landrake, Cornwall, has been a member of the Green Tourist Business Scheme (GTBS) for the past four years and represents the ten highest GTBS achievers of the last 12 months in terms of innovation, ambassadorship and cost savings.

Dolbeare Park’s sustainable initiatives have included a super-efficient modern amenity block, the introduction of Pitch and Store, so no towing of caravan home, rotating compost bins, rainwater storage, recycling bins and monitoring of energy, water and waste.

Chris Cousens, owner of Dolbeare Park said “We have been working hard to become more efficient and green during the past few years. By constantly measuring and reassessing, we have created a far more sustainable business”.

A total of ten Gold Star Awards were presented to those companies that demonstrated the highest levels of green ambassadorship, innovation and cost savings over the last year. The Best Carbon Footprint Award is given to those companies with the lowest carbon emissions.

GTBS managing director Andrea Nicholas said: "We wanted to highlight the exemplary practices undertaken by members and the cost savings they have made, and to help educate businesses that have not yet made a green commitment."
