    The Plassey Leisure Park

    Five Star Rating

    By ayeupducks: We have just returned home after 4 nights at the nicest site we stay at. This immaculately maintained and spotlessly clean site is situated in acres and acres of wonderful countryside offering the highest standards. The facilities on offer cater for young families and the retired alike who simply want that relaxing break or longer holiday. This time we stayed on one of their fully serviced pitches backing on to the Plassey Golf Course which allowed my husband to play a couple of rounds whilst I watched from the comfort of our caravan after which we met up for a drink at their club house. Plenty to do on site including their adjoining craft centre complex and garden centre, loads of local walks, on-site restaurant and coffee shop and a new reception and visitor information centre. This is a very impressive site and we can fully understand why they have won so many top awards and it offers great value for money. Finally thank you to all their staff who made us feel very welcome and could not have been more helpful and pleasant. See you again soon Kath and Derek Roberts

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."
