Trewan Hall Camping gets Gold

 conservation at Trewan Hall Trewan Hall holds a GOLD award by The David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme.

 David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award Parks are assessed on a number of factors, the cultivation of flora and fauna, the creation of habitats designed to encourage a variety of wildlife on to the park, recycling and waste management policies, links with the local community and the use of local materials and craftsmen are also taken into consideration.

In 1961 the estate was acquired in a very dilapidated and run down state. The company was formed with the primary purpose of restoring and enhancing the land and buildings. The nature of the area is strongly agricultural and all development and maintenance is carried out with these criteria in mind.

The original buildings, which have mostly been modified for campers, have been restored in the vernacular style using local materials. New buildings likewise, or sympathetically. Great care is taken to keep the character; for example, we retain our ancient entrances.

Restoration of the land, which includes 14 acres of woodlands and amenity, has been tended with an eye to the agricultural heritage. Plants, shrubs and trees have been selected to be appropriate rather than merely ornamental or decorative. There is little in the way of positive inducements to wildlife but efforts are made not to disturb. We have no owl boxes but many owls.

It will be apparent that the ratio of campers to ‘environmental area’ is very high on this site.

Quote from David Bellamy

It gives me great pleasure to let you know that your park has been awarded a Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award for 2017/18. Let me take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all the hard work you have put in to make your park a real haven for wildlife and to go the extra mile to ensure that it is sustainable and a good neighbour to the local community.

I am delighted that sustainability was your first thought when you planned your new-build work. In addition, well done on everything you have done to help Britain’s bees - I am delighted to say that you are officially a “Honey Bee Friendly” park.
