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

I was particularly pleased to see that you have met your own very high standards yet again and that your gardens and grounds remain 'exceptional'. Well done ... you deserve hearty congratulations for everything you have done.

David Bellamy - 2015

Quote from the Assessor

This is a very well managed family run camp site and it was a pleasure to visit. The site has had a gold award for the past 15 years and very deservedly so - a tremendous amount of attention to detail is evident throughout the park in every area.

Development has taken place in a subtle, environmentally sensitive manner to enhance visitor pleasure alongside remaining commercially competitive ... the grounds and gardens are excellent and reflect the knowledge and skill of a passionate gardener.

The grounds are a real highlight and provide a beautiful setting for visitors.

Areas of particular interest

  • Wild areas including hedgerows and grassland.
  • Management of woodlands including firewood, chipping and the manufacture of charcoal (available in shop for barbeques).
  • Recycling paper, cardboard, plastic, cans and glass.
  • Energy saving light fittings, solar heating, large PV Solar Array and minimal light pollution to enhance the view of the stars.
  • A large bug hotel near the Hall available for our all year round visitors - see below.
