Environmental Policy Statement

Longnor Wood Holiday Park is a Peak District campsite committed to promoting sustainable tourism. By minimising our impact on the environment, wildlife and local communities we hope to have a positive impact on our guests, employees, local residents and planet. We contribute to local conservation charities such as the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and are a member of the David Bellamy Pledge for Nature scheme operated by the BH&HPA.

We seek to minimise the environmental impact of our five-star campsite in the following ways:
  • Improve existing wildlife habitats, including bees, butterflies, insects and birds 
  • Minimise our waste and energy consumption wherever possible
  • Minimise light pollution to help our guests enjoy the Peak District dark skies
  • Maintain our facilities and our equipment to the highest of standards
  • Ensure old equipment is always replaced with energy efficient alternatives 
  • Promote the Reduce, Re-use and re-cycle messaging to our guests
  • Remove the use of single use packaging or plastics in our stores and vending machines 
  • Encourage our customers to use our drinking water points 
  • Use eco-friendly materials and cleaning products 
  • Minimise paper by emailing our guests in advance and having hand dryers and not hand towels in our amenity block 
  • Promote sustainable options such as walking or cycling for guests staying with us 
  • Encourage guests to learn more about the natural environment during their stay 
  • Promote the sale of local produce from local businesses in our Peak District campsite shop
  • Promote local businesses and attractions on our website 
  • Partner with local contractors wherever possible to undertake site improvement works 
  • Provide on-site accommodation for the majority of our team who do not have to travel to work
