At Treloy Touring Park we strive to make as little impact on the environment as possible. Over the past 15 years we have carefully balanced the development of our campsite with a focus on retention and improvement of natural habitats to avoid overdevelopment and improve customer experience.
We’ve installed a borehole which supplies excellent quality fresh water and provides 85% of the site’s requirements. This facility reduces the burden on local water services. Water is a precious source, and we encourage everyone to use it sparingly. The water is very good quality and a pleasure to drink, so there is need to buy expensive bottled water. We sell a selection of reusable water bottles in our shop.
New for summer 2021, we built ultra-modern amenity buildings, with sensor taps, concussion showers, water-saving devices and designed to have plenty of natural ventilation and daylight. These initiatives have resulted in a reduction in water consumption by 13% per person. We also invested in 3 brand new energy efficient washing machines and tumble driers for the new laundrette which will have contributed to these figures.
We encourage guests to reconnect with nature during their stay, from surfing on local blue flag beaches to spotting nature in our dedicated Nature Reserve area where we are creating a wildlife pond and viewing area and use it to help educate visitors on local wildlife and conservation. It will incorporate a pond dipping area for young children to build awareness of the link between water and life from a young age. The habitat will attract more dragonflies, fish, frogs, birds to our dedicated Nature Reserve. To help facilitate this guest awareness, we plan to issue a wildlife spotting guide to every family, printed on the reverse of the site map which they’re provided upon arrival.
