GTBS Gold Award

The Green Tourist Business Scheme is the leading sustainable tourism certification scheme in the UK, the largest to operate globally and currently the only green accreditation scheme recognised by Visit Britain.

In August 2014, we are absolutely delighted to be nominated for the GTBS Goldstar Award again. These awards honour businesses that have done the most to promote sustainability, by implementing cost-saving practices that help the environment, improve customer servce and help save the business money.

In December 2013, we are delighted to receive our GTBS Gold Award again.

In June 2011 we received the Goldstar award and the Best Carbon Footprint award recognising Dolbeare Park as one of the greenest businesses in the UK and Ireland!

In June 2010 we were absolutely delighted to be awarded for the second time the prestigous Green Tourist Business Scheme Gold level.

Dolbeare Park was the first touring park in Cornwall to achieve the GTBS Gold level - holiday park/campsite list. From 2008 to 2010 we were the only park in SW England to achieve both Visit Britain 5 stars and GTBS Gold. In June 2010 only one other touring park has achieved this status.

Our June 2010 assessment saw our score rise to 90% and the auditors report included: "Recycling is very clearly labelled, great information is provided in the visitor centre and there are some great efforts being made to encourage local wildlife".

The 2008 auditors report included: "Dolbeare Park achieves a Gold award due to the commitment of the owners and excellent sustainable measures implemented throughout the site. Areas to be commended include waste minimisation and composting in particular, thoughtful incorporation of energy and water saving measures in the toilet block and provision of environmentally friendly and local produce in the shop."
