Harford Bridge and Sustainable Tourism

Harford Bridge Holiday Park has been noted for its conservation features, some of which are listed below: We are also the proud holders of The David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award and we have held this for seven consecutive years.

Ducks are a real feature of this site! Several new runs have been built for them and they are breeding prolifically. Bird seed is sold in the shop (mainly for feeders, but it is likely that the ducks benefit too!) and the profits from this go to the RSPB.
House sparrows are obviously thriving at Harford Bridge - they are breeding in nest boxes and around the buildings.
Harford Bridge is part of a scheme through the Dartmoor Charter for Sustainable Tourism, which aims to encourage all establishments concerned with tourism to pledge to improve their own environment and to promote appreciation of Dartmoor. They were visited by the 'Wealth of Wildlife Project Officer' who drew up species lists and a nature trail for the site.

Harford Bridge has taken a sympathetic and enthusiastic approach to the management of their site, accommodating visitors, wildlife (and ducks!) so colourfully and imaginatively.
What is sustainable Tourism?

Sustainable Tourism is all about finding a harmonious balance between welcoming visitors, working with the tourism industry and communities, whilst at the same time protecting the surrounding environment and all its precious qualities, so that we can continue to enjoy it for years to come.

Dartmoor National Park is renowned for its natural, wild beauty and attracts millions of people every year, therefore it is important to maintain the harmony between the environment and the communities and businesses that benefit from the tourism trade that Dartmoor provides.

Increased awareness of conservation has meant that more and more people seek to protect and enhance all that Dartmoor holds, even to the extent that many holiday-makers choose to stay in well managed environments that are considerate to their surroundings.
