Energy efficient holidays with Haven

Making our homes draughtproof, warm and cosy is very important to that sense of being safely tucked away, insulated from the elements and focussing on family as autumn gives way to winter and seasonal festivities. But what if you don’t want to celebrate the season at home? Energy efficient holidays are a great boost in the dark winter months. Haven has a great range of options, with built-in energy efficiency (and to top it off they’ve featured the Ecoflap on their blog post on the best eco-friendly products for your home).

Haven offers glamping holidays at a a wide range of coastal locations such as Perran Sands and Burnham-on-Sea. Haven’s choice of tents, yurts and domes are equipped with beds, electricity and A-rated cookers and fridges. Glamping is a great way to combine comfort and access to the great outdoors with something just a little bit different.

Haven’s Sustainability Team is working hard to make all its locations energy efficient, seeing a carbon footprint reductions from 102,000 tonnes to 77,000 tonnes over the last six years. Year-on-year energy use continues to go down. 75,000 lights have been switched to LED and, significantly, the caravan fleet has seen better insulation.

Award-winning conservation work

As well as working hard to provide energy efficient holidays, Haven takes its conservation duties very seriously. Its parks are situated on some of our most stunning coastal spots including SSSIs and Special Areas of Conservation, and include nature reserves. Haven has won 35 David Bellamy Conservation Awards, works with the Wildlife Trust and participates in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

So if you like getting away from it all and celebrating Britain’s more bracing months in a coastal location, or you’re looking for somewhere different for a Christmas get-together or break, why not consider Haven? You can enjoy your holiday happy in the knowledge that you’re supporting a company that understands the importance of continuing energy efficiency improvements across its operations without compromising on comfort or service.
