Working with the RSPB to help save nature for future generations

Saving nature together

Throughout 2021, holidaycottages.co.uk was working together with the RSPB to support the revival of natural habitats. Over the course of the year, we helped to raise funds for two important woodland restoration projects for the RSPB. This was achieved by pledging to restore 1 square metre (m2) of British woodland for every booking made with us in 2021 and we have renewed our support for 2022. 

We provided funding for projects at both RSPB Haweswater, Lake District, and RSPB Glenborrodale, western Scotland, encompassing at least 20 hectares in total, through our support of the RSPB. Read our blog to find out more about our fundraising project with the RSPB

It’s essential to preserve the places we love

Our stunning landscapes are what makes the UK such an extraordinary place to stay

Every booking will assist in the planting and seeding of trees and wildflowers as well as measures to allow trees and native plants to thrive again. In fact, the projects holidaycottages.co.uk is funding could help to capture up to 3,000 tonnes of carbon, equivalent to the yearly energy emissions from over 500 average UK homes.*

Projects for 2022

Glenborrodale, Scotland

We have supported the RSPB at Glenborrodale as they work to restore and regenerate rare national habitats such as temperate rainforest. Ensuring these native trees are able to naturally regenerate the woodland is very important for ensuring this important woodland survives for future generations.

Gwenffrwd Dinas, Wales

The woodlands in the RSPB Gwenffrwd Dinas Reserve are a key part of the chain of Western Atlantic Oak Woodlands. Over recent decades, there has been a lack of regeneration due to overgrazing and invasive species. Support here will focus on the improvement of these woodlands such as fencing, regeneration of young trees, and installation of pine marten den boxes.

Franchises Lodge, England

This woodland reserve in the north of the New Forest is home to Cameron’s Cottage, a residential educational facility that provides access to nature for groups of young people. Our support will help the RSPB with their restoration and educational work.

We want to celebrate the importance of the UK’s diverse and spectacular wildlife; book with us in 2022 and together we can help in the revival of these beautiful landscapes and give nature a little something back.

*To calculate this figure, we used the methodology and stats from the Woodland Carbon Code to reach the estimated figure of ‘up to 3000 tonnes of carbon’, and statistics from the Energy Saving Trust to show what this is equivalent to in terms of average UK household energy use.
