Congratulations to Top of the Woods for winning the Green Key award!

November 25, 2016

A Pembrokeshire campsite that has gone the extra mile to improve its local environment has been celebrated in the Tidy Wales national awards ceremony.

Top of the Woods Camping and Glamping in Boncath was presented the Green Key Award at the 25th annual Tidy Wales Awards.
The Green Key Award is a brand-new category launched this year to reward businesses working to improve sustainability in the tourism industry and was sponsored by us. We’re happy to be supporting Keep Wales Tidy as we’re all about being green and promoting sustainability at Wybone!

A little about Top of the Woods…

Top of the Woods care passionately about sustainability and always promote green activities to their guests. The team has also worked hard to help their local envrionment by planting trees, improving access to the local Ffynnone Woodland, and managing wildflower meadows.
The great staff from Top of the Woods were presented the Green Key award by our very own Carly Cooper and rugby champion Tom Shanklin at the awards ceremony in Cardiff Bay on Monday 21 November.

Soo Hammond from Top of the Woods spoke at the event:

“At Top of the Woods we are passionate about being sustainable, enriching and unique. We want our camping guests to be happy and be inspired by nature.

For all of us to enjoy the benefits of nature, we need to protect and increase local biodiversity, flourishing for future generations. We also share with our guests and celebrate the fantastic local skills, quality artisan products and local businesses that are aligned with our values, so our guests can experience the beauty and vibrancy of Pembrokeshire. Winning this award is amazing for us as it underlines that what we are doing is valued, but the work doesn’t stop here! This is a lifetime journey for all of us, with plenty still to do”
