The David Bellamy Award for Conservation
We are very proud to have been awarded the David Bellamy Gold Award for conservation every year since the scheme began in 1997. We have also been awarded a David Bellamy Conservation Award of Special Distinction.
World-famous conservationist Professor David Bellamy believes that holiday parks are not just great places to stay; they are also making a significant contribution to the natural world by providing expert management of the countryside and the environment.
To win a David Bellamy Conservation Award parks must demonstrate their commitments across a wide range of environmental considerations. As well as helping to protect the flora and fauna they must have positive policies on concerns such as waste management, recycling, landscaping – and even light pollution.
Prospective award parks are assessed by individuals from organisations such as local wildlife trusts or from the countryside department of the local county council. In some cases the assessors are freelance environmental consultants. The awards can be made at Gold, Silver or Bronze levels.
Staying on a David Bellamy Conservation Award park can add an exciting new dimension of discovery to your holiday. It can help guests of all ages focus on exploring, understanding and appreciating the precious natural world around us.
In addition to the assessments carried out by the environmental experts, guests are welcome to send Professor David Bellamy their observations of conservation in action during their stay. If you would like to submit any comments whilst you are staying with us at Tyddyn Isaf please use the David Bellamy postcards which are available in the main building or in the information centre.

David Bellamy Conservation Award of Special Distinction
David Bellamy Award assessors are also asked to nominate parks for a 'Special Distinction Award'. These awards are for particularly innovative projects and initiatives that parks have put in place. They are designed to highlight new thinking and ideas that others can learn from.
Tyddyn Isaf Camping and Caravan Park was nominated for this award in recognition of the work that we have done to plant in excess of 40,000 native trees and shrubs, thereby creating an extensive network of hedges and providing an important wildlife corridor.
After careful consideration David Bellamy awarded us The Special Distinction Award for Conservation.
“Your environmental work is truly innovative and something of which you can rightly be proud”.
