Back of Beyond Touring, Camping & Glamping Park Sustainability Policy

Energy efficiency
Where possible, we encourage guests to be as energy efficient as possible so we can all help reduce climate change.
The roof above the shop/reception is fitted with solar panels.

Our amenities blocks have motions sensors and will come on when customers visit them and go off after 10 minutes if there is no movement.

Bins are provided beside our information hut and amenities block 2. Please split your waste into general waste and recycling.

Only environmentally-friendly green waste can be placed in our elsen points.

EV charging points
We have two electric vehicle charging points available for our guests. To use either charging point, please scan the QR code which will take you to the payment app.

Please use water responsibly.

During times of drought, we encourage guests to place their grey waste on our hedgerows to help water our plants and trees.
Water butts can be found around Monty’s Bar/reception. We use this water to help water our planters.

Public transport
Buses are available from the end of East Moors Lane that connect to Ringwood, our nearest town.
Our nearest railway station is Bournemouth.

Walking and cycling
We encourage our guests to make the most of our beautiful surroundings. From our park, you can walk or cycle to Moors Valley Country Park and Hurn Forest. Please ask at Reception and we can give you a map to show you the route.

It is also possible to cycle to the New Forest National Park. Bike hire is available locally in both Burley and Brockenhurst.

New Forest Cycling Tours can also arrange exclusive tours from our park to Moors Valley and/or the New Forest National Park.

Working with local suppliers
Where possible, we try to work with local suppliers.

Our shop is stocked with locally-sourced beers, wines and spirits as well as locally-made teas, biscuits and other treats.

At Monty’s Bar, you can also try local beers, ales and ciders plus wines from a wine merchant based in Ringwood.

Reducing single use plastic
All water stations throughout our park have fresh drinking water for customers. Please re-use containers to fill and help us to reduce our single use plastic.

The area around Emma’s Glade and our wildlife lakes is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and as such, we do not permit dogs into this area in order to best protect the wildlife.

Areas of our park are kept purposely uncut in order to promote habitats for insects and pollinators.

We also sow wildflower seeds in dedicated areas of the park.

Where possible, we plant native saplings and trees in the park to compliment the screening and privacy.
