The David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme is one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK. The parks that take part in the scheme are all regularly assessed by the scheme’s team of local wildlife experts. The assessors look at the steps parks are taking to: Manage their land as a haven for wildlife, Reduce their use of energy, water and other resources, Reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce and how they support their local communities.
Lightwater Tarns Country Park is a "must see" hidden gem, offering luxury lodges and caravans for sale with hot tubs and private fishing. The delightful Lightwater stream, which supports the rare white-clawed crayfish, meanders all around the farm's south-western boundary.
