Here at HRU, we have a range of wildlife for you to see! We are committed to protecting and preserving the environment as want to work towards a sustainable future by minimising the impact the resort has.
If you have a passion for wildlife and are interested in reducing your carbon footprint and the impact you are having on the environment then HRU is the place for you.
Experiencing the wildlife
We try to make the resort as wildlife friendly as possible and because of this, there are some very exciting birds, animal and insects to witness.
You have the chance to get extra close to wildlife at our fishing lakes. The lakes are great for the keen fisher. With coves for the fish to hide in, you will have an exciting day at our lakes, stocked full of tench, roach, bream and carp.
If you do not fancy fishing then you can still take advantage of the lakes by taking a stroll around or relaxing with a picnic at the lakeside. While you are there, see if you can spot any wildlife. Just a few things you can expect to see include ladybirds, butterflies, ducks and geese, owls and water voles.
Our golf course has also been known to be home to some exciting creatures such as hares, kestrels and the occasional visit from a buzzard!
We are holders of the David Bellamy Gold Award, which is awarded to holiday parks who show concern for the environment. Local nature groups and holidaymakers look at all aspects of the running of the resort from the protection of wildlife to efficiency of energy saving and recycling.
The Green Tourism Business Scheme awards businesses who have shown to care for the local environment and community. In 2008, we received the bronze award and then went on to secure the Silver in 2010. We were also highly commended in the sustainable tourism category at the Bristol, Bath and Somerset Tourism Awards, in October 2016.
