If you’re toying with the idea of trying ‘wild camping’ in the new year – but you’d still like to have some creature comforts available if you need them – I reckon you’d love a bit of Digs in the Wig.
This eco-friendly, luxury campsite is set in 25 acres of ancient Welsh woodland, and it’s all within easy reach of stunning beaches and national parks.
Nothing beats spending a day outdoors, picking out the perfect gourd from the pumpkin patch – it’s a great way to get closer to nature and connect with where food comes from whilst supporting local farmers and family-run businesses.
It’s not very often that I actually feel a little sad to leave a place that I’ve spent less than 24 hours in, but it was with a heavier-than-expected heart that we packed up the car and drove away from La Fosse. Owners Mark and Emmanuelle have created such a cosy, comfortable retreat in this idyllic part of the English countryside, it’s impossible not to be charmed by everything it has to offer.
By now, most of us know that we should be trying to fly less. Travelling by aeroplane accounts for 2% of total global greenhouse gas emissions, and those 39.4 million annual flights pump out toxic nitrogen oxide, cancer-causing exhaust particulates and carbon dioxide; the latter of which absorbs heat and re-emits it back to earth.
But for most people – with beloved friends and family often spread across the globe – completely quitting on flying is unlikely to be an option. So what can we do to reduce the impact of our aviation travel?
