Supporting Sustainable Travel and Tourism

Travel and tourism is a large arena, and one that has a significant effect
Pritchard Leisure five-star experiences

Travel and tourism is a large arena, and one that has a significant effect on the environment and local communities. With issues around sustainability and the environment becoming ever more important, businesses in travel and tourism need to prioritise sustainability and environmental protection. The planet, its people, and the obligations businesses have, are the three key areas of focus, and that is something we take seriously at Madryn Castle. As well as aiming to provide the best experiences and affordable luxury products and services for our customers, we are also dedicated to environmental stewardship and community support.


Why is sustainable tourism important?

Tourism can be a double-edged sword, bringing both benefits and disadvantages to an area, depending on how it is managed. For example, it can be a driver for local economic growth through the opportunities of high-quality jobs, business opportunities, and creating funding for conservation. However, if tourism is not managed effectively, it can have a damaging effect on local communities and the environment, causing negative impacts on local people. This often also results in the collapse of tourism in the area.

Sustainable tourism aims to look after the environmental and social impact of its presence, and to do this tourism businesses need plans in place to ensure they deliver the experience their customers expect, yet also benefit local people and the environment.

Madryn Castle is committed to sustainable tourism

The team here at Madryn Castle passionately care about the environment, local communities and the heritage of the area. Not only do we make sure our park is well maintained, but we nurture our surroundings by managing the beautiful woodland walks that provide a habitat for diverse plants, insects and animals.

Madryn Castle itself has been lovingly restored, helping to conserve this unique piece of Welsh heritage for generations to come.

We are also committed to providing opportunities for local people, and those who work for us have ongoing training and development. This includes internships, so that people can grow their career in tourism, which is a key economic pillar of the area.

Using local businesses not only helps support the socio-economic part of responsible travel and tourism, but it lessens the impact on the environment too. This is especially true when sourcing products and services we use in and around the park, keeping milage low and reducing our overall carbon footprint.

One of the biggest issues with holiday parks is waste and energy conservation. In the industry, holiday parks had a reputation of using too many single-use plastics, as well as producing a large amount of general waste. Combine this with unsustainable practices, and it was clear that new measures and initiatives were needed. At Madryn Castle, we are committed to reducing waste in all areas, as well as educating both staff and guests on the importance of conserving resources, recycling, and disposing of waste in accordance with environmental initiatives.

The team at Madyrn Castle would like to say thanks to our customers with their ongoing support as we continue to manage and improve our response to sustainable tourism, and we look forward to further protecting and enhancing our local environment, our place, and its people.

Our holiday led to us buying a home here. Stayed at Pritchard Lodge. 
Had nice weather, great chalet, great site. We bought our own while we were here. It is that good!

Our Paradise.
We bought a caravan with a plan of a couple of years, 20+ we are still here! As we drive into the park all stresses of life lift and we are in a tranquil paradise. We could not imagine life without our holiday home and all our wonderful memories with family and friends. All thanks to a professional friendly team who provide the warmest of welcomes and make our time spent here precious.

Sharon and Steve

Surrounded by dark starry skies and tranquil natural beauty. With perfectly maintained individual plots and a friendly team. Madryn Castle really is our happy place.

Sara and Pete

Our holiday home at Madryn Castle is our ‘perfect escape’, as soon as we arrive, we know we will relax and unwind in the peaceful, beautiful surroundings. We enjoy exploring the local area and have easy access to beaches and amenities to either side of the Peninsula. Our plot is unique, developed individually and private. Staff are friendly, helpful and professional. We just love being here making happy memories with family and friends, some of whom have also bought on the holiday park following their stay with us!
