Responsible Water Consumption

As the world faces growing concerns about water scarcity and environmental sustainability, responsible water consumption has become a crucial aspect of modern travel and hospitality. Westward Living Holiday Cottages is one of the leading self-catering holiday cottages complexes in the South West. The business acknowledges its role in preserving the region's natural resources and has implemented a range of measures to encourage guests to reduce water consumption during their stay. By adopting these practices, guests can contribute to the conservation of water and the protection of North Devon's unique ecosystem.


Westward Living Holiday Cottages is one of the leading self-catering holiday cottages complexes in the South West, we have implemented rainwater harvesting systems to collect and store rainwater for non-potable uses such as landscape irrigation and cleaning. This sustainable practice reduces the demand on municipal water supplies and contributes to water conservation efforts. Guests can appreciate this eco-friendly feature and understand how rainwater harvesting positively impacts the environment.


Responsible water consumption is a shared responsibility that extends beyond the boundaries of individual homes. At Westward Living Holiday Cottages in North Devon, guests are provided with the information and tools necessary to reduce their water consumption during their stay. By adopting mindful water usage practices, utilizing efficient fixtures, participating in conservation initiatives, and supporting sustainable landscaping, guests can play a significant role in preserving North Devon's water resources for future generations. Through these collective efforts, the holiday cottages and their guests contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally conscious travel experience.
