A Mindful Holiday
A MINDFUL HOLIDAY
For that special place where you can relax and unwind, Resipole is well positioned to enjoy the peace, the silence and the stunning views of the West Highlands. Located on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, on the shores of the recently designated Marine Protected Area Loch Sunart, our comfortable accommodation and facilities will ease away the stresses of modern living.
Take a walk through the ancient Sunart Oakwoods which have been designated as a Special Area of Conservation. This is one of the few areas where the Ancient Caledonian Oak Forest still remains.
Climb the hills out to the summit of Ben Resipole to enjoy the spectacular views out to the Isle of Skye, the Inner and Outer Hebrides and over to Ben Nevis.
Having discovered the beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsula you will again be enthralled by the wonderful views from this spacious and level touring park and self-catering accommodation.
Professor David Bellamy has named Resipole Farm Holiday Park in West Highlands as one of the UK’s greenest holiday spots - and awarded it a special accolade for protecting and enhancing the natural world. Set in 5 hectares of bordering the remnants of the Atlantic rainforests on the shores of Loch Sunart, Resipole Farm Holiday Park provides luxury holiday homes for hire, and also has facilities for touring caravans and tents. Over the past 40 years, the Sinclair family have planted hundreds of indigenous trees on the park and surrounding hillsides, creating a natural haven for deer, red squirrels, badgers and other wildlife.
This superbly located park is also a focus for many rare bird species, and is known to be a breeding ground for the threatened Chequered Skipper butterfly. The efforts of the Sinclair family have now won them a David Bellamy Conservation Award, described by Professor Bellamy as the ‘Green Olympics’ for holiday parks. David Bellamy said he was 'absolutely amazed' when he discovered just how much was being done by holiday parks to protect and enhance the environment. 'Many parks like this have created wildlife wonderlands, and I think it’s time they were given deserved recognition for their big commitment,' said Professor Bellamy.
This Award was made following a detailed audit of the park’s environmental policies, supported by comments made by holidaymakers. The future plans for Resipole Farm Holiday Park include the establishment of managed public access to the Oakwood’s and wildlife hides which will be directly accessible from the park. The park is a member of the British Holiday & Home Parks Association, the park industry’s official body, which is assisting Professor Bellamy with the Conservation Awards project.
