Manor Cottages is very happy and proud to be supporting 'The Visitor Giving Scheme' for Cotswolds AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). We offer cottage guests the opportunity to donate £1 when they book their holiday cottage, a donation which we match pound for pound. In the first 18 months we have donated the sum £11,000 which has gone to a variety of projects across the region.
The Charity says: "The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful and cherished landscapes in the country, attracting millions of visitors each year. Whilst the role of the Cotswolds Conservation Board is to look after the landscape and ensure its natural beauty can be enjoyed by future generations, we need as much help and support from our friends as possible. Making a donation through the Cotswolds Visitor Giving scheme via Manor Cottages is one of the easiest and single most important acts you can do for the future of the Cotswolds".
The money raised goes to support projects across the Cotswolds, delivered by the many committed organisations who are working hard to look after the things that make the Cotswolds special. These are projects that manage and restore habitats for wildlife, manage and improve footpaths and bridleways, interpret the area’s special character and look after the area’s distinctive historical heritage.
