At Go North Wales we’re committed to celebrating the beautiful landscapes, vibrant communities and local businesses that make North Wales so special. We share this passion with holidaycottages.co.uk who have a track record of supporting charities and communities from across the region, and whose guests love to holiday in North Wales. 

That’s why we’ve partnered with holidaycottages.co.uk to launch the Community Fund Initiative; inviting community organisations and local charities that benefit North Wales to apply for one of three £1,000 funds to support their important, ongoing efforts. 

Our new partnership with one of the UK’s biggest holiday cottages providers is a special one thanks to the values we share in supporting the local communities, natural environment, and economy of North Wales. Read on to learn more about holidaycottages.co.uk’s ongoing community support in the area, and how you can apply for the Community Fund Initiative.  

holidaycottages.co.uk’s commitment to regional communities 

To match their growing portfolio of over 14,000 holiday cottages across the UK and Ireland, holidaycottages.co.uk’s commitment to supporting the communities where their guests love to holiday is also on the rise. From sponsoring local charities and businesses to promoting environmental initiatives, they’re committed to leaving a positive impact through responsible tourism. 

“As a business, we know we have a responsibility to be more sustainable, both in the way we do business and in the way we help guests enjoy the beauty of the UK. We’re committed to continuing to try and do better wherever we can, focusing on reducing any negative social and environmental impact wherever possible.” – Jayne McClure, Travel Chapter CEO

Between Go North Wales and holidaycottages.co.uk, we look forward to hearing all about the important work that charities and local organisations are doing across North Wales and invite you to apply today.

holidaycottages.co.uk’s sustainable tourism in North Wales

Although our partnership is a new one, this is by no means the start of holidaycottages.co.uk’s impact in North Wales. Over the last few years, the holiday home provider has offered fantastic support to local charities and groups that continue to create a lasting impact. 

Since forging a partnership in 2023, holidaycottages.co.uk have offered important support and funding for the Aberglaslyn Mountain Rescue Team who provide invaluable search and rescue services across the peaks and coasts of North West Wales. 

Their funding contributed to a new batch of digital radios for the rescue team, resulting in drastic improvements in communications during emergency responses, and the ability to collaborate with other emergency services during an operation. 

holidaycottage.co.uk have also offered important support to Trash Free Trails, a non-profit organisation whose mission it is to protect the trails and wild spaces across the region, and in turn, reconnect locals with nature through litter picking. 

As part of their support, holidaycottages.co.uk sponsored Trash Free Trails’ youth engagement programme – Trash Mob Academy. Their sponsorship supports a 6-week school programme in North Wales that inspires young students to connect with nature and encourages positive environmental attitudes through outdoor activities like bike riding and litter picking.
