Duchy Holiday Cottages Support The Prince's Countryside Fund

Duchy of Cornwall Holiday Cottages is supporting a pilot scheme launched by The Prince of Wales to encourage tourists to support the work of The Prince's Countryside Fund. Upon check-out, guests at the luxury holiday cottages will be asked if they would like to make a small donation to the charity, which helps hard pressed rural areas in Britain. The two-year pilot scheme also has the support of other major tourism businesses across the UK, including the British Beer and Pub Association and The Caravan Club. Money raised will be used to help fund projects including apprenticeships for budding hill farmers, training for young people to gain employment in the rural economy, community transport schemes in isolated rural areas and projects supporting community assets such as pubs, posts offices and village shops.
