Unused toast or food scraps are used for chickenfeed.

Cold tea and coffee is used for watering plants.

Packaging is recycled.

Contents of bins are separated and recycled.

Magazines provided in the guestrooms are recycled to various charities.

Daily checklists are in place and routines followed to reduce electricity and water and ensure safety and awareness throughout bedrooms and public areas.

Our buildings are double glazed and insulated.

We use low energy light bulbs where possible.

Our toilets have dual flush mechanisms therefor reducing water consumption.

We ask our guest to help us with our environmental goals regarding towel and linen usage.

We ask them to be aware of electricity usage and switch off lights when not occupying their room.

All our staff are local.
