As a company, we recognise that our operation has an impact on the environment and are committed to improving our performance through a number of policies and practices in order to ensure environmental, economic and societal sustainability.

In return for our commitment we ask you, our visitors, to also do your bit for the environment by following these five steps to being a sustainable visitor.
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
  • Get out of the car!
  • Stay Local, Eat Local, Buy Local, See Local
  • Turn off

RECENT IMPROVEMENTS

We actively support the local environment, economic and social communities. By investing in the hotels and constantly improving facilities on a regular basis, we ensure that wasteful and non-efficient facilities are either repaired or removed and replaced with efficient and waste / energy minimising models. Over the last few years we have been pro-actively monitoring and reducing our energy consumption within the hotel. We have invested a large amount of money purchasing efficient equipment and training our staff to use them resourcefully.

CARBON OFFSETTING

It has become clear that all of us need to make our best effort to reduce our dangerous carbon emissions created from day to day life. However, it is equally clear that it is not going to be possible for any resident in the UK to completely eliminate their personal carbon footprint – this is where carbon offsetting comes in.

Carbon offsetting works by helping both individuals and businesses to assess their carbon footprint, then invest in projects around the world that save the emissions of, or absorb, an equivalent amount of CO2. Through this process, they balance out their unavoidable carbon emissions and become CarbonZero.

Visit co2balance to see how you can reduce and offset your carbon emissions ethically and credibly. Visit the co2balance website.
