Much as we would love to reduce our carbon footprint even more, there are limits on what we can do within this building, which was originally constructed in 1740.

We are also aware that we are a hotel, where our guests expect certain facilities that in your own home might not be appropriate; for example replacing towels every day is what is expected, even though it may not be that environmentally friendly!

Howevern we have developed the following sustainability practices:

Recycling: we now recycle all of our commercial waste, including food, with none now being sent to landfill.
Cooking oil: this is collected from us and recycled.
Cleaning materials: we no longer use bleach.
Lighting: we have an on-going programme of replacing all lamps with LEDs.
