  • Thermostatic radiator valves are fitted on all radiators
  • Dual flush toilets reduce water consumption
  • ‘A’ rated electrical appliances replace older versions where possible
  • Minimal use of cleaning products containing harmful chemicals including the use of e-cloths and using a vinegar/bicarbonate solution for descaling
  • Purchasing a growing number of recycled products e.g. stationary from recycled paper, refilled printer cartridges
  • Bottles, cans, plastic, cartons and paper are recycled .
  • Inkjet printer cartridges and batteries are recycled
  • All food and green waste is recycled
  • Consider recycling in a variety of different ways, including making donations of bedding and furniture to local charities when new is required, reusing scrap paper to take breakfast orders and make shopping lists.
  • Website provides guests with information about arriving by public transport
  • Website gives guests ‘No Car’ options for things to do during their stay
  • Provide details of local walks, cycle routes and local places of interest
