and are taking simple and effective measures to become more environmentally friendly.



 Energy efficient light bulbs are used where possible.

Some lighting is on timers to be more efficient.

Our Boiler has recently been updated to a Grade A efficient boiler and is operated by a room stat.

Appliances in the room are not left on standby when not in use.



 We recycle all that we can which includes the content of guest room bins.

We also make our own compost for the garden.



 We have some toilets fitted with a double flush mechanism to reduce water

Usage and water saving devices in others or have them set on the minimum setting in the cistern.
