Sustainability is intrinsically woven into every aspect of what we do. From the big stuff – like the carbon-neutral heating and hot water system, the extensive gardens with two polytunnels which provide fresh fruit and vegetables for the kitchen throughout the year. To the small stuff, like our locally sourced organic toiletries, the use of empty toilet roll inners for potting seedlings and the wormeries munching through kilos of food waste turning it into compost.
We are proud to be the greenest hotel in Northumberland. Of the 173 hotels across the county, we were the first to install a carbon-neutral heating system and one of only two to hold a Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
We take the responsibility associated with this accolade very seriously and act as green ambassadors to the hospitality industry, as well as the wider business community, offering advice and ideas on how to incorporate sustainability into businesses.
