Ecological sustainability

Eco-friendly Hotel. Our aim is to enhance our wonderful hotel whilst taking steps to improve the eco footprint of everything that we do and transform it to an eco-friendly hotel in every angle we can. We have a dream to turn it into the first 100% sustainable hotel in the whole New Forest.

Our commitment

We are working with local companies to minimise our carbon footprint. And, whilst it may be more expensive to have supplies from them, we think it worthwhile when you consider the bigger picture. We believe this is something that our guests will value, appreciate and support as we actively participate towards the bright future of tourism and our local suppliers in the New Forest. We are also consciously supporting greener initiatives to benefit the planet.

eco-friendly products

Bed linen: New Forest Laundry

We work with New Forest Laundry Linen Company, who launder our bed linen. They are a small and locally based company, proactive in the war against single use plastics. They have invested heavily and send our deliveries unwrapped in special bags removing the plastic shrink wrap (formerly favoured) entirely from the linen service.

Toilet paper: Who gives a crap

The “Who gives a crap?” toilet paper supply their paper in boxes, wrapped in paper, so no plastic.  What really makes a difference is their eco policy. They make all of their products with environmentally friendly materials, and donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets for those in need.

Our towels are laundered on site, we use non bio detergent and low temperatures. Our guests are encouraged via room information to reuse towels rather than daily replacement, to help us cut down on our energy use and as a better decision for the environment.

Solar panel

We gain a percentage of our energy from the solar panels that we have installed. These take in all the lovely sunshine the south coast is lucky to benefit from.

Our solar panels are located at the back side of our roof, facing the back garden.
