We want you to have a special time staying with us, but we also want to minimise our environmental impact. We have 32 solar panels and an air source heat pump that produce the electricity to help heat the building, swimming pool and to provide hot water. LED bulbs have been used throughout and so that our green policies are a benefit to you as well as the environment we have used natural paints from Earthborn and Little Green, natural and organic fabrics and natural toiletries produced locally in Rye by Wideye, which we refill to reduce plastic waste.
A Pod Point is available to owners of electric and hybrid cars.
Behind the scenes we use biodegradable and compostable bin bags. We’ve even found some compostable pods for the Nespresso machine. We refill water bottles in the suite and the gym and we recycle as much rubbish as possible. All cleaning products are eco friendly.
Food is from our garden when available and in season, grown along organic principles with no spraying or artificial fertilisers. Food we cannot supply ourselves comes from local producers, organic when possible. Eggs are from our organically fed chickens, Celeste, Madeline, Renata and Bonnie. Fertiliser comes from our pygmy goats, Martha and Molly.
Our garden has plants that need less water and attract bees and butterflies.
We use recycled paper and refillable printer ink in the office and we email as much as possible. We even use a font that uses a little less ink!
