Our commitment to the environment

We are not comfortable with the environmental impact of plastic and so have provided water & milk in glass bottles so that we can re-use them and neither in the waste of hotel size bottles of toiletries. We are more than happy to provide you with Cole & Lewis body wash, shampoo & conditioner which is free from parabens, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, TEA, MEA, MI & MCI upon request or more handmade natural soap which is made on site by Jane.

We are not on mains drainage so we have a water treatment plant installed for the pod waste water, after being treated (with no chemicals) this clean water goes into a soak away back into the land.

Please do not flush make-up/baby wipes, cotton wool, kitchen roll, sanitary towels, tampons, condoms or any other than what should be flushed down the toilet.

We try and recycle as much waste as possible. We have two recycling bins by the gate into the car park. The green one is for glass, paper & cardboard and the grey one for plastic bottles, tins, plastic containers (not cellophane or cling film) and batteries. There is a brown bin for food waste and an ordinary dustbin for general waste.

The cleaning products we use are environmentally safe and we use the Norwex brand (developed to clean without the use of harmful chemicals) to clean the pod after each guest. The washing up liquid in the dispenser is Ecover brand as is the cleaning spray.

Please be mindful of the amount of electricity being used at one time, if, for example the coffee machine, microwave and t.v are all on, it is possible that they may trip out the mains circuit.

In order to reduce the amount of light pollution we have LED lighting, downward facing, operated by PIR, which gives sufficient light to walk to and from your pod without spoiling the night sky for those who wish to enjoy it.

And lastly please be conscious of not wasting water.
