Steps We Take To Be More Eco-Friendly And Reduce Our Environmental Impact
💚 Shop local – most of our welcome hamper goodies are from the local farm shop – Hartley Farm. We also encourage guests to shop here too.
💚 Refill toiletries – Refillable Duck Island shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand wash provided at the cottage.
💚 Recycle Nespresso pods and we encourage guests to recycle other waste.
💚 Good quality Miele kitchen appliances that last.
💚 Guppyfriend washing bag for the washing machine to stop micro-plastic pollution.
💚 EcoEgg Laundry Egg as seen on BBC1’s ‘Shop Well for the Planet’. A unique and innovative laundry washing system that completely replaces laundry detergent and fabric conditioner, giving you a kinder laundry solution.
💚 Rapid charging electric car charger – for EV owners.
💚 Burghope is a new renovation – we used all recycled Bath stone to build the cottage and it is fully insulated. Burghope is also close to public transport links – bus and train.
💚 Mini Radnor Preserves marmalade and preserve jars in the welcome hamper to avoid waste.
💚 Fresh herbs and bee-friendly flowers in the garden – we even leave the berries at the back for birds.
💚 Lavender from the garden used in the cottage.
