Environmental Policy

These are some of the ways in which we hope to make a difference:


  • Hot water thermostat set at 60°C.
  • A number of low energy bulbs have been fitted. Others have been identified with a short-term programme to replace.
  • All accessible hot water and heating pipes insulated.
  • Locally sourced supply of sustainable wood used on log fires.
  • Water from the stream in the garden is used to water plants.
  • Programme to use ‘A’ rated electrical appliances for replacements.
  • Toilet ‘Hippos’ fitted to reduce water consumption.


  • Commercial recycling of bottles and plastics.
  • Garden and kitchen waste is composted.

Ways that you may like to help:

  • Please do not leave any unnecessary lights on when you go out.
  • At night please close the curtains before you go out.
  • Please do not leave the TV in stand-by mode.
  • You can adjust the radiator valves in the bedroom and bathroom to suit your own comfort. (Too high a setting and having the windows open at the same time will only contribute to wasting energy.)
  • Ensuring that in winter months the front door is kept closed to retain heat.
  • Support local businesses…it helps to keep them viable for all of us.
