Environmental and Sustainability Policies for all three properties
(please email Philippa if you require it in large print)
We are a working farm with the environment in mind. Our pet sheep graze the fields by the properties and our hens roam around a spinney at the top of the field (and provide you with lovely different coloured fresh eggs!) and are fed with our own wheat.
We provide the following products for guests to use during their stay:
Soap: refillable soap; vegan and cruelty free
Bottles made from 100% recycled Prevented Ocean Plastic
10% of profits are donated to charity
Free from SLS and Parabens
Made in the UK
Cleaning Products: low impact (Smol, Method)
Refillable, vegan,cruelty free, plastic free packaging capsules
Lighting: LED lighting
All three properties have boilers that are less than 5 years old. Guests are encouraged to keep the settings on auto, and alter the radiators rather than increase the temperature in the properties.
Wool blankets are in all of the properties, encouraging guests to cosy up with a blanket rather than increase the thermostat.
Solar panels and a house battery are used ‘in house’ for all of the laundry
Guests are encouraged to separate recycling, card, general waste and food waste, in specific bins located in each property. Clear instructions are also available in the enclosed bin shed for extra clarity.
I am onsite, so happy to help where necessary.
Guests are also encouraged to preserve electrical energy where necessary.
We need to support the natural eco system of our septic tank, so we use bamboo (Who Gives a Crap) toilet roll, which breaks down more easily.
Eco friendly cleaning products used.
Our pet sheep keep our fields in great condition and Julian monitors the numbers of animals, depending on season and weather. Panic not, Larry is always here to welcome you!!
EV CHARGER – available for guest’s use
We are very lucky to have a local pub within 5 minutes walking, so a huge bonus to the environment and the local economy!
Bike storage – available in our garage
Sustainable Local Policies
We love to promote local businesses and locally made products.
Guests are greeted with locally sourced milk, fresh eggs from our farm and a freshly made cake by me!
We can arrange locally sourced food deliveries upon arrival if required; details are on our website.
‘Philippa’s Hot Spots” are on our website for our favourite places to visit during your stay.
“Philippa’s Favourite Walks” are also on our website to promote the local area.
