It’s not always easy to do the right thing but we are trying to take steps to do our bit. Here are a few things that we do at The Stables and The Hen House to minimise our environmental impact:

  • All the laundry and ironing is done on site and we dry things outside when we can.
  • We use refillable toiletries and washing up liquid in the cottages to reduce plastic waste.
  • Ecover cleaning products are used for cleaning which are kinder to the environment.
  • We employ (lovely!) local people for help with cleaning.
  • Guests are encouraged to recycle as much as they can.
  • We promote cycling, walking and riding breaks and provide route maps and storage for bikes and grazing for horses.
  • The cottages are recently converted so have great insulation which makes them more energy efficient.
  • If you want to come without a car then we are usually happy to arrange transport from local train stations or bring your bike and cycle to the cottages along the lanes or canal path.
  • We walk to work!
