Environmental Policy

We are committed to sustainable living and protecting our environment especially as we live within the North Devon Biosphere. The following is a list of what we're doing.

Being vegetarian - in truth pescetarian and catering for Vegans. Less of our planet's land and less fuel is used in the production of our food.
Food - Whenever possible we purchase food from local sources. We use only organic milk. Eggs are free range. We also purchase organic and Fairtrade coffee. Wild herbs from the garden add zest to the breakfast. Wild blackberries add sweetness to late summer pancakes.
Recycling glass, paper, plastic milk containers, aluminium & tin cans. We only make trips to the local tip every few months since we recycle or reuse most of what we have. We also love to go shopping to the local Charity shops in Bideford for household items and clothing. We in turn donate things we no longer need or use back to the Charity shops
Paper - We use copy paper that has recycled content. We do not print brochures to save trees. Business documents and sensitive junk mail is burned as fuel.
Encouraging walking and cycling by providing local maps for our guests and bus timetables. A walking holiday is less demanding on the environment than touring/sight seeing by car. Cycling and hiking can be done from our front door, straight on to the Tarka Trail.
Packaging - choosing products with less packaging to reduce rubbish and using re-cycled toilet paper.
Light bulbs - have been replaced with energy-saving ones.
Plastic Bags we use cloth bags for shopping. Sometimes we forget to bring them and reuse the plastic bags as rubbish bin liners.
Cleaning Products We use environmentally friendly cleaning products to clean the b&b and do the laundry where we can.
Soap and shampoo - dispensers reduce waste in guest bathrooms
Laundry - We wash bed and bath linens with an A' Energy rated washer. During good weather a clothes line is used to dry guest linens. We don't use a tumble dryer.

What We Plan To Do 
Continually monitor our activities and take every opportunity to reduce our impact on the planet. 

What our guests can do
Turn off lights when you leave your room.
Enjoy the shower as showers use less water than baths.
Bed and bath linens are cleaned for each guest but not changed on a daily basis to conserve water. If you need clean linens please let us know. Also hang towels after bathing and we will dry them on the clothes line (weather permitting).
