Doing our bit!
We make every effort to keep our house as environmentally friendly as possible, whilst at the same time maintaining a high standard of comfort. The Gate House’s construction incooperates good thermal efficiency, underfloor heating on all floors with individual room thermostats and low energy lighting. Furthermore, our dual circuit system uses rain water for flushing toilets, washing clothes and the watering garden. We are very proud of our house, all construction work was carried out either by local builders or by ourselves.
We adopt a similar approach to our bed and breakfast, food is sourced from local producers where possible. Local suppliers provide all our bacon, eggs, sausages, vegetables, all bought fresh before your stay. We attempt to minimise packaging, and default to using the train whenever possible. Something we hope our guests also make good use of during their stay.
We are always willing to try new ways of reducing environmental impact and would welcome any suggestions for further improvement.
