We have always cared deeply about our environment. After all, we know that lots of our guests come here to enjoy our beautiful countryside and rivers. As guardians of 20 miles of rivers, we take our responsibility seriously.
Since 2009 we have been working on making our hotel as green as possible. This hasn't been easy in a 300 year old building!
We have made huge strides though and done lots of things some small, such as fitting low energy light bulbs, and some large, like building an Eco Energy Centre in February 2013, which now provides all of the heat and hot water for the hotel. As well as this, 100% of our electricity now comes from renewable sources.
We reinforced our local connections with local suppliers
95% of food is fresh and seasonal - majority from local suppliers
The menus in all 3 restaurants are seasonal and changed daily
Local suppliers are celebrated in our menus
We restored our old kitchen garden and now grow our own fruit and vegetables. The vegetable gardener is listed on our menus alongside our other suppliers.
Our hotel and pub remain at the heart of our village village community
We subsidise a weekly lunch for Help the Aged and meeting rooms for WI and local history society. We sponsor our village cricket, rugby and football teams.
We have free secure bicycle storage
We have 16A and 32A electric car charging points powered by our photovoltaic system which is free for guests to use.
There is a very good bus service that provides an hourly service to Exeter or Newquay the No 510. It stops right outside the hotel and goes direct to the Station at Exeter so it is a really convenient service for our guests.
