Reducing our Environmental Impact

We are sure that you'll agree that every little bit helps when trying to reduce our impact on the planet.
So ...

o In accordance with the recommendations by the 'Love Your Lakes' campaign we have decided that the B&B should be Phosphate Free. So the soaps and detergents we use for laundry, and in the dishwashers, are not putting traces of environmentally unfriendly chemicals in to the already fragile water courses. We feel that we all have a responsibility to preserve and protect this wonderful natural environment and what better way than to lead by example?

o We recycle as much waste from the B&B as possible.

o We buy most of our produce locally to reduce food miles.

o We use low energy bulbs, where possible, throughout the guesthouse (although unfortunately not all the fittings can accept them).

o We have recently installed PIRs for the landing lights and the porch area - this not only makes sense economically but it also makes for a better experience for you when you are staying at the B&B.

o We generally start with the guest rooms comfortably cool. It is easier (and better) to warm a room up than to start with it hot and open the window to cool it down.

o We have the heating on from breakfast until mid morning and then again from late afternoon in to the evening. If it gets a tad chilly we will obviously boost the heating but we endeavour to only use what we need.

o All the radiators and towel rails have thermostatic controls so that when your room reaches the temperature that you want then you don't overheat or waste energy.

o All rooms have double glazed windows to keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

o We only wash towels as and when required during your stay at the B&B. If you hang them we leave them - if you find that they need a wash then simply put them in the shower tray and we'll provide fresh ones for you.

o The complimentary tea trays in the rooms are stocked with Fair Trade coffee, tea and sugar.

o We provide luxury liquid soap, shampoo and shower gel for you to use during your stay. It is of very high quality from The Soap Co rather than small bars of soap that generally get thrown away.

o We encourage guests to take walks that can be done from the Guest House (Skiddaw, Latrigg, Walla Crag, Ashness Bridge, Friars Crag, Derwentwater, Cat Bells). It is so much more satisfying when you don't have to use your car.

o As a further incentive whilst staying at the B&B we offer tickets for the Keswick Launch at a discounted rate.
