Bed and breakfast accomodation and self-catering holidays  in Peak District Cheshire

Our Environment

We consider ourselves fortunate to live in the beautiful Peak District National Park.  In order to care for our environment we are following these guidelines we have outlined for ourselves and would be pleased if our guests would assist us in our aims.

Our Natural Environment

The farm is managed sympathetically in agreement with the Countryside Stewardship.

Our Commitment to Energy Saving

  • Thermostatic radiator valves on all radiators.
  • Conscious of ‘Food Miles’ we support the local economy by produce being sourced within Peak National Park or within 15 miles
  • In addition the food is generally fresher, traceable and usually uses far less packaging
  • A number of low energy bulbs have been fitted
  • Our own supply of sustainable wood used on log fires
  • Our spring water is supplied by our own borehole
  • This in turn is fed back to the land via our septic tank forming a full environmental circle

Please support us in our aims by:

  • Trying not to leave any unnecessary lights on when you go out and when you go to bed

  • During the winter nights please close the curtains in your bedroom at dusk as this keeps your room warmer

  • Please turn off the TV and do not leave it on standby mode

  • Adjust the radiator valves in the bedroom and bathroom to suit you rather than opening the windows to cool down a room

  • Please close the doors to retain heat

  • Please place papers and bottles at the side of your room waste bin in order for us to recycle

  • Support local businesses; help us to keep our villages alive

Our Recycling Policy

  • Council recycling boxes are provided at the farm for bottles, cans and paper

  • Garden/kitchen waste composted

  • Textiles, Clothes and Shoes are taken to the local recycle bank

  • Plastic bottles are recycled

  • Bottled milk is delivered from the local dairy and the bottles returned
