This is a huge topic of news around the world and Tewin Bury Farm are trying to contribute towards lowering carbon emissions. A complimentary shuttle bus is offered to local businesses whereby their guests can leave their own cars on site and travel to and from their place of work. The shuttle bus seats 14 passengers and can therefore save up to 14 additional vehicles being on the road!
We have an electric powered passenger buggy which encourages guests to park their cars and either walk or use the buggy to make their way around the large site.
Bicycles are available to use free of charge for leisurely bike rides around the grounds or for business guests to cycle to work and leave their cars behind.
Our popular onsite restaurant uses local produce where possible. The menu is based on seasonal flavours sourced from local counties with some food sourced within Tewin Bury Farm itself: trout from their own lakes and herbs grown around the site in various locations.
Coming soon: With the ever increasing popularity of electric vehicles, Tewin Bury are in the process of installing an electric car charging point, they don’t expect to be inundated with customers to begin with however this is clearly the way forward and Tewin Bury we like to be prepared.
All hotel lighting, where safe to do so, has been replaced with low energy light bulbs and where possible in public areas is now controlled by motion detectors. Light controlled key cards have been installed in newly refurbished bedrooms.
The entire hotel heating is on a seasonal and daily timer system. The heating is switched off when bedrooms are not in use and during the summer months.
We switch off and unplug any electrical item when not in use
As we continue with our upgrade and refurbishment, the Hotel sources energy efficient products. All air conditioning units are part of the government scheme ECA in conjunction with the carbon trust.
We encourage our guests to reuse towel and bed linen
Education is the key – we hold periodic communication meetings with the hotel team on our commitment to environmental issues. Recycling results published and targets set. An internal audit is carried out to encourage commitment.
We have been awarded compliance awards from both Green Star and Crawleys for our commitment to green issues. We re currently working towards hotel compliance to the ‘green tourism’ award scheme.
We have recently invested in a full Solar Panel system on our new “Meadow Barn”, these panels produce 50 kw of electricity which is enough to cover our basic energy usage in the hotel.
