Holders of the gold Award by green tourism
We are eco-friendly
Glynn Barton is a unique and beautiful place set in the Glynn Valley in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have 13 acres surrounded by stunning woods and fields which are packed full of plants and wildlife.
As a holder of the Gold award by Green Tourism, we are committed to protecting our environment by constantly striving to minimise our environmental impact. Our aim is to ensure long term sustainability and to act responsibly to ensure the preservation of the natural beauty of the site, its wildlife and plant life. We aim to minimise the use of fossil fuels, water and to reduce the amount of waste generated which cannot be recycled.
As guests of Glynn Barton, you’ll be having an eco- friendly holiday without even realising it. We ask you to support us in protecting our environment by acting responsibly and helping us implement our initiatives listed below.
Recycling & Cleaning
We provide all the facilities for our guests to separate and dispose of their waste in the correct way at our recycling point. We are committed to reducing the waste we produce that goes to landfill sites to an absolute minimum. We often use these in our Arts & crafts workshops. Don’t lose it, reuse it!
We have replaced all detergents and cleaning products with Eco friendly equivalents which we use to clean the cottages and which we provide for you to use.
Heating & Water
All the hot water and heating, including for our indoor pool is powered by a biomass boiler and solar panels. We have installed low energy light bulbs where ever possible and timer controls on all outdoor communal lights. We use low temperature dishwasher and washing machine programs.
We encourage the use of our tumble dryers to be kept to a minimum and have installed a coin meter to try to discourage unnecessary use. We donate the funds collected to our chosen charity annually.
