Higher Bowden Holiday Cottages
Limited has a commitment to create a sustainable tourism business which
constantly seeks to reduce its overall effect on the environment and exceed the
"green expectations" of our guests.
"In all our activities we will
continuously work towards reducing our impact on the environment"
In order to achieve this
commitment the organisation will:
Meet all regulatory and consent requirement relevant to our business.
Where possible and practical
to purchase locally and promote local suppliers to the guests. Information on Kate's Cuisine and the local village shop deliveries
are provided to guests both on this website and in a letter sent to prior to your arrival.
Be efficient in the use of
all resources including water, electricity and gas. We provide energy monitors in all cottages to help guests manage their
use of electricity.
Increase the recycling of
waste, when services are available from local service providers, and
compost/digest food waste whenever practical. We can currently recycle glass, cardboard, paper, plastics and cans. We also have a "Cone" food digester for those guests wishing to dispose of
their waste food in an environmentally friendly manner.
Introduce guests to
environmental and other issues related to visiting & living in the
countryside. We have a detailed set of information for guests to take in the "nature corner" in our games room.
In 2012 the current iPhone App will be enhanced with a wildlife spotter for
guests to use around our site. We
are also in the process of enhancing our nature trail and wildlife focus with the
introduction of Sheep/lambs, Guinea Pigs and fish during 2012 which all guests
can enjoy either close-up or at a distance!
