We invite you to be a responsible visitor – seven things you can do to help save the planet!
- Conserve energy – reduce energy by limiting the use of the lights and heating in your bedroom.
- Give the car a rest! Why not leave your car behind during your stay. If you are planning to go exploring the surrounding areas, we can supply walking routes and public transport information.
- Shop local – use local products, they will give you a flavour of Ambleside, The Lake District and surrounding areas and please help support local communities.
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – try to avoid overly packaged goods and say no to that extra carrier bag.
- Be Water Wise – please use water wisely. Example: Why not turn off the water when brushing your teeth. Also why not try to comply with our reuse towel policy!
- Respect nature – help us look after our beautiful landscape and natural wildlife that we enjoy in the Lake District. We have lots of wildlife that call this beautiful area home including hedgehogs, rabbits, numerous species of birds and insects etc… Please respect their privacy and keep your distance.
