Sustainability on The Farm

Nestled in the heart of rural England within the Malvern Hills, we deeply appreciate and strive to preserve the stunning environment that surrounds us. The Malvern Hills are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and as a biological and geographical Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). As passionate outdoor enthusiasts who love walking these beautiful trails, we feel a profound responsibility to maintain and nurture this precious landscape.

We have made every effort to be as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible by:

 

  • Using reused or upcycled furniture.
  • We provide recycling bins alongside waste bins to encourage guests to recycle.
  • We are single-use plastic free zone.
  • Using environmentally friendly chemicals for cleaning and guests use.
  • We consider the environmental, social, and ethical impacts of the goods and services we purchase. For example, we supply Who Gives a Crap toilet paper, made from eco-friendly bamboo, with the company donating 50% of its profits to provide toilet facilities in developing countries.
  • We provide refillable organic toiletries from Faith in Nature, which are vegan, cruelty-free, and minimise surfactants, parabens, and silicones while aiming for zero waste.
  • We use refillable surface spray from Method, an eco-friendly brand with packaging made from 100% recycled materials.
  • All food provided in hampers or welcome packs is locally sourced or homegrown.
  • We reduce resource consumption, including energy, water, and raw materials, and strive to use resources efficiently.
  • We utilise solar panels to generate sustainable energy.
  • We are constantly looking at what we do already and consider how we can change to do more.

Keeping it local

While we already take significant measures to ensure our site is sustainable, our mission extends to educating our guests and encouraging them to make sustainable choices. We urge our guests to support local establishments, such as Clive’s Fruit Farm and The Nest, as well as local pubs like The Farmers Arms and The Duke of York. By shopping locally, guests can contribute to the community and embrace sustainable practices during their stay.
