What are we doing at Bank House to save energy and waste?


Tourism is not a green activity but accommodation providers across the world are finding ways to cut energy use and save resources.  At Bank House this includes:

  • Heating and hot water provided via bio mass (a wood pellet boiler with fuel from an accredited source)

  • LED lighting throughout the property.

  • Constant circulation of hot water – no need to run the tap to get hot water through

  • We ask B&B guests to order cooked breakfast – you are only served what you have ordered which cuts down on food waste.

  • Refillable bottles of tap water are provided in bedrooms

  • We provide toiletries (shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, hand wash and moisturiser) in 250 ml refillable bottles.  Individual soap tablets are still provided but sadly are plastic wrapped

  • We try to keep our waste to a minimum.  All glass, paper, card, tins and hard plastics are separated from waste and recycled.  Uncooked vegetable wasted is composted.

  • Towels are changed on request rather than daily – additional towels are always available in the room so you won’t run short

  • An external electric socket is available for EV charging although this is currently limited – a full EV charging point is being planned

  • We shop locally with our butcher, local co-op and farmer’s market and also use produce from our allotment.
