Stable Oak Cottages Sustainability Policy
As a family-run business, we know how important it is to recognise the importance of sustainability and environmental responsibility. We work closely with local businesses to ensure we operate as sustainably and responsibly as we can. We support the local community by employing our only member of staff from down our lane, support local trades, buying local and encouraging our guests to buy local too.
We continuously work to reduce the use of single-use plastics in our cottages. Each cottage offers environmentally friendly complimentary toiletries that are in refillable dispensers The toiletries suppliers used are committed to sustainability and most are not tested on animals, have no chemicals harmful to the environment and supply their products in either refillable containers or recyclable containers. The hand soap is from a local producer just 2 doors down from us!
We encourage guests to buy local products and have days out without the car, using local transport and walking.
Our Welcome Goodies and Breakfast Hampers
Our welcome packs are full of locally-produced products or homemade, which not only reduces our carbon footprint and reduces food miles but supports the local community, providing jobs and income to the local area.
Supporting the local economy
We buy the vast majority of our welcome pack items locally. We provide guidance on where our guests can purchase these items while staying with us or to take home.
