- Do you have a Sustainability Policy?

· Our Sustainability Policy is covered by three main principles. The First is a fundamental focus on the conservation of resources through efficient use of water and energy and careful consideration for a ‘Reduce, Recycle & Reuse’ ethos. The Second Principle calls for products to be locally sourced as much as possible from like-minded businesses. We also encourage plant-based produced for those of our guests who aim to uphold these ideals. The Third Principle focuses on the building itself & a business-wide promise to treasure and uphold our beautiful house & its garden through constant care, regeneration & development. Our garden encourages biodiversity & wild spaces & is home to a compost site enriched with some of our food waste. These principles are instilled throughout all training at The Old Rectory & are upheld in our day-to-day operation.
