This hotel is proof that luxury and a commitment to sustainability can reside together in harmony.
This beautiful hotel takes classic English country style into the 21st century. A Grade II Victorian villa, it has been transformed into a boutique hotel with just 32 guest rooms. Accommodations feature 32-inch LED flat-screen TVs, Bose iPod docking stations and walk-in showers, as well as Forest Stewardship Council-certified wallpaper made with vegetable inks and furniture crafted from storm-felled trees. In fact, every aspect of "the greenest hotel in the UK" is dedicated to saving the environment, from LED lighting to water heated by solar power. Arbor, the house restaurant, devotes itself to local produce and food artisans, and fresh, homemade biscuits delivered to your room is a nice personalized touch. With its elegant indoor and outdoor spaces, the hotel is popular for weddings.
