The Green House

Claiming to be "the greenest hotel in the UK," this property is more than just talk. Sure, it has LED lighting, uses solar power to heat water and boasts a house restaurant that serves "de-poshified fine food" featuring daily deliveries of local meat, vegetables, dairy and seafood. But the real proof is in the details. In the 32 gorgeous guest rooms, you will find Forest Stewardship Council-certified wallpaper made with vegetable inks and furniture crafted from storm-felled trees. Suppliers are assessed using environmental standards, and the hotel itself has earned GOLD level status from the UK's Green Tourism board. From training staff in sustainability principles to serving locally brewed beers and spirits in the bar, this property raises the standard for the greening of the hotel industry.
