Sustainability

Protecting our natural environment

We are committed to taking steps to become more sustainable where possible. Our wood-chip boiler powers both Boconnoc House and the Dairy Cottage, which is a sustainable fuel source. We utilise local, environmentally friendly toiletries within the house and cottages and we use as much local produce as possible within our catering offering. We have a small kitchen garden, which we have extended this year and aim to use as much home-grown produce as possible going forward.

We have a tree re-planting programme, which aims to replenish all the trees fallen through storm damage over the years as well as planting further trees and plants to protect our thriving eco-system. We carefully manage the cutting of grasses and gardens so that wildlife can flourish as it should. We have recycling facilities through-out all of our cottages and in the house including composting. We review our sustainability practices on a regular basis to protect the natural surroundings we hold very dearly here at Boconnoc.
