Looking to the future...

We are continuing our efforts to phase out single-use plastics and reducing our food waste in partnership with Winnow. We also help to support the local community as well as a variety of initiatives, and together with The TreadRight Foundation, we strive to #MakeTravelMatter.

Our herb garden

We sustain our own herb garden and our food waste is taken to a bio-digester, where it is turned into electricity, with the bi-product used as fertiliser by local farmers. In our hotel, we will be using Leitha CleanCoat™, an effective and sustainable self-disinfection solution, further improving the wellbeing of staff and guests.

We are proud to work closely with...

  • Longman of West Cadbury

Green Team magazine

At The Acorn and our sister hotel Summer Lodge Country House Hotel & Restaurant, we have our own magazine where we keep our colleagues in the hotel informed about our progress and sustainability issues.
