Foxhill Barn B & B Environmental Policy

Here at Foxhill we are committed to providing a good quality service whilst minimising the effect our activities have on the environment.

Some of the main steps we have taken to reduce our impact are: -

  • Promoting “Car free” activities through the development of a series of circular walks commencing here at Foxhill and providing information on cycling and wildlife watching

  • We have created an area of new woodland, using native tree species to provide food for our local wildlife and have put up a variety of bird boxes for different species

  • We have created a small wildflower meadow and leave long grassy areas to allow grasses and other wildfowers to seed providing food for birds and insects.

  • We also garden without pesticides and our planting is designed to provide food and shelter to birds and insects

  • Use of environmentally friendly cleaning products

  • Adoption of a towel and linen policy to avoid unnecessary laundry

  • We have our own solar panels and use low energy lighting

  • Where possible we use local suppliers for our breakfasts to reduce food miles

  • We have our own vegetable garden to produce food for ourselves and our guests

  • Some of our produce is used to produce chutneys and preserves which we sell to our guests and at local fairs and Farmers Markets

  • Provide guests with information to help them reduce their environmental impact whilst enjoying all the benefits of staying in this beautiful area of the country and encourage them to follow the Forest of Bowland Visitor code.

  • All vegetable waste is composted for use in our own garden.

  • Newspaper and cardboard are either used for mulching in our vegetable garden or composted. Non compostable magazines and cardboard are taken to our local recycling facility.

  • Plastic bottles are collected by Ribble Valley B.C. We take all other recyclable plastic to our local recycling facility.

  • Batteries and any other hazardous waste are also taken to our local recycling facility.

  • We sell Forest of Bowland Badges to support the Champion Bowland.

  • Our web host 1&1 is proud to be the first large web host who relies solely on renewable energy. 1&1 now uses wind, water and solar power in accordance with the Renewable Energy Certification System (RECS).
