Ardtorna Environmental Policy

At Ardtorna we are only too aware of how much our guests appreciate our beautiful surrounding flora and fauna and we try to run our business in a manner that is as environmentally friendly as possible.

  • We source local produce wherever we can – please see our Provenance page.
  • We make our own jams and marmalades.
    We use an eco friendly ground source heat pump for all our heating and hot water, and are currently looking into recycling heat from our on-site laundry facility.
  • We do our best to recycle all glass, metal, cans, plastic, paper and household waste.
  • We are committed to helping to conserve our planet’s precious water stores so we ask our guests to place towels on the rail that they will use again, and to place towels in the bath for cleaning.
  • We use natural bio degradable cleaning products wherever possible.
  • We use Internet based marketing to eliminate marketing literature.
  • As the majority of our business is conducted over the Internet or return visitors, we use e-mail for booking confirmations, directions and general advice for the area.
  • The paper that we use in our printer is from sustainably managed resources, PEFC or recycled.
  • We use LED, energy saving light bulbs throughout the property.
  • We can provide walking and cycling information so that our guests may enjoy nature in a sustainable, natural way.
  • We provide storage for cycles, and help with mechanical problems that sometimes occur when enjoying the abundance of trails that are close by.

Whilst we endeavour to be sustainable and reduce our carbon footprint which has a minimal impact on the environment, we would like to assure our guests that this involves no compromise on our 5 star gold comfort and quality.
