Our Green Credentials
At Hartsop Fold we are privileged to be in one of the most beautiful parts of the Lake District and we take our stewardship very seriously and are keen to minimise our impact on the local area and the environment.
As part of our £400,000 refurbishment we have installed a large, state-of-the-art Biomass boiler which provides an environmentally sound heating solution to the lodge park. The new boiler provides unlimited heating and hot water to all the 12 lodges in a very efficient and eco-friendly way.
Biomass is classed as carbon-neutral renewable energy because it burns wood pellets which emit the the same amount of carbon dioxide as was absorbed while the trees were growing.
We also encourage our guests to recycle where possible and have a dedicated recycling area on the site.
Our lodges have been fitted with low energy LED lightbulbs and all the lighting around the site at night is designed to be energy-efficient and non-intrusive. That means that you can enjoy the star-gazing available on clear nights because of the lack of light pollution!
During our refurbishment we used where possible locally-sourced labour and materials, including slate from a local quarry.
