Sustainability at Budock Vean

From biomass boilers and kitchen composting to electric car charging points and organically managed gardens, at Budock Vean Hotel we continue to strive towards a more sustainable future.

The biomass heating which now provides the majority of heating and hot water for the site, significantly reduces fossil fuel needs. Our hotel has also seen a major investment in LEDs inside and outside (which) will have helped cut electricity costs. This is complemented with other green measures such as a Heatsaver pool cover, inverter controls for pumps, low flow showers and a flood prevention system.

Our hotel’s award-winning restaurant is also excellent at showcasing a great deal of Cornish produce giving the guests a taste of the region.

It has been a labour of love during the Barlow family’s 25 years of owning the Budock Vean not just to restore and refurbish the historic house and gardens but also to put it ahead of the curve of 21st Century eco-requirements. “Over the years our family and the Budock Vean team has determined to be as environmentally friendly as we conceivably can, both inside and out,” says Martin Barlow.
